Raspberry Fruit Roll-Ups are a delicious healthy snack made with just fresh raspberries and a touch of honey.
This raspberry fruit leather is perfect for packing into lunches or grabbing a quick snack.
Homemade fruit leather
My raspberry plants are still going strong. I decided to make Raspberry Fruit Roll-Ups - also known as Raspberry Fruit Leather. I always think of fruit roll-ups as a kid's snack, but fruit leather is for anyone! Whatever you call this dried fruit, it's delicious!
I believe I have more recipes with raspberries than anything else right now. I think that happens when you are picking as many raspberries as I am right now!
Don't worry though, you don't need to grow your own raspberries to make any of these amazing recipes - Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake, Raspberry Lemon Muffins, Raspberry Delight, Raspberry Sweet Rolls, Fruit and Veggie Smoothies, Raspberry Lemonade, Raspberry Brownies, Raspberry Scones, Raspberry Swirl and Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream, How to Freeze Raspberries, and of course - How to Prune Raspberries! Whew! That's a lot of raspberry recipes! I wonder what I could possibly be missing.
What ingredients do I need to make raspberry roll-ups?
For these Raspberry Fruit Roll-Ups, I just used fresh raspberries and a little honey. You can use as many berries as you have available and sweeten the berries with as much honey as you'd like.
You could even leave the honey out altogether. I find the berries taste tart if you don't add a bit of honey.
Tips for making fruit leather
The key to success with this dried fruit is to pour the pureed fruit onto the liner rather thick. Once the fruit is dried, and cooled, you can pull the fruit off the liner. I did not spray or add anything to the plastic liner. It came off fairly easy, although it did stick in a few places. The sticky areas were where the puree was a bit thinner than the rest.
I used a dehydrator lined with plastic liners to make these fruit roll-ups. My dehydrator has a temperature gauge. If yours does not allow you to control the temperature, no worries, you may just need to adjust the amount of drying time. I use a Nesco Gardenmaster Food Dehydrator and these Roll Up Liners.

Raspberry Fruit Roll Ups
- 2 Quarts Fresh Raspberries
- 2 Tablespoons Honey
- Place raspberries and honey in a blender. Puree for 30 - 45 seconds until raspberries are smooth.
- Pour puree into a fine mesh sieve. Use a spatula to drain puree and keep seeds behind. Some seeds will slip through the holes of the sieve.
- Pour strained puree onto a plastic liner on top of a dehydrator tray. You want the puree to be as thick as the liner will allow.
- Place trays on dehydrator set to 145 degrees. Run for 5-7 hours until no longer wet or tacky.
- Allow fruit to fully cool. Carefully peel fruit leather off liner.
- Slice fruit leather in half. Place each half on a piece of parchment paper. Roll fruit leather up in parchment paper. Slice rolled fruit leather into 2 inch pieces. Place in an air tight container.
