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.

Strawberry Fruit Roll Up Recipe
- 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.

How hot is the oven? How can you put plastic wrap in the oven and not have it melt?
Hi Becky, the lowest setting on our oven is 175 degrees. The plastic wrap should not melt at temperatures below 220F-250F. You can opt for a silicone baking mat if it’s something that makes you feel more comfortable. I own several and they are amazing baking tools.
I tend to have trouble pulling the fruit leather off the parchment/wax paper/plastic wrap. My hubby suggested using food grade cellophane and I love it! Comes right off with out ripping, stretching or having to spray it with water.
Also, I like to dry mine in the sun with a little cheese cloth stretched tight above it. I find my oven is too hot to dry it out before it starts baking (Lowest temp is 200F).
I love that tip! Thank you, Melanie!
Yum! The kids & I loved making these! We added some blueberries & used vanilla extract as didn’t have coconut. Had similar reservations about cling film in the oven but worked perfectly. Do you think these could be done in the slow cooker?
What tempature do you put the oven at??
The lowest temperature yours will go to. Mine is 170 degrees.
How many does one batch make. I would like to make these for my moppets as an alternative to something unhealthy.
I had the same question as above about plastic wrap. On the original post she links to it addresses this, so if you’re confused, check that out. Looks great! Can’t wait to try it out on daycare kids! 🙂

I’m confused, do you pour it on parchment paper or on Plastic wrap and if its plastic wrap, doesnt it melt?
I’m wondering the same, I’m confused by the plastic wrap…
@brandie, when you cook you pour it on the plastic. It does not melt. To store and keep it from sticking together you use parchment.
I’ll remake this recipe this week and try to create a video to explain the process a tad better. thanks for your comment.
These look amazing! The plastic wrap is ok to put in the oven? I would think that wouldn’t work, so can you please clarify? Thanks!
Maybe try parchment paper instead?
Girlfriend I am LOVING all the healthy recipes from you!!!!! HOLLA BACK! This is another one that’s been on my list as well to make. I attempted it after our juice fast in our dehydrator and it was an epic fail. I need to try again! Beautiful photos too 🙂
Try it in the oven! So tasty and a great way to sneak in something sweet without breaking a diet!
