Are you looking for a healthier alternative to those fruit snacks that your kids beg and scream for? Try this great recipe for fruit leather (like a Fruit Roll-up) that will make both parents and kids happy! 🙂

Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Leather
Provided by Wildtree from Warwick, RI

1 pint strawberries, diced
6 kiwi, peeled and diced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons Wildtree Strawberry Cheesecake Blend

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes or until fruit is very soft. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. Pass through a strainer to remove any seeds. Preheat oven to the lowest setting, usually between 140-170°F with rack in middle. Line a baking sheet with plastic wrap, a Silpat, or other nonstick baking mat. Pour hot purée onto prepared pan and spread thinly (as evenly as possible) into a rectangle using an offset spatula. Dry purée in oven until it feels dry to the touch, about 6-8 hours. Cool in pan on a rack until completely dry, at least 3 hours and up to 24. Place a sheet of parchment paper over leather, then peel leather off liner and roll up in parchment.
