STRAWBERRY & YOGHURT FRUIT LEATHER

These fruit roll ups are pretty, tasty and have just the right amount of sweetness! This is a great recipe for adding to the lunch box for kids, and so quick to prepare! You can use cooked pureed strawberries or that leftover bit of strawberry jam in the fridge or even store-bought strawberry flavoured yoghurt if you like. Greek yoghurt, natural yoghurt or any other yoghurts can also be used. Enjoy!
   

Ingredients for  STRAWBERRY & YOGHURT FRUIT LEATHER


YIELD: 1 Tray (multiply for bigger batches)

Greek-Style Yoghurt

(or other type of yoghurt)

1 1/2 cups

Cooked Strawberries, Pureed

(or Jam)

2 tablespoons

Desiccated Coconut

(optional)

1 teaspoon

 
METHOD:

1.  Blend yoghurt and strawberry puree (or strawberry jam) together until smooth.
2.  Line a dehydrator tray with non-stick baking paper (cut to size/shape as required so it fits inside the tray). If the tray is not deep enough, grease the tray instead.
3.  Spoon puree evenly onto a greased fruit roll tray.
4.  Sprinkle the top of the mixture with desiccated coconut, if desired.
5.  Dehydrate for 5-7 hours at 55°C (130°F) or until dry. Surface will be slightly sticky.
6.  Roll up to form a log and slice into 6-8 pieces or wrap the whole log in extra baking paper, twist the ends and freeze for longer storage.
7.  Fruit leather can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks or frozen for up to 3 months.
