Strawberry-Banana and Honey Fruit Leather Tutorial
I've borrowed my friends dehydrator in hopes of creating some new and healthy snacks for my kids (and for me). I wanted to try my hand at homemade fruit leather and this is what I thought up. I just ate ALL of it, while I was waiting for the pictures to load to Blogspot, so I guess it's good.
Strawberry-Banana and Honey Fruit Leather (using dehydrator)
1 container of strawberries
3 Tbs honey
In a food processor or blender, blend the strawberries, banana, and honey until smooth. Taste to make sure it's sweet enough, if not, add more honey or sugar.
Pour the strawberry-banana liquid into the fruit leather insert on your dehydrator, smoothing it out to the sides so it's an even thickness. About 1/4 inch thick. Turn the dehydrator on and let it dry for 8-12 hours. Peel off into strips, store in the fridge in Ziploc bags or an airtight container for 1-2 weeks. Or in the freezer indefinitely. Or eat it all in one sitting while you type up a blog post about it. =)
