Last week while shopping at Sam’s Club they had huge things of strawberries for just $4.98! I was craving strawberries at the time and couldn’t resist buying it! Problem is I couldn’t get them eaten fast enough before they started to go soft. So today I had a half container full of strawberries (about a pound) that needed to be used up! I really hate to throw out food because I am completely a bargain hunting thrift person! (If that is even a thing lol! 🙂 )So… I decided to make DIY Strawberry Fruit Roll ups!
We have a two hour car ride of a trip coming up tomorrow and I thought these would be perfect to take along as snacks! If you have ever read the package on Fruit Roll Ups you can purchase in the store you will be horrified to read of all the horrible non-natural ingredients that go in them! I could definitely not feed my children those!
The best part about these is how simple it is to make! You simply just blend, heat, and then place in the oven and come back after several hours!
