Strawberry Fruit Roll Ups:

What you’ll need:

  • 8 ounces strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, or sweetener of choice
How to prepare:
  1. Wash the strawberries and trim off the stems. Place them in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth, about a minute total. There should be no chunks of fruit left in the mixture.
  2. Transfer the strawberry puree into a saucepan, adding in the lemon juice and sugar as well.
  3. Stirring frequently, cook the puree on medium high for approximately 10 minutes, until the mixture has thickened into a jam-like consistency.
  4. Preheat the oven to 170° F.
  5. Pour the puree onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread the mixture with a spatula until it’s thin enough to see through, around 1/8 inch thick.
  6. Cook in the oven for 3-4 hours. The mixture should be tacky, but not sticky to the touch. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely. Transfer to a cutting board lined with wax paper, and use a pizza cutter to cut long strips. Roll them up into fruit rollups, and secure with a bit of tape.
