7 fruit leathers


  • 3 large ripe mangoes, peeled and flesh cut away from the pit

  • ½ cup water

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees 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 1/8 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
