A Freeze Dried Pantry Recipe
Contributed By: Live. Life. Simple.

This recipe can be made many ways with many ingredients.  Here is our mixture using blueberries, bananas, strawberries, kale and chocolate milk using raw powdered ingredients.


  1. In a blender, turn all fruit/ vegetable ingredients into a puree using little to no water
  2. Add puree onto a parchment or silicone lined freeze dryer tray
  3. Freeze dry as usual paying close attention to dryness (fruits can often require extra dry time and in some extreme cases, may require the machine to be defrosted and cycle continued)
  4. Place freeze dried fruits/ veggies/ milk into a food processor to create a fine powder
  5. Add desired ingredients together using the rehydration formula below as a baseline for water to powder mixture
  6. Store powders in a mason jar or mylar using an oxygen absorber
  7. Store Appropriately (See Tips and Tricks for storage help)
