Blueberry Fruit Leather with Gelatin

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)

Directions:

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.
