Green Blueberry Fruit Roll-Ups

We have all heard of green smoothies, which I have to admit that I have been chicken to try! πŸ™‚ But, what about green fruit roll-ups?!

There were some blueberries in the fridge that needed to be eaten up, so my original plan was just to make plain blueberry ones. But, no! My experimental and creative side couldn’t leave it at that! πŸ™‚ And I just happened to recall how we always keep kale on hand…. πŸ˜‰

The taste was amazing! Truly! What a wonderful way to get more vegetables in your diet! Seriously parents, your children would never know there were any vegetables in these roll-ups!

Okay friends, I am definitely ready for some green smoothies now! πŸ˜€

Unfortunately, I didn’t do as goodΒ of a job making sure I spread the puree out as evenly and thinly as I did on my strawberry lemonade and basil ones,Β so the consistency on a lot of them didn’t come out as I would have liked. It was one of those learning experiences….you need to make sure it is even and thin or else they won’t dry out enough.

Green Blueberry Fruit Roll-Ups

*Created by Lori at Creating Beauty in the Kitchen

Ingredients:

  • 18 ounces of blueberries
  • 3 hand sized pieces of kale
  • 1/4-1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 tsp pure almond extract

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (I decided to try these at a higher temperature than I cooked my other ones.)
  • Wash and puree the blueberries, adding in the kale, honey and almond extract.
  • Cover a baking sheet with some parchment paper.
  • Pour the pureed fruit mixture out onto the paper as evenly as you can. You also want to make sure it is pretty thin.
  • Let bake for 6 hours (start checking at the 5 hour mark.)
  • Take out of the oven and let cool. Once cooled you can use kitchen shears to cut them into the size and length you want.
  • Roll them up and put some ribbon around them.
  • When you are ready to eat them they should easily peel off the parchment paper.

I hope some of you will try to make “green roll-ups!” Really, really, really delicious!

    • It really was amazing Vidya! Great way to eat some extra vegetables! πŸ™‚ You basically want to make sure that it no longer feels sticky. I also kind of check and see if it will pull up easily from the parchment paper. If it is still sticking then they still need to cook.

      • Hey Joanna-
        Was wondering if you would at all be interested in doing a guest post for me? I will be away from the computer for a couple weeks and am trying to cook ahead of time, but it would be nice to have some guest posts as well. The only problem is that I would need the recipe and pics emailed to me by this Sunday so I can preschedule the guest post for sometime in the next couple weeks. I know that’s last notice, so no pressure if you can’t do this! Just let me know!

      • Uummm, I would love to. Do you have anything specific in mind? Does it need to be low glycemic?

      • Nothing in particular in mind..yes, low glycemic. If u need any help figuring out what is or isn’t, I could help with that. Again, no pressure though….I know this is last minute

      • I am not going to be able to do a guest post for you, Lori. I’m sorry. I am just up to my eyeballs with camp stuff right now. My ankles and feet are about 3 times the size they normally are from being on them so much and I still have to be on them most of the day tomorrow. But please keep me in mind for another time, I would love to do one for you, I just can’t right now. Thank you for thinking of me, though! πŸ™‚
