This easy recipe for Homemade Strawberry Fruit Roll Ups is the perfect healthy treat! Made with fresh fruit and honey makes it the perfect after school snack!
I absolutely adore this strawberry fruit roll up recipe, but most important of all… So does my five year old!
Making homemade fruit roll ups has been on my foodie bucket list for ages. They are so incredibly easy to make and so easy to customize!
We have already made strawberry, mango, and blueberry and I see many more flavors in our future! Let’s walk through the basics:
How to make homemade fruit roll ups:
Start with quality ingredients. You want super ripe fruit so you have to add less sweetener. These strawberries were large, deep red, and super sweet! Perfect for our recipe.
The rest is easy as pie.
- Blend or process the fruit.
- Add sweeteners, like honey, as needed.
- And low bake for a few hours until the fruit is slightly tacky and dry.
- Check on it occasionally and try not to devour them all in one sitting.
I am always surprised at the power of my Blendtec.
I put all of the ingredients into the blender cup and literally turned it on for one minute. ONE MINUTE is all it took to puree the berries and incorporate the remaining ingredients. I love this machine.
I attached mine to strips of cut parchment and stuck them in the freezer. Whenever I pack a lunch or picnic I simply pull them out and add them to the bag.
I like to bust these out whenever I’m rewarding my little guy for good behavior. The added honey makes these a sweet treat and the strawberries give him a good dose of vitamin C. He thinks he is getting the good stuff and I feel better about sneaking him an extra or two.

- 3-4 cups fresh strawberries, trimmed
- 1 tablespoon honey, or more
- 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract, optional
- Line a small baking tray with plastic wrap so it hangs over the edge a bit. Preheat your oven to it’s lowest setting.
- Puree all of your ingredients in your Blendtec or blender until combined. Spread into an even layer on your prepared pan.
- Bake 6-8 hours or until your fruit is no longer sticky to the touch. I start checking mine around hour 4. Slice and roll.
