Homemade fruit and vegetable powders.

A easy way to make fruit and vegetables powders using a dehydrator with a oven option.

This is a fun way to add color, flavor or hidden veggies in your kids (or adults) meals. I also used this for natural food coloring for my kids meals and art /science projects.

Produce ideas that you can dehydrated:

Dragon Fruit


Now that you have some ideas. I’ll show you how you can use them.

Breakfast meals

Yogurt. Add fruit powder to plain or even already flavored yogurt to make a fruity blend.

Oatmeal. Sprinkle fruit powders in oatmeal to make your plain oatmeal flavorful with sweet fruits. Just like the oatmeal packs we used to eat as kids.

Smoothies. Add fruit or vegetable powder to your smoothies for added color, flavor or nutrients. I like to add a few tsp of beet powder to my strawberry smoothies to make them bright and vibrant and get some hidden nutrients in there. You can also do this with Kale, carrots or spinach to for a boost of flavor and color. Any fruit powder will work for a perfect smoothie blend.

Granola. Add fruit powders to your granola for a nice fruity blend.

Cream cheese. Berry cream cheese? Yes please.

Baking or batters

Icing. Make natural food coloring using any fruit or vegetable blend. I know vegetables in icing sounds gross but a little bit goes a long way. You don’t even taste it because it’s hidden behind the loads of sugar. You can use fruit powders in the icing for added flavor. I used to love strawberry icing, imagine a pineapple or mango icing !

Batters. Add to any cake, pancake or waffle batter for some hidden nutrients.

Pies. Add more apple to your apple pies or pumpkin for your pumpkin pies !


Cocktails. Mix sugar and fruit powder around the rim for fun colorful cocktails. Alcoholic or non alcoholic.

Tea. Mix in with your teas to make sweet fruity tea blends. Add extra ginger and turmeric powder if you are feeling sick and need a boost.

Flavor waters. Add some fruit powder for kids who don’t enjoy drinking water. Or adults like my husband.

Milks. Stir in milk for flavor and color.

Other uses

Salad dressings. Add to your homemade salad dressings if you like fruity dressings. Or add vegetable powder for some cool colorful dressings.

Desserts. I sprinkled cherry powder on top of homemade cherry pop tarts. Sprinkle on ice cream, pies and cakes for a cute and flavorful topping.

Kid project food coloring. I like to use this for my kids art and science projects where they call for food coloring. It doesn’t always work depending on the type of project but you can still use it for most. I used this in volcanos, homemade paint, homemade playdoh, and a few other projects.

There are so many more uses but at least this gives you an idea of how to use them.

Here are some examples of how I used beet powder.
I used them in my strawberry smoothies to make them bright and vibrant.
I used them to make food coloring my kids science experiments.
I used it in food coloring for my Berry pop tarts icing color.


Now that you understand what to make them out of and how to use them let’s make them .
Step 1: Dehydrate
Step 2: Blend

Step 3: Store

There are so many ways you can use these these powders. I hope you enjoy making and using them as much I as I do.
