Homemade Blueberry Apple Fruit Leather

Now that my little girl is a toddler, I’ve gotten really into creating fun and healthy treats for her. As a mom who loves healthy food, I’m trying to teach my daughter to enjoy a treat that is both enjoyable and nutritious for her.

It brings me so much joy to create fun food that she enjoys…from  gummy snacks, to smoothies, to fruit leather. She gobbles up this slightly tangy, sweet and chewy homemade fruit leather.


Think the old school fruit roll-ups you used to snack on as a kid, but so much healthier. I wrap these up in parchment paper and keep them in plastic baggies for quick snacks throughout the week.

Of course the spices are optional, but I think it gives the fruit leather a little something extra.
