BLUEBERRY POWDER

This is more of a method, than a recipe! In keeping with our principle of #lesswaste, you can use leftover blueberry pulp from our Gummy Bear Recipe to make blueberry powder! This has a long shelf life and can then be added to smoothies, porridge, granola and muesli as a flavor and nutrient enhancer. It makes a great natural food colouring too.

 

Ingredients

  • Left over blueberry pulp

Method

  • Spread the blueberry pulp on a dehydrator sheet.
  • Dehydrate at 45 °C for ±6 hours, or until completely dry.
  • Scrape the dehydrated pulp off the dehydrator sheet and place in a coffee grinder.
  • Grind for 30 seconds.
  • Store in a glass jar in your pantry cupboard.
