Creativity in making fruit leathers

Here are a variety of things you can do with fruit leathers: 

These suggestions come from the University of Utah Cooperative Extension Service.

  • Different fruits can be blended together.
  • Seasonings such as
    • cinnamon can be added
    • or powdered drink mixes or
    • Flavored gelatin products.
    • Season to taste, but remember it will be more concentrated when the water has been removed.
  • Add undiluted, thawed frozen juice concentrates to add flavor.
  • Sprinkle puree with
    • shredded coconut
    • chopped dates
    • other dried chopped fruit
    • granola
    • miniature marshmallows
    • chopped nuts
    • chopped raisins
    • poppy seeds
    • sesame seeds
    • sunflower seeds
  • Make a fruit leather, then lightly frost it with cream cheese. Roll it up and slice it for a pinwheel effect.
  • Applesauce makes a convenient leather base to which other flavors may be added. One example is Christmas Leather. Grape juice, orange, and berry frozen concentrates are possible variations.
