How to Dehydrate Strawberries:

Dehydrated strawberries 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 cereal or yogurt for a healthier sweet alternative to sugar, or blend into a powder to use in smoothies, baked desserts, or protein shakes! They can also be used to make infused water! They are light weight and will last many years if stored properly. Store in a jar with oxygen pack, or vacuum sealed bag. Keep out of direct sunlight.


  • Rinse strawberries with water and pat dry
  • Horizontally slice into 1/4 thick slices.
  • Evenly spread on your dehydrator tray.
  • Dehydrate at 125 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-14 hours.
  • Store in a vacuum and Mylar bag for later use in recipes, or eat as is!

Dryness Check:

A properly dehydrated strawberry will “click” when dropped on the table, and should feel dry and not sticky to the touch. They will also be somewhat malleable but 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!
