Making your own homemade Peach Fruit Leather is so easy! Get out your dehydrator and make this delicious and healthy snack!
My kids love fruit leather. And I love that they are getting extra fruit in.
Making fruit leather can be a great way to use overly ripe fruit, or fruit that’s blemished. This peach fruit leather is a great way to capture the taste of summer to enjoy throughout the winter.
I make fruit leather with no added sweeteners, just the deliciousness of real fruit, so it is a healthy option for a snack.
If you prefer your fruit leather to be a bit sweeter, you can add half a sweet apple to the food processor with your peaches. A banana is another great idea for adding sweetness, but it does add some banana flavor, whereas the apple flavor is overpowered by the peaches.
This peach fruit leather is easiest made using silicone trays in your dehydrator. These trays have a lip, making it easier to make a thick fruit leather without having a huge mess. They’ve made fruit leather making so much easier for me.
If you don’t have silicone trays for your dehydrator, you can still make fruit leather. Just line your dehydrator trays with parchment paper or saran wrap, and spoon the peach fruit leather puree on the surface, being sure not to put it too close to the edge. You won’t be able to get your fruit leather as thick, so it will dry faster and be a bit more crisp than if you use the silicone trays.
Have you made fruit leather before? What are some of your favorite flavors? Are there other dehydrating recipes you’d like me to share?
- 8 Peaches, skinned and pitted
- 2 tsp. fruit fresh (optional)
- 1/2 an Apple, if desired (see note)
- Puree peaches with fruit fresh and apple (if desired).
- Pour into silicone trays (the trays I use are linked in the post and below this recipe).
- Dehydrate at 135º until no longer tacky **(See Notes)
- Cut and roll to desired size.
- Store in an air tight container.
**If you desire a sweeter fruit leather, add half a sweet apple when blending the peaches (gala, honeycrisp, fuji, etc)
**Dehydration time depends on a lot of factors (moisture in fruits, humidity, and your dehydrator). Mine took about 6 hours, but yours may take more or less time.
