Dehydrated (Non-Dairy) Yogurt Drops
I read recently that yogurt can be dehydrated into bite-size snacks. I was curious as to how this would work with my dairy-allergic son’s yogurt, So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt. I gave it a shot and they came out delicious! They taste just like yogurt, except in a portable, bite-size snack. He ate the whole tray as soon as they came out of the dehydrator.
1 container of So Delicious Coconut Yogurt, any flavor (I have not tried soy yogurt, but it may work too)
- Set up your food dehydrator with a fruit leather tray (you can use a sheet of parchment paper as well).
- Spray a paper towel with non-stick cooking spray. Rub the paper towel on the fruit leather sheet. You just need a very thin layer of cooking spray.
- Scoop the yogurt in very small portions (1/4 teaspoon works fine) in little dollops on the fruit leather sheet.
- Dehydrate overnight at 135 degrees.
Coconut is technically classified as a tree nut by the FDA. There is some debate over whether this should be the case. Regardless, before exposing your tree nut-allergic child to coconut, you should consult your allergist.
