Healthy Fruit Leather

Print Friendly

Berries are the healthiest of fruits and this recipe can be especially useful for birds (like my umbrella cockatoo) who won’t eat their berries!


2 cups fresh or frozen berries

2 Tbsp chia seeds

1 small piece of ginger (optional, but my birds love ginger!)


Puree the berries and ginger. Mix in chia seeds and allow to sit for 30 minutes so the mixture will thicken. Line dehydrator trays with parchment paper and spread the mixture very thin onto the parchment paper. Dehydrate for 6-12 hours. Cut the fruit leather into small birdie sized pieces or get creative and cut it into strips, roll it up, and secure it with string, raffia or a toothpick.
