Dehydrated Yogurt

To make dehydrated yogurt all you need is:

• Yogurt – your choice in flavour but it needs to be fatty, no fat free stuff, try for 12g if you can
• Parchment paper

Oven: All you do is lay out the parchment paper on a baking sheet and coat it evenly with yogurt, about 5mm thick. Then place in the oven on lowest temperature (about 170 degrees) for 6 to 8 hours, with a dish cloth placed in the door to keep it open. This allows for moisture to escape, and this way you don’t cook the yogurt. It is done when it feels sticky.

Dehydrator: Same thing but cut the parchment paper into squares and place on racks then spread spoonfuls of the yogurt onto the paper.

I love dehydrated yogurt, it tastes very sweet, more like a candy. I thought it turned out really well for my first time, just remember the parchment paper! I would buy a dehydrated just for this, and I actually might.


  1. Can you tell me how long it takes in the dehydrator? What do you do to make it flavored?

  2. I searched several sites but could not find any amount of time. I would say about the same as the oven, 6-8 hours. You just have to buy flavoured yogurt! :) Hope this helps and sorry it’s so late!
