How to Dehydrate Kiwi:

Dehydrated kiwi chips are always great to have on hand! Eat them as is for a sweet on-the-go snack that won’t spoil, put them in yogurt for a healthier sweet alternative to sugar, or blend into a powder to use in smoothies, baked desserts, or protein shakes!

Kiwi chips are a healthy and simple to make snack with no preservatives. They have at least 50% less calories than a small bag of fruit snacks, and are much more filling. They are lightweight and compact and easy to bring to the gym! They can also be used to make infused water! They will last many years if stored properly. Store in a jar with oxygen pack, or vacuum sealed bag. Keep out of direct sunlight.

Instructions:

  • Use a potato or fruit peeler to peel the kiwis
  • Horizontally slice into 1/4 thick slices.
  • Evenly spread on your dehydrator tray.
  • Coat evenly with a thin coat of lemon juice. For ease, hold the tray over the sink and use a lemon juice bottle with spray cap. 
  • Dehydrate at 125 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 hours.
  • Store in a vacuum and Mylar bag for later use in recipes, or eat as is!

Dryness Check:

A properly dehydrated kiwi chip will “click” when dropped on the table, and should feel dry and not sticky to the touch. They will also be somewhat malleable and can be torn in half but not crumbled. If yours do not feel this way, just put them back in the dehydrator for a few more hours!

Other Tips:

You can sprinkle a little sugar on top before dehydrating too for a sweet snack!
