RATE: ****
We gave this recipe 4 out of 5 stars. It is easy to make and healthy too! It was surprisingly very tasty. The honey we added gave it a great flavor along with the sweetness of the pineapple juice. The recipe of the smoothie was quick and easy to make though the dehydration process was very long. Overall a recipe we would highly recommend.
  • As we were making the smoothie, we found it needed more juice. About an extra ½ cup is all.
  • We realised that the thinner you poor the smoothie onto the sheet, the faster it dehydrates.
  • Some of our circles of the fruit roll up turned out bumpy and not smooth. We know for next time to smooth them out with a spoon before dehydrating them.
  • The recipe called to dehydrate the fruit roll ups for 6 hours but most likely because we didn’t make ours thin enough; we left them in an extra hour.
  • Healthy homemade fruit smoothies. 2012. June 14th 2012.
