Homemade fruit leather is easy to make in a variety of fun flavors thanks to Mott’s® Snack & Go! All you need is Mott’s® Snack & Go pouches and a baking sheet to make a healthy snack your kids will love!
Finding healthy snacks that my kids will eat is difficult. My daughter recently brought home an essay she wrote at school about the “helfy” foods we are now eating. She is not happy about the changes we’ve been making to our diet. The kids have always been allowed to eat as many fruits and vegetables as they like. If they had their way, though, snacks would include cheese crackers shaped like fish, pretzels, many lollipops, and as much chocolate as they could find. But since we’re limiting the wheat eat, we’re having to be creative with snacks.
My kids actually really love fruit, but it can get boring especially in the winter when there isn’t much to choose from. I have always wanted to try making homemade fruit leather because my husband and kids just love it. The fun flavors of Mott’s® Snack & Go provided a way to make fun healthy snack. Plus with a buy one get one coupon available for Mott’s, you can stock up for lots of snacks!
I spread out a pouch of Mott’s® Snack & Go Mango Peach on a small baking sheet covered with parchment paper. I tried to get it thin, but not too thin!
I baked it in my toaster oven on the lowest temperature (around 150 degrees) for 2 hours. It looked and felt done so I took it out and let it cool on a cooling rack. After it had cooled I noticed that the middle was a bit wet still so I’d give it another hour or so next time. Just keep checking on it and remove it from the oven once it’s all dry.
When it was cooled, I cut the sheet in to strips. My kids couldn’t believe I’d made fruit leather! My daughter made sure to let me know she wanted some homemade fruit leather in her lunch all week!
