DIY: Fruit Roll-Up

DIY, Recipes

This yummy found recipe is perfect for after school snacks! It’s more healthy than the store bought fruit snacks (and tastier) with more fiber & vitamin C and less sugar & additives.

Ingredients
3 cups blackberries
1/4 cup mint leaves (optional)
1/4 cup honey
Finely grated rind of 1 lime
2 tablespoons lime juice
Parchment paper

Instructions
Preheat oven to 170F.

Place blackberries, mint leaves, honey, lime rind and lime juice in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth, about 30 seconds. (If you are not a fan of seeds, strain the purée as best as you can.)

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour purée onto paper and spread thickly and evenly with a spatula (I tapped the baking sheet to get the purée evenly). Bake 6 hours, or until no longer wet.

With scissors, cut paper in half. Roll halves into a cigar shape. Cut rolls into 2-inch segments and serve. Store in an airtight container. Makes 12 (2 x 6-inch) strips.

DIY: Friendship Bracelet

DIY

When I was younger, I always tried to make friendship bracelets with really thin thread, instructions that were really hard to follow & I’d get frustrated so I’d never finish them! I found an easier way to make friendship bracelets that is much faster & doesn’t have crazy complicated instructions! The best part about this friendship bracelet design is that if you mess up, it’s easy to re-do.

Enjoy!
