  • Surprisingly Better Than Store Bought Fruit Roll-Ups -- And Healthier Too!

    HCG Fruit Roll Ups I remember when I was a kid and my mom would pack Fruit Roll-ups in my lunch every once in awhile - It was always such a delicious and healthy treat ... So I thought.

    After having a couple kids of my own I started paying more attention to labels. That's when I realized that the store bought Fruit Roll-Ups really don't contain much fruit at all. In fact, they contain 2% or less of any Natural Flavors - They actually put it right on the label.

    Unfortunately this means that they are not good to eat while on the HCG Diet. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a tasty Fruit Roll-Up, or Fruit Leather as they are sometimes called. It does mean however, that if you want a delicious yet healthy Fruit Roll-Up you will simply have to make it yourself.

    Honestly, it really is easy to do. Below I have posted a simple to create recipe for Apple Fruit Roll-Ups, aka Apple Fruit Leather.

    Apple Fruit Roll-Ups

    Here's what you'll need:

    4 Cups - Apples (Peeled, Cored and Chopped)
    1 Tablespoon - Lemon Juice
    1 to 2 Tablespoons - Stevia
    1 Teaspoon - Cinnamon
    1/2 Cup - Water

    Directions:

    1. Wash, peel, core and chop apples and place them into a medium saucepan.
    2. Add in the 1/2 cup of water and bring to a simmer.
    3. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes or until soft.
    4. Add Stevia, Cinnamon and Lemon Juice, then mash like you would if you were making mashed potatoes.
    5. Cook approximately 3 more minutes on low heat, stirring occasionally.
    6. Place mixture into a blender and puree until smooth.
    7. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
    8. Pour Apple mixture onto lined baking sheet and spread into a thin layer evenly with a wooden spoon.
    9. Bake at 170 degrees for 2 or 3 hours or until it’s tacky but doesn’t stick to your finger.

    NOTE: I always like to throw in a couple of Strawberries to mix things up a bit.
