Dehydrate fruits and veggies to make easy-to-use powders.
Shred, slice, or puree your produce to break it down into the smallest pieces possible. This makes them easier to dehydrate, and easier to process into a powder. Let your produce pieces dehydrate until all water is gone. Some contain oils, so they may appear to still have moisture present.
If you don’t have a dehydrator, turn your oven on the lowest. Buzz the pieces in a coffee grinder for a fine powder.setting and prop the door open to relieve some heat and moisture. These powders have a long shelf life and make it easy to keep your favorite foods around all the time. Mix these powders with any variety of clay (find info on clays in our “Clay Jars” page) to make a face mask. You can also make easy facials or spot treatments using water, juice, milks, yogurts, agave or aloe. Many fruits, veggies, and herbs have hair benefits too, so use them as a hair rinse in the shower. Find tips on using these in our blog. You can also sprinkle these powders into soups and smoothies or on top of pasta or toast. I dehydrated these tomato halves into yummy tomato chips. :)
If you would like to watch the whole 5 minute video on YouTube, I also show an easy way to make extra trays for dehyrating puree. You can find more videos on our videos page.
