Healthy snack idea- fruit leather with hidden veggies

Strawberry Fruit Leather Recipe (with Beets)




Yield 16 +

Simple and nutrient-dense natural fruit leather snacks made with fresh strawberries, optional honey, and sneaky extra nutrients from beets.



  1. Preheat the oven to 170°F or use a dehydrator.
  2. Puree the cooled cooked beets, strawberries, honey/maple syrup/dates, and citrus juice in a blender until completely smooth. 
  3. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking mats (safe at low temperatures).
  4. Pour/spread the mixture evenly onto the baking sheets.
  5. Place in oven and cook until firm and no longer sticky to the touch (3-4 hours in most ovens).
  6. Remove from oven and let cool.
  7. Cut into strips and roll up with parchment paper.
  8. Store in an air-tight container until ready to eat.


If using frozen defrosted berries, the liquid will be thinner. If using fresh berries, you may have to add a couple teaspoons of water to get the mixture smooth enough to spread. The mixture should be pourable but not thin enough to run off the baking sheet.

Can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer in an airtight container for up to a week (refrigerator) or two months (freezer).
