Strawberry Banana Fruit Leather
I made this weeks ago, before getting into the full swing of things with the apple party. It was so hard not sharing them right away, not only because it’s so hard to sit on recipes for too long but also because I have this intense obsession with kid food and really just had to share it with you.
My new love is fruit leather. It’s insanely easy and gives delicious results every time. The possibilities are seriously endless. It all started out with cherry fruit leather and then came apple cinnamon. Truly, I don’t think I’ll ever find one that wows me more than the apple cinnamon. I just love apples too much. But these were right up there. The kids adore strawberries and bananas so it was a win-win.
My fruit was going bad, because for whatever reason sometimes it seems to go bad in the blink of an eye. I didn’t want to toss it and I haven’t convinced myself to try freezing fruit for smoothies yet. I promise I’ll get to that eventually. I just need a way to ease into it. Or maybe a giant shove. I’m not sure which would be better.
So anyway… in came this fruit leather. It’s intensely banana flavored with hints of strawberries. You’d think it’s the other way around and it totally could be, just add more strawberry and less banana. I think I’d loved it more if that were the case as I’m not a huge banana fan.
These seemed totally fitting to share on Gina’s site … Ms healthy, cross-fit lady. I wanted to fry something and turn her online home upside down, just for fun, but instead I behaved and shared these. They’re totally fitting.
