Dehydrate

LT mokey dehydrating_Use nonstick Paraflexx Sheets for Excalibur dehydrator, parchment paper, or fruit leather (liquid) inserts for your dehydrator.

Pour and smooth out an even coat (or about 1/8inch) of smoothie on the dehydrator trays.

Don’t forget to leave about 1/2 an inch of space from the edge to prevent dripping.

Dehydrate at 135-140degrees for 4-8 hours. Check and rotate trays every 2 hours.

Rotate the trays every 2 hours for a perfectly even dry.

Your fruit leather is done when the sides start to curl up, dried, & the middle is pliable to the touch but not wet.

Let your leathers completely dry before storing.

Storage

If you haven’t eaten all the these fruit leathers in one setting than you can easily store them for later.

Wrapping your leather rolls up in parchment paper will prevent them from sticking to each other. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks, or in the freezer for a couple months.

Remember to label all dehydrated recipes: Name, Date you made it, & Serving Size.
