Raise your hand if fruit roll-ups made a regular appearance in your lunch box or on your afternoon snack plate as a kid.
Even as an adult, it’s hard to resist the sweetness of a classic fruit roll-up, but as we grow and become more cognizant of the foods we eat, we quickly discover all the not-so-healthy ingredients in this nostalgic treat that make it taste so good!
It’s not all doom and gloom though because berries are ripe and in-season in Heinen’s Produce Department and can be used to add color, natural sweetness and nutrients to these better-for-you homemade fruit roll-ups that require only five minutes of active work in the kitchen.
Made from a puree of fresh strawberries, raspberries, honey and lime juice and dehydrated in the oven to create the tacky texture of a traditional store-bought fruit roll-up, this refreshing twist on a fan-favorite snack will quickly become your family’s new lunchbox staple!
