Pineapple and Yogurt Drops

Rating: ****

For our dehydration project we made yogurt drops and dehydrated pineapple.

Yogurt drops are a great opportunity to get dairy products on long trips. Fresh milk is hard to transport but those yogurt drops give you all the nutrients you would get from milk, they are easy to carry, and they make a delicious snack. You could put anything in the yogurt before dehydrating it: dried fruit chunks to get the vitamins and carbs of fruits, nuts and seeds to get protein, oatmeal to get carbohydrates and fibre, chocolate chips or anything else you would like in them!

Pineapple becomes really sweet and it gets a delicious taste after dehydrating. It is a simple way to get fruit on trips, and it makes a healthy snack you could enjoy anytime.

In our opinion this is a great recipe which is easy to modify for your personal needs and preferences.

Recipes – Pineapple


· ½ inch pieces of pineapple


1. Place the pineapple pieces spaced evenly on the dehydrator tray. You can also place other types of fruit on the tray with the pineapple. Fruit dries well at 135 degrees, but drying time of fruit varies.
2. Turn on the Dehydrator, set at 135 degrees Fahrenheit for 6 to 16 hours. Check the consistency of the fruit throughout the dehydrating process. If the inside of the pineapple is free of significant moisture, drying is complete. Drying time is affected by the size of fruit pieces and how many are in the dehydrator at once.

Recipes – Yogurt Drops

· ½ cup of yogurt
· 1 tsp. of cinnamon
· 1 ½ tbs. of whole grain oats


1. Put all ingredients in a bowl. Mix well.
2. Spoon the yogurt in very small portions (1/4 tsp.) in little dollops on a
fruit leather sheet.
3. Dehydrate overnight at 135 degrees.

Make sure your food does not
stay in the dehydrator for too long; otherwise it will be very dry and burned.
(That’s what happened to our pineapple as well as the yogurt drops.)
And as already mentioned: Try out some recipe modifications!
