“This no-sugar-added fruit snack is a healthy treat kids and adults will both love. It's perfect for packing in a lunchbox for school or work or just enjoying as a snack or better-for-you dessert at home.”

Ingredients

    • 3 large ripe mangoes, peeled and flesh cut away from the pit
    • ½ cup water
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 200°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with a nonstick baking mat.
  • 2 Puree mangoes, water and lemon juice in a blender until smooth. Pour into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, partially covered, until reduced to about 2 cups puree, about 20 minutes.
  • 3 Pour the puree onto the prepared baking sheet. With a rubber spatula, very evenly spread into a thin rectangle, no thicker than ⅛ inch thick.
  • 4 Bake until dry to the touch, 4 to 6 hours. Let cool completely.
  • 5 Transfer the fruit leather to a piece of parchment paper (or wax paper) about the same size. Leaving the parchment underneath, roll the fruit leather closed into a long cylinder. Using a sharp knife or scissors, cut into 2-inch wide strips.
  • To make ahead: Store airtight for up to 1 week.
