Do you remember fruit roll ups? Well these Cranberry Fruit Leathers are just like those but YOU control the ingredients. Processed fruit snacks can be loaded with sugar, colors and dyes, and ingredients you’re not even sure what they are! With homemade fruit leathers you use real ingredients and real fruit!

4. Pour cranberry mixture into a blender and puree until smooth.
