What Types of Mangoes can be dehydrated?
You can use ripe, fresh mangoes or frozen mangoes and any variety of mangoes can be dehydrated.
Tips and Variations:
- The mango slices must be thin slices for faster dehydration.
- The key to getting great dehydration is allowing the mangos to dehydrate for a long time at low heat. Don’t hurry it, leave and go work on other recipes!
- Mangos are not fussy but try to cut them in a uniform way to avoid some drying out more than others.
- If you don’t have a dehydrator, you can bake it in the oven using a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat.
- To test if the moisture is completely removed from the mango, put a few slices in a ziplock bag. If moisture accumulates in the bag, dehydrate it more. Why? They will spoil because they’re not done dehydrating.
- Storage: Store in airtight containers like mason jars for up to a year in a refrigerator.
How to Make Dried Mangos:
Listed below are all the ingredients you will need:
- 2 mangos
Peel the mangos and slice them thinly. If you want thicker slices, feel free to do so – just be aware that they will take longer to dehydrate. Then, arrange the sliced mangos on the dehydrator sheet, set the dehydrator to the “Fruit” setting, and allow it to dehydrate until desired consistency:
So times will vary based on humidity levels. Mine took about 11 hours and sometimes it takes about 18 hours. Store in an airtight container in the fridge, or enjoy right away!
If you’re looking for more healthy snacks, try these fan favorites:
Dehydrate at 135°F / 57°C for about 11 hours until dry and pliable.
Dried mango is a healthy snack to eat when you’re in need of a healthy treat.
If the dehydrated mangoes are stored in the refrigerator, they can last for up to 1–2 years.
- 2 mangos
- Peel the mangos and slice thinly. If you want thicker slices, feel free to do so – just be aware that they will take longer to dehydrate.
- Arrange the mangos on the dehydrator sheet. If you are using the oven method, place on a parchment-lined tray.
- Set the dehydrator to the “Fruit” setting and allow it to dehydrate until desired consistency. Times will vary based on humidity levels. Mine took about 11 hours and sometimes it takes about 18 hours.
- If you are using an oven, set it as low as possible and dehydrate until very dry and crispy. Since the oven will be at a higher temperature this may only take 10-12 hours.
- Check every 30 minutes after the 10-hour mark until you are happy with the level of dryness.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge, or enjoy right away.
