This recipe is created using a food dehydrator. Not familiar with a dehydrator? By removing all the moisture, a food dehydrator allows you to dry out and preserve specific food items, including fruit. For this Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Leather recipe, all ingredients are combined in a blender until smooth and placed in the dehydrator to begin “drying” out the ingredients. Be sure to line the dehydrator tray with parchment paper so that your Strawberry Fruit Leather is easy to roll when finished. The end result is delicious fruit roll-ups that can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container until ready to be enjoyed.
