    I am going to try this but will leave out the sugar to make this healthier. My kids love berry smoothies and fruit roll ups with no added sugar.

    Can this be made with other fruits? There is only a handful of fresh fruits I can get my son to eat because he has issues with food textures. It would be great if I could turn some of those other fruits into snacks that he wouldn’t have an issue with textures. Smoothies are great, but aren’t always portable.

    what did you use to cut up the fruit?


  • Jon

    Just use Splenda instead of sugar


  • Kelli

    Can these be stored at room temperature after they’ve set?
