Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups Recipe
This fruit roll-ups recipe is so easy to make! Kids will love having these as a snack. We love that they are made with real fruit and no added sugar since they are sweetened with honey.
Note: Just a friendly reminder that honey should not be given to babies under 1 year of age.
You can experiment with different fruit combinations to make these fruit leather roll-ups – use all strawberry or mix strawberry with raspberry, blueberries and blackberries. If you don’t like the seeds, strain the puree with a mesh strainer for a smooth finish.

These fruit roll-ups make great treats for lunches! It’s even a fun activity to do in the summer with the kids. You can go out berry picking and then make your fruit leather roll-ups when you get home. If you have any extra fruit, turn them into real fruit popsicles too!
Get the kids involved!
Kids can help you make these roll-ups. Have the kids help to wash the berries and pick off any stems. They can help pour in the honey and lemon juice. They will also love spreading out the puree. And of course, get the kids to do the rolling!
Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups
- 5 cups berries
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 170 degrees Fahrenheit (or the lowest temperature your oven will go).
- Line a large (17×12 inch) rimmed baking pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- Rinse berries and remove stems from berries, if necessary.
- In a blender or food processor, add the berries.
- Add honey and lemon juice and then blend until smooth.
- For a smooth finish, pour puree through a fine mesh strainer to remove seeds.
- Pour pureed fruit onto baking sheet and spread evenly over the entire pan.
- Place pan in oven and bake for 5-6 hours, rotating the pan halfway through the drying process. Remove from oven when the puree has set and is no longer sticky.
- Allow the pan to cool completely. If you used a silicone baking mat, gently peel the cooled fruit leather and transfer onto a large sheet of wax paper.
- Cut the paper-lined fruit leather into long strips and roll.
- Store fruit roll-ups in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
