Blueberry & Flower Fruit Leather Recipe
(Gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, grain-free, egg-free)
As a mom to a little one I am constantly looking for ways to naturally boost Mila’s immune system – especially now that she is at playschool and being introduced to new bugs everyday it seems.
I also had to find a creative way to introduce foods which would alleviate constipation – Mila is prone to constipation – due to food intolerances and gut dysbiosis inherited from me. So besides removing the foods that cause constipation (such as grains, corn, gluten and dairy) I had to find a way introduce pectin, beetroot and various herbal teas known for their laxative effect – not to mention vegetables (which Mila refuses to eat simply because they are vegetables)… hello Fruit Leather! Oh, this has come to my rescue everyday for 2 years now!
The recipe for fruit leather in my book, Mila’s Meals: The Beginning & The Basics, is more of a formula for making fruit leather since it is so versatile and can be made with a variety of fruits and vegetables. I developed the recipe below specifically for use with Carmien Tea’s Vintage Romance Flower Tea as part of my guest blogging for them – and it’s a winner (or “thumbs up” as Mila would say!)
