Dried pineapple is one of my favorite low fat snacks. It’s sweet, tangy, and addicting. Like a potato chip you can’t eat just one. My daughter shares my love of dried pineapple, but dried pineapple rings are a bit harder for her to chew on her own. These fruit roll-ups are super easy for her to eat, and at the same time healthy. The added bonus of making these fruit roll-ups yourself, is that they do not contain any added sugar, additives, or preservatives, unlike the fruit leather you buy in the grocery store. This pineapple fruit roll-up is 100 percent fruit and nothing else, so they definitely are a snack that you can feel okay about giving your little ones. Start with a ripe pineapple and let your oven or dehydrator do the rest!
Here’s what you need:
1 ripe pineapple, skin removed and core disposed of. Note if you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix, you can leave the core in.
Place pineapple in the blender, and blend until smooth:
Pour out onto parchment paper and smooth out evenly:
Place in oven on 135 degrees Fahrenheit, or the lowest setting on your oven. Let bake for 4-6 hours.
Remove from parchment paper,
Roll, and enjoy!! If you like these try my recipe for Strawberry Fruit Roll-Up or my recipe for Tropical Punch Fruit Roll-Ups! Both are great low-fat, and low calorie snack options.
