How to make homemade fruit leather bigger than your head :)

This “mandatory stay at home” Covid craziness has taken me a bit to get used to but I am truly starting to enjoy the slower pace of life. I am loving this unique time with my sweet family and am finding myself enjoying the little things again. I am making my kid homemade fruit leather (bigger than her head!!), dehydrating fruit, baking my homemade sourdough bread, playing more and I feel so much more relaxed.

I want you encourage you also make the best of this unique time so I am posting this to encourage you to get back to the “little things”! Please do not go out and buy an expensive food dehydrator but a lot of you have a dusty one in a cabinet and could easily bust it out! You can use any fruit / veggie combo you desire but here is one that I made this past weekend and was a huge hit! You can use fresh or frozen fruit or a combo of both.

I bought my 5 tray Excalibur dehydrator YEARS ago online (I believe from the company directly) and highly recommend this brand. The only upgrade I would choose is a timer that turns off the machine – mine does not have this. Also buy the dehydrator “sheets” that fit your machine so you can make the fruit leather as shown below.

Into Vitamix: (fresh, frozen or a combo is fine!)
1-2 bananas
Chopped pineapple
5-6 strawberries
4 cutie oranges
1 head romaine lettuce
2-3 tablespoons organic whole flax-seeds
1-2 tablespoons of water if needed

BLEND until smooth – pour onto your dehydrator sheets and smooth with a spatula. Dehydrate at 140 deg F for at least 13-15 hours or until your desired crispiness. Break into pieces and store in a sealed Ziploc.

KEEP MOVING during this crazy time. I am here for you!!!
