This recipe is one of my all time favorites. Growing up I was a candy fiend and could never get enough of the gummy, chewy sweets. When I finally decided to cut out sweets and focus on healthier foods, I scoured the Internet in search of healthy ways to get a candy fix and keep my diet on track. Although the conventional, Fruit Roll-Up branded snacks invoke nostalgic memories of grade school cafeteria lunches, I knew the excess sugar and artificial flavors would only worsen my candy cravings!

Luckily, Alvita has provided an easy-to-make, healthy fruit roll-up recipe using their hibiscus tea! These roll-ups are fun to make and customizable depending on your fruit flavor preference. Bake up a batch on Sunday to keep the kid’s (or your own) lunches stocked for the whole week!

Ingredients

1 cup boiling water
2 teabags Alvita Hibiscus Tea
1 cup sliced peaches (frozen is fine)
1 cup strawberries
¼ cup sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Pour the boiling water over the Alvita Hibiscus Tea Bags and let steep for 5 minutes.
  3. In a blender, puree peaches and strawberries.
  4. Pour tea into a saucepan. Add sugar and heat to medium heat until liquid has evaporated by 50%.
  5. Add pureed fruit and lemon juice into tea mixture and continue to cook until the mixture thickens, around 20-30 minutes.
  6. Spread mixture onto a baking sheet lined with either a splat mat or wax paper in a  very thin layer.
  7. Bake for 3 to 4 hours until the mixture is barely sticky anymore.
  8. Let cool for 20 minutes.
  9. Peel off of used wax paper and place on fresh wax paper. Cut into long strips. Roll up for storage or eat immediately.
