Veggie Fruit Roll Ups

This veggie fruit roll ups are a ton healthier than the ones you will find at the store! Plus, they are packed with veggies making it a super fun way to get some more veggies into your kids!

These are a super fun treat to make with your child! I’m sure they will be so excited to be making fruit roll ups, and will be astonished to know that they have carrots in them! It might even help them like carrots in the future, knowing they are in something so yummy!

They do have a long cook time in the oven, but actually making them is super easy. It only takes about 15 minutes, and then they have to bake 4 hours in the oven. This is because they have to dehydrate. You cook these fruit roll ups on the lowest heat setting for a long period of time in order to dehydrate them.

What You Will Need

  1. Strawberries
  2. Raspberries
  3. Carrots- you have to steam them first, so I just buy frozen microwave to steam carrots.
  4. Lemon juice
  5. Maple syrup- adds sweetness, you can omit it for younger babies/toddlers

Substitutions

You can use any mix of fruits and vegetables. You just need around 3 cups of fruit, and 2 cups of strawberries. I recommend carrot because it is harder to detect the taste!

Storage

Store these in the fridge, but they are totally fine to be left out for the day! That makes them great for an on the go snack! These fruit roll ups will be good for about 5 days in the fridge.

How To Make

  1. Set your oven to 170 degrees F. This is the lowest heat your oven will go. The roll ups need to be able to dehydrate, which is why you cook it on low heat, for a longer period of time.
  2. Steam your carrots. I like to buy frozen microwave to steam carrots to make this super easy.
  3. Add all ingredients in a blender and blend as smooth as you can. Make sure there are no chunks.
  4. Pour mixture into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Allow to boil for 10 minutes. This will reduce some of the liquid in the mixture. Doing this cuts the bake time in half!
  5. After it is done boiling, pour mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Spread the mixture evenly making sure it is about 1/8th of an inch thick. Make sure you can’t see through it or see the parchment paper. If it is too thin it will just be crumbly instead of soft and easy to roll.
  6. Bake in oven for about 4 hours or until it is no longer sticky to the touch.
  7. Cut into strips and roll them up!
