  • 3 cups of frozen or fresh fruit
  • ½ cup water
  • 1-2 Tbsp sugar optional


  • *I used frozen fruit to make my fruit leather but you can use fresh as well.
  • Preheat your oven to 170 - 200 degrees. Basically the lowest temperature your oven will go. Line a baking sheet (or jelly roll pan – it has to have sides) with parchment paper.
  • Place 3 cups of mixed berry fruit (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries) in a medium pot. Add ½ cup of water. On medium, heat the fruit for 5-7 minutes until it is soft and mushy. You can add sugar to taste if you would like. I did not think it needed it. Remove from heat.
  • With an immersion blender, food processor or blender (I used the Vitamix), pulse the fruit mixture until blended into a liquid.
  • Pour the fruit liquid into your prepared baking pan. Spread to all the sides.
  • Cook the fruit in the oven for 6-8 hours. You will know it is done when the center is dried out. If the center is still wet, keep it in the oven.
  • Once the fruit is completely dry, remove from oven and let cool completely. Tear or cut strips or shapes out of the leather. Enjoy.
