A DIY meal designed to fuel you on the mountain without sacrificing quality ingredients.

ESTIMATED TIME:

30 MINUTES OF PREP. 6 – 10 HOURS OF DEHYDRATION.

ESTIMATED SERVINGS:
5 – 6

EQUIPMENT NEEDED:

· Parchment paper (cut to size of dehydrator trays)
· Blender
· Spatula
· MEAT! 10-Tray Dehydrator
· MEAT! Vacuum Sealer
· MEAT! Vacuum Sealer Bags
· MEAT! Dry Good Digital Scale

INGREDIENTS
Strawberry Banana Mix
· 4 cups strawberries
· 2 peeled bananas
· 1/4 cup of honey
Berry Mix
· 2 cups blueberries
· 2 cups raspberries
· 1/4 cup chia seeds
· 1/4 cup of honey
· 5-6 Dates

Directions:

MAKE YOUR PASTE:

FOR STRAWBERRY BANANA: Combine strawberries, bananas, and honey into blender. Lightly blend. The goal is to get a mixture that is a thick paste.
Add paste to skillet and cook on a stove top on medium heat. Bring mixture to a low simmer (this will help evaporate some water out of the fruit).

FOR MIXED BERRY: Combine blueberries, raspberries, chia seeds, dates, and honey into blender. Lightly blend. The goal is to get a mixture that is a thick paste.
Add paste to skillet and cook on a stove top on medium heat. Bring mixture to a low simmer (this will help evaporate some water out of the fruit).

DEHYDRATING:
Add mixtures to parchment paper.
With a spatula, spread the fruit mixture out evenly onto parchment paper. We recommend about 1/8th – 1/4th inch thick.
Dehydrate 6 – 10 hours at 120 – 140°F. The fruit leather should be pliable and chewy. (You can dehydrate at higher temps to speed up process but the higher the temp the less consistent the end product becomes.)

SEALING:
Keep fruit leather on parchment paper. Cut into individual servings and add to MEAT! Vacuum Sealer Bag.
(Optional) Add food safe silicon bag; this helps capture any unwanted moisture.
Seal with MEAT! Vacuum Sealer.
