Instructions
  1. Combine the ingredients for each recipe separately in a blender, essentially you’re making 2 smoothies.
  2. Grease a baking tray with a little oil (I use coconut, but olive oil works well too) wipe the tray with kitchen towel to make sure it’s a thin layer and evenly spread.
  3. Pour the fruit mixture onto the tray and spread it out with a spatula leaving it about ½ cm thick – the edges will dehydrate faster so try to make it slightly thicker around the edge.
  4. Place in the oven and set it to the lowest temperature, around 60⁰C is ideal to protect the nutrients and leave to dehydrate for 4-6 hours. If you find the edges are drying out too rapidly, simply brush with a little water and continue dehydrating.
  5. You can tell when it’s done when it’s no longer sticky. If you need to go out, simply turn the oven off, leaving the tray inside, and turn on again when you can.
  6. Once dehydrated, remove from the oven and gently peel the fruit leather from the tray. You can leave it as a sheet, roll it and cut into portions or make shapes – my kids love their fruit hearts.
Recipe Notes

Fruit leathers stick to baking paper. I did get around this by wetting the paper and eventually peeling it off, but this is extra hassle. Parchment paper does work really well but you can get crease indents on the fruit leather so for a really clean roll its best to put the mixture straight on the tray or on a silicone baking mat.

If the leathers are still slightly sticky on the bottom, simply peel off the tray, flip it over and dehydrate for another half hour on the other side.
