All-natural and pure fruit goodness, these homemade paleo and keto fruit roll-ups are just 1 ingredient, super easy, and require no fancy equipment!
Homemade Paleo & Keto Fruit Roll-Ups 🍓
Pure Fruit ‘N Only Fruit!
That’s right, these sugar free fruit roll-ups are made with just fruit. Particularly now that summer is in full swing, and berries are at their prime, you’ll likely find that this sugar-free fruit leather needs little help (if at all!).
And these, in all honesty are just amazing. Way (way!) better than I expected before I tried them out. As in, they actually come out like proper candy.
Sticky, chewy and intensely fruity goodness.
You can definitely use a dehydrator if you’ve got one, but you can whip these guys up in your oven too by setting it to its lowest temperature (what I did!).
So you puree your fruit of choice (berries if keto, you can throw in mango if paleo too), sieve out any seeds, spread on a baking tray, and bake at a super low temp for a few hours.
And ta-da pure fruit roll-ups emerge!
The Sweetener 🍯
If you’re using prime summer berries (and been keto for some time), you’ll likely find that these keto fruit roll-ups need no extra sweetener. Particularly if going for pure strawberries, blackberries or blueberries.
But overall, you can pretty much use whatever sweetener floats your boat. As even though you’ll get slightly different tasting results with each sweetener, they’re really not too fussy.
And if using xylitol, make sure to be careful if you have a pup (or furry creature) around the house, as it’s highly toxic to the little guys! 🐕
All-Natural Homemade Paleo & Keto Fruit Roll-Ups
- 2 cups berries of choice *
- 1-3 tablespoons xylitol or sweetener of choice, optional
- baking mat or parchment paper
- Pure your berries of choice in a high speed blender until super smooth (I love doing 2 parts strawberries 1 part raspberries!). Sieve out the seeds from your fruit puree.
- Spread 1 cup of smooth berry pure per baking tray (half sheet size) as evenly as you can, without leaving translucent streaks. I prefer to use a baking mat for smoother results, but lining the tray with parchment paper works great too. And you can always mix different berry flavors in the same tray!
- Dehydrate in your oven at the lowest possible temperature (140-170°F/60-75°C) for 3-4 hours until the center is just no longer sticky to touch. If your oven is old school, you can always leave the door slightly ajar. As a good rule, check in every 30 minutes the first time you whip them up. And you can always dehydrate 2-3 trays at the same time.
- Peel off the fruit leather gently off the baking mat and cut in desired shape. It's possible that the texture feels a little dry, but keep in mind that it will become sticky overnight, so you'll want to roll up the pieces using parchment or wax paper to keep it from sticking. And if you baked on parchment, just cut up the strips along with the paper. The edges can be a little dry, so just trim them off and enjoy as 'fruit chips!'.
- Store in an airtight container in a cool place (or the fridge) for about a week, and in the freezer for a few months.
