Recipe Wednesday! Mango Fruit Roll-ups

rollupsHere’s a great, healthy snack for kids. These Fruit Roll-ups are easy to make and offer an alkaline alternative to processed and sugar-filled treats.

Ingredients:
3 mangoes, peeled, pitted, and chopped
Honey or agave nectar to taste (if the mangoes you’re using are sweet, you can omit the sweetener altogether)
Cooking oil such as vegetable, canola, sunflower, or sesame oil

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 175 degrees. Lightly grease the bottom of a rimmed baking sheet with oil.
Combine mango pieces and honey or agave nectar (if using) in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth.

Pour fruit mixture onto baking sheet and spread evenly. It’s really important that the mango is an even layer, otherwise some parts will be crispy and others will be uncooked. Cook for 4-5 hours or until fruit is pliable, but not wet. Use a pizza cutter to cut into strips or kitchen scissors to cut into shapes. To store, wrap in parchment paper and seal in a zip-top bag.
