Ingredients

  • 10 ounces strawberries (fresh or defrosted frozen)
  • 1/2 beet, small cooked and peeled
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

Instructions

  • In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients. Puree until completely smooth and set aside.
  • Position your oven racks in the bottom and top thirds of your oven and heat to 170°F.
  • Line two large baking sheets with silicone baking mats. If you do not have baking mats, you can use lightly greased parchment paper, but I didn’t find it to work as well as baking mats.
  • Pour 1/2 of the fruit/veggie puree into the center of each lined baking sheet. Using a spatula, spread the puree thinly over the baking sheet. It is important to spread it as evenly as possible to make sure that the fruit dehydrates at an even rate.
  • Place baking sheets into the oven and cook until the fruit looks dry and is firm to the touch. Usually 4-5 hours depending on how thin the puree is spread.
  • Once the fruit is leathery yet tacky to the touch, turn off the oven and allow the fruit leather to cool down to room temperature IN the oven.
  • Once cool, top the fruit leather with a sheet of parchment paper and flip baking sheet over onto the counter. Carefully and slowly lift the fruit leather off of the baking mat.
  • Roll the fruit leather in the parchment paper. Using kitchen sheers, cut the fruit leather into about 1 inch segments. Secure with string if preferred.
  • Store in an air-tight container in fridge for up to 3 weeks.

Notes

  • This recipe is veggie-loaded, 100% natural Fruit By The Foot!
  • It requires only 3 ingredients!
  • You only need a blender, a baking sheet, a silicone mat and an oven to make this strawberry beet fruit leather.
