Fruit Leathers

  • Pineapple leather:
  • 1/2 pineapple, shaved and chopped
  • 15 dried apricots, soaked 4-6 hours
  • 2 kiwi fruits
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds only
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Watermelon leather:
  • 1.5 cups chopped watermelon flesh
  • 1 cup strawberries, de-stalked
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 6 medjool dates, pitted


  1. Blend up all the leather ingredients on high.
  2. Pour the mixture into teflex sheet of your dehydrator and lightly spread it towards the ends, careful not to make the leather too thin, as it could separate during the drying process.
  3. Transfer to the dehydrator and set it for 115degrees F for 10 hours.
  4. Carefully peel off the teflex sheet and transfer your leathers onto mesh sheet with the wet part of the fruit leather facing up.
  5. Leave to dehydrate for another 5 hours.
  6. Cut them into long strips using kitchen scissors and roll into a tube. You can also place a baking sheet on top of the fruit leather before rolling and then secure the tube in place with a string for presentation.


Whenever you purchase dried fruits, like dates or apricots- be sure to read the label for ingredients and make sure they don't have any glazing agents or preservatives added.

Each recipe yields a dehydrator tray worth
