Prickly Pear Fruit Leathers with Chia Crunchies

I was waiting to post this until I had my demo video ready (that my son and I did together) but this recipe seems to be in high demand. It was a huge hit at our last SUCCULENT RAW TUCSON POTLUCK. Soooo… here it is! Video coming soon.

Prickly Pear Fruit Leathers with Chia Crunchies Recipe

Note: Almost any fruit juice will work in place of the prickly pear juice.

8 Pears, cored and sliced in half but not peeled
2 apples, cored and sliced in half but not peeled
1 banana, peeled and sliced in half
1/2 cup freshly juiced prickly pear
4 TBSP chia seeds
Dash of Mineral Salt

Buzz all ingredients in a high speed blender until soupy. Add chia seeds and let sit until they start to gel and thicken. Use more chia if mixture stays too soupy to be spreadable. Add more juice if it gets too thick.

Spread on Teflex liner sheets (about 4) and dehydrate until desired texture (chewiness), flipping once. Then, cut into desired shapes with knife or cookie cutter. Store in airtight container. Yum! Yum! Yum!

    Are you referring to Anjou pears or Prickly pears ?

    Also…can I use something other than chia to thicken ?
