Fruit roll ups are just so much fun to eat. I loved them growing up and I still enjoy them quite a bit when I get around them. Talk about an instant trip down nostalgia boulevard! One day recently, I had so much slightly over ripe strawberries on hand, I thought why not make some homemade raw vegan fruit roll ups? And so I did. The result was a delicious, fun to eat snack. The flavors were clean and so much better than the conventional processed roll ups I grew up eating. They turned out so good that I had a hard time not demolishing the entire batch as soon as it was done. Fortunately, it helps that they are very easy to make so you can always make some more!

Making these raw vegan strawberry banana fruit roll ups is very simple, blend all the ingredients in the blender until smooth!

Line a dehydrator tray with both a mesh and silicone sheet. Spread the mixture thinly and evenly onto the silicone sheet. You should end up with about 1 and a half trays worth. Dry it at 115°F for 6 to 8 hours until the surface is dry but the fruit leather is still pliable. If you dried it too much by accident, lightly spritz some water and let it absorb to regain its softness.

Peel the fruit leather off of the silicone sheet. Lay down a piece of parchment paper or wax paper and place the fruit leather on top. Trim the edges to make it straight and cut into your desired rectangular size. Roll it up and tie with a piece of string. If you roll it with the parchment or wax paper facing up, you can see the fruit leather on the outside which makes it pretty.

      Hi Emily,

      Thank you so much for your comment! Yes, you can use an oven instead. You can spread the mixture on a parchment paper and bake at your oven’s lowest temperature for about 4-6 hours until it’s dry to the touch. If the edges get too dry and crispy, you can brush on a little water until it rehydrates. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Hi! I just found you on Instagram today! Thanks for liking my photo. 🙂 I’ve been scrolling through your awesome recipes curiously wondering what kind of dehydrator you use. Forgive me if you’ve said it 8000 times and I happen to of missed it. 😉
