Mango Fruit Rolls


With the weather warming up, I’m happy to see more of my favorite fruits come into season.

We’ve been enjoying very sweet mangoes, and I used some to make more easy homemade fruit leather. The mango version is my favorite version yet.

Because the mango puree is thick, the fruit leather comes out a little thicker. My mangoes were so sweet that I didn’t need to add any sugar to the mixture. I waited until they were very ripe, so that I was able to easily scoop out the fruit after peeling back the skin.

I love how easy fruit leather is to make and gift to friends. I need to start making fruit ice pops again soon too.

Mango Fruit Leather

Ingredients:

6 cups of ripe mangoes
sugar to taste if needed

Directions:

1. Blend fruit and sugar (if using) in blender until smooth. The mango pulp will make the puree thick. That's okay.
2. Set oven at lowest temperature setting (mine was at 170 F). Line two 13 x 18 baking sheet with Silpat mats.
3. Pour fruit mixture onto silpat mats and spread with the back of a large spoon until the fruit mixture makes a sheet about a 1/8 inch thick across the surface of the silpat.
4. Place baking sheets in the oven and bake for 6-8 hours, until fruit is dry. When you touch it, it should be still a little sticky, but it should be set and solid (not wet) like fruit leather.
5. Let fruit leather cool. Once it is finished cooling, gently peel off the fruit leather from the Silpat. It should come off the mat easily. Cut small pieces of parchment paper (to desired length and width of fruit leather strips you want), then cut fruit leather to slightly under the size of the parchment paper. Place onto parchment paper and roll together. Tie with a string to hold the roll. Repeat with rest of fruit leather. Store in airtight container in a cool space.

  1. yes Yes YES!
    Do I have to bake it on silpat mat?
    Flat oven pan wont work ?

  2. Ill have to check for silpat mats at Target.

  3. I’ve never thought of mango fruit rolls, I’ll have to try these!
    To lilkunta, I’ve made fruit rolls before and I don’t have a silpat. I just spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and they work fine. Just watch the edges to make sure they don’t get too brown.

  4. ALYSSA: thank you! because the silpat mats were expensive!
    Do I still cook for 6-8 hours at 170 degrees? or do I need to modify cooking time/temp bc Im baking on the metal tray ?

  5. I learned the technique here: https://ohmyveggies.com/make-your-own-strawberry-banana-fruit-leather/

    You still cook at the same temp, but the time depends on how thick the layer of puree is. You just have to watch it. I use a larger baking sheet so I get thinner rolls and they take less time. I haven’t tried this particular recipe yet, so I can’t say for sure.

    Hope this helps!

  6. thank you alyssa. aldi is having a sale, 16oz strawberries for $1.39 so this week so I want to make this. I hope Im not tired come friday night.

  7. I have a ton of blackberries and mango. Do you have any idea how they’d go together in a fruit leather and what ratio I should use?

    • Sorry, I don’t know. My suggestion is that you start small, put it into a blender and taste it. Then keep adding or adjusting as needed. The blended mixture will taste like the final product so you should know based on how your blended mixture is tasting, on how it will turn out. Good luck!
