Fruit Roll-Up TikTok Trend and Recipe
Updated Wednesday, May 18, 2023
"Fruit Roll-Up TikTok" likely refers to various trends or challenges on TikTok involving Fruit Roll-Ups, a brand of fruit-flavored snacks rolled up.
One popular trend involves people attempting to eat a Fruit Roll-Up as fast as possible without using their hands. This is often used as comedic or competitive content, as participants struggle to eat the sticky, chewy snack using only their mouths.
Another trend, often referred to as the "Fruit Roll-Up Kiss Challenge," involves two participants, each starting to eat from opposite ends of a Fruit Roll-Up until they reach the middle, usually resulting in a kiss, similar to the iconic spaghetti scene from Disney's "Lady and the Tramp."
Here's a simple homemade fruit roll-up recipe. This can be a fun and healthier alternative to the store-bought versions, with natural fruit and no added preservatives.
- 4 cups of diced fresh fruit (berries, apples, peaches, etc.)
- One tablespoon of lemon juice
- Honey or sugar to taste (optional)
Prepare the fruit: Wash and dice your chosen fruit. If you're using fruit like apples or peaches, remove the core or pit before dicing.
Cook the fruit: Place the diced fruit in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook the fruit until it's soft and has released most of its juices. This could take about 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the type of fruit.
Puree the fruit: Transfer the cooked fruit to a blender or food processor. Add the lemon juice and blend until smooth. Taste the puree and add honey or sugar if needed.
Strain the puree (optional): You can strain the puree through a fine mesh sieve to remove any seeds or lumps for a smoother fruit roll-up.
Dehydrate the puree: Preheat your oven to 170°F (75°C) and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Spread the fruit puree evenly onto the mat or paper, about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick.
Bake the puree: Bake in the preheated oven for 3 to 6 hours until the puree is dried and no longer sticky. The baking time will depend on the type of fruit and the thickness of the puree.
Cool and cut the fruit roll-up: Cool the dried fruit entirely before peeling off the silicone mat or parchment paper. Cut it into strips using a pizza cutter or scissors.
Roll up the strips: If desired, use parchment paper to give them the classic fruit roll-up look.
Remember to store your homemade fruit roll-ups in an airtight container to keep them fresh. Enjoy!
