Place 2-3 cups fresh or frozen fruit chunks in food processor (S blade) or high-powered blender. A combination of cranberries, strawberries, and apple works nicely. Process until a smooth consistency. (Shortcut option: Use store-bought unsweetened organic applesauce.)
Add spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger) to taste and blend.
You can create your own fruit snacks by dehydrating your favorite fruit.
A dehydrator is optimal for this process, but you can turn your oven into a makeshift dehydrator by setting it on its lowest temperature, propping open the oven door, and directing a fan into the oven.
The following fruits lend themselves well to the drying process. Allow 6-12 hours for drying, depending on your method.
Blend in food processor or high-powered blender:
- 1 red pepper
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/2 onion
- Beet greens, carrot greens, or any greens of choice (a couple of handfuls)
- 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
Add a small amount of water if needed to make a nice "paste" or "sauce."
