Fruit Leather

IMG_0142

I definitely grew up in a house where fruit roll ups and gushers were major treats.  Now, I am not even sure if they still make these sugar filled snacks anymore.  However, now and then I do find myself craving something chewy and sweet.  I love this recipe that is low in processed sugar and high in fiber and filled with vitamins!  You can totally mix it up with what fruits you use depending on what you have on hand but  I love the tartness of the berries with the sweet flavors of the mango.  The only downfall of the recipe is it require a great deal of patience.  But aren’t all good things worth the wait?
