What is strawberry powder?

Strawberry powder is made from strawberries that have been dehydrated in the oven, then blended into a fine powder.  Strawberry powder gives foods a fresh strawberry flavor and a natural taste.  Best of all, it’s preservative free, dairy-free, low carb and vegan friendly.

Since strawberry powder retains all the nutrients of strawberries, it is packed with vitamin C, vitamin K, and calcium.

Strawberry powder is also a good source of dietary fiber which supports digestive health and blood sugar control.

What are the ingredients I need and what are the instructions to make strawberry powder?

  • Strawberry
  • Sweetener of choice

We have found that using convection baking is key to ensuring proper drying of the strawberries. Also, cooking times may vary slightly with different ovens.

The trick to making very fine powder is to make sure your strawberries are fully dried and to use a high powered blender. I used a Vitamix and got great results from it.

Store in a cool dry place.  Best if stored in the freezer.

Can I use store bought dehydrated/freeze dried strawberries instead of fresh strawberries?

Yes!  If you want to skip the step of dehydrating your own strawberries, just buy ready-made dehydrated strawberries or freeze dried strawberries at your local grocery store and follow directions for blending.

  1. How long can you keep the powder for? Thanks!

  2. Can you only do on convection? Air fryer?

      Hello! You can do it with regular baking, but it might take slightly longer to dehydrate. I don’t think an air fryer would be best becasue the airflow would start picking up the strawberries.
