Dehydration - Pineapple &Yogurt Drops

Rating: ****
Excellent, I would make this at home. I find it would make a perfect snack while on trip. The pineapple is a delicious and sweet treat and the yogurt drops with grains is a very healthy choice.

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 tat once.

Recipes – Yogurt Drops
· ½ cup of yogurt
· 1 tsp. of cinnamon
· 1 ½ tbs. of grains
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.

Tips: For our dehydration project, we left the pineapple and yogurt in the dehydrator for too long. Doing so made them both too dry. If we would have not left it on for so long, the pineapple would have probably had an even sweeter taste and the yogurt would not have been so dried out.
