Homemade Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups!

Yummmm! One of my most favorite snacks from growing up is fruit roll ups! Especially the strawberry flavor!

I was googling some different recipes yesterday and came across a couple of different fruit roll-up recipes. I merged them together and headed off to the Cobb Farmers Market. It was perfect, as they had strawberries for $0.50! So, I grabbed 3 of them so that I could use at least half for this recipe.

Ingredients:

1.5 pints fresh strawberries

1 gala apple

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tsp maple syrup

 

Instructions:

Heat oven to 175F. Slice apple and strawberries. Throw into a pot.  Add juice of 1 lemon and maple syrup (or sweetener of choice). Tip: This recipe does not really need a sweetener. Heat the ingredients for approximately 4-5 minutes.

Cook the fruit puree for approximately 8 hours or until the liquid has cooked out.

I just tasted it and it is delicious!! I am so excited that I can make a healthier (no preservatives and all natural) version of one of my favorite childhood snacks!

P.S. An update to the physical activity challenge: I have successfully made it through the 1st 4 days of May.  I went back to Crossfit on the 2nd (which was so hard!), I took the dogs on a long walk yesterday, and I did about 4 hours of cleaning the house today! 27 days to go 🙂

Happy Sunday!
