My girls have always loved fruit roll ups! One day while at the super market, I pulled a box off the shelf to look at the ingredients and my mouth about hit the floor! Just take a look at what is in the supermarket version of fruit roll ups.

- 1½-2 pounds of fresh organic strawberries, hulled and cleaned

- Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend for 1 minute or until well blended.

- Line a 11?x17? jelly roll pan with greased (i used coconut oil) parchment paper.
- Pour the mixture onto the parchment paper leaving a ½ inch of parchment paper on all sides.
- Spread to ⅛?-1/4? thick, you don’t want to get it to thin or you might have a hard time peeling it off the parchment paper.

- With scissors, cut into 6 rectangles, leaving the excess parchment paper for easy peeling.
- Roll up and tie with a piece of string.
