Mmm… Homemade fruit leather. One of our favourite treats! I’ll admit that it took me a while to delve into the world of making our own at first, but once I realized that it doesn’t require any special equipment and it’s pretty much as easy as making a fruit sauce, I was hooked. It’s a great way to use up overripe fruit and it makes for a perfect sugary fruit snack alternative in lunch boxes too!
With Miss G starting Kindergarten this past week, we recently whipped up a fresh new flavour combination – apple pear squash fruit leather! The great thing is that because it’s so sweet and chewy and treat-like, you can get away with sneaky all kinds of things in… squash, carrots, beets, and spinach included! I promise you little ones will have no idea so long as you don’t tell them. ☺
