I’ve been on a bit of a healthy snack mission lately. I have a lot of go-to snacks that I make often, but I really wanted to expand my repertoire and come up with some new snacks.
Meghan loves fruity snacks, so I thought homemade fruit roll-ups would be a great place to start. I’ve never been motivated to make my own fruit roll-ups since you can buy fruit-only, no-sugar-added versions and it didn’t seem worth the effort to make them at home.
Until I had the idea to add spinach. I’ve never seen spinach fruit roll-ups for sale at a store and getting some greens at snack time makes it totally worth the effort.
Not that these are difficult, anyway. Actually, homemade fruit-roll ups are easy. Way easier than I ever imagined. All you have to do is make a simple puree and then put it in the oven. Cut them into strips and you’re done. Three easy steps. You can do this. Remember, you’re going to be giving your child extra greens at snack time! Totally worth it.
The puree was a beautiful green color, but unfortunately once it dried in the oven it turned murky. The taste, however, is fantastic. You don’t taste the spinach at all, but only the tropical flavors of banana and pineapple. You would never guess that they have no sugar added. I hope you have fun with these!
