Satisfy your sweet tooth with a nutrient-packed fruit leather
Summer is the perfect time to gather up the fresh fruit for some homemade fruit leather! We’ve used fresh blueberries in this recipe for a beautiful purple roll that will outshine those store bought fruit roll-ups. Add in organic, unsweetened applesauce for a shortcut to extra fiber and natural sweetness. Our Beef Gelatin is a perfect companion for that sticky texture plus a bonus of added protein. Your kids will love them!
Blueberry Fruit Leather
2 c. fresh blueberries
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
2 c. unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp. Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin
2 tbsp. raw honey (optional)
Add the blueberries, vanilla, and sea salt to a blender. Blend on high until smooth.
Stir the applesauce, lemon juice, Beef Gelatin, and honey (if using) in a small saucepan. Place the saucepan over medium-low heat and stir continuously until the gelatin and honey are dissolved.
Pour into the blender and blend again on high until very smooth.
Pour the mix onto teflex-style dehydrator sheets to about 1/4″ thickness. Dehydrate according to your dehydrators’ instructions (generally 135F for 8 hours). Slice and store wrapped with parchment in a ziplock bag.
