Taking Sugar Out – One Snack at a Time!

fruit-rollups-recipeSometimes it can be hard to find some “go-to” snacks that our kids enjoy.  So much of the grab and go snacks on the grocery shelves are so full of sugars and ingredients that we cannot pronounce.
This Summer we have been searching the internet for some healthy snacks that our kids not only enjoy but can help make.  We didn’t want anything too complicated, but we still wanted to ensure that the snacks were healthy and yummy.    Well, we found one!  (A few actually, but today we are sharing our Mango fave!)

Kelly Senyei from www.justataste.com seemed to have the same criteria that we had in making healthy snacks for her family.  Healthy Mango Fruit Roll Ups.. all that you need is mangos and an oven (or if you go super easy…a food processor or hand chopper).  These fruit roll ups were an immediate hit with the kids and with Will & I too!

Kelly gives a step by step guide on how to make these delicious treats as well, the link will provide an easy video tutorial that your kids may find helpful if they venture to make them on their own!

Ingredients –

4 cups diced ripe mango (from about 3 large mangoes)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 175ºF and line two rimmed baking sheets with Silpats or parchment paper.

Puree the mango in a food processor or blender until smooth.

Divide the purée evenly between the two prepared pans, and using an off-set spatula, spread the purée as flat and as evenly as possible until it’s about 1/8-inch thick.

Bake the purée for 3 to 4 hours. (See Kelly’s Notes.) The fruit roll-ups are done when the purée is dry to the touch and pliable. If the bottom side of the roll-ups is still wet after some time, flip the roll-ups over and continue baking them until they are fully dried.

Remove the roll-ups from the oven. Place a piece of wax paper on top of the roll-ups and then peel off the wax paper and the roll-ups together. Cut the sheet into long strips and then roll up the strips.

Kelly’s Notes:

The total baking time will vary depending on the exact thickness of your fruit roll-ups and the differing temperatures of ovens.

The fruit roll-ups will last for up to 1 week when stored in an air-tight container.
