strawberry rollups

Ditch the store-bought varieties in favour of this recipe!

Strawberry rollups really couldn't be any easier to make. All it takes is 2 ingredients and a few minutes of prep to turn out a better version of one of your favourite childhood snacks. It doesn’t matter if you’re a kid or a grown up, you’re going to luv them. These healthy homemade strawberry roll ups are basically just pureed and dehydrated fruit – there’s no artificial colours, flavours, corn syrup or any other weird ingredients. And bonus, apart from dehydrating fresh strawberries straight up, rollups are a great way to preserve all those fresh summer strawberries.

Technically you could make strawberry rollups with just one ingredient…100% strawberries, because if the puree isn’t too tart, you can skip adding sweetener altogether. The type of sweetener and the amount is a personal preference, so adjust it to your liking.

Adding lemon juice is also optional. In theory, the acid helps to prevent the fruit darkening over time but we doubt these yummy rollups will last long enough to need it. We made a batch with and without adding lemon juice and it made no noticeable difference. 

You can use frozen strawberries for this recipe, just make sure to thaw them and remove all excess water before processing.
