One of the biggest challenges I have with keeping my family on a “real” food diet is snack time. We eat a ton of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as cheese for snack time but sometimes we all really want something sweet. I came across a recipe for strawberry yogurt fruit leather at Honey Sweetened and was inspired to drag out the dehydrator and make some healthy snacks. I altered the recipe a little bit but used the same general idea.
Healthy Homemade Strawbery Yogurt Fruit Leather
2 – 12 oz bags of frozen strawberries
2 cups plain yogurt
1/4 cup honey
Thaw strawberries and drain excess liquid.
Add strawberries, yogurt and honey to food processor or blender.
Pulse until smooth.
Pour mixture on to dehydrator sheets or plastic wrap covered trays.
I poured mine in strips about 3 inches wide making them a little thicker along the edges since the outside edge will dry quicker.
Dry at 95 degrees. Mine took about 18 hours to dry.
Once they were done I rolled the fruit leather in plastic wrap.
The kids LOVED these and I love that they are good for them.
