Dehydrated Sweet Lime Banana

In preparation for this weekend’s adventures, I got the dehydrator out and decided to make something I haven’t made in awhile – dehydrated sweet lime banana.

It’s such an easy snack to make and the finished result tastes absolutely amazing.


  • 2 x standard size bananas
  • Small bottle of lime juice (can use lemon juice)

  1. Cut up bananas into thin slices
  2. Squeeze a reasonable amount of lime juice into a bowl
  3. Place the slices into the bowl
  4. Leave them to soak for a minimum of 5 minutes and ensure both sides get a generous coating of the lime juice
  5. Cutting out some foil or baking paper, place it in the dehydrator and place the slices on the tray; evenly spreading them out.
  6. Dehydrate

Now, despite leaving the dehydrator on for 8 hours for the dehydrated chilli con carne I made recently, you don’t necessarily have to leave it on for that long with the dehydrated sweet lime banana.

From memory, I’ve always left it on for about 4 hours which should be enough time for everything to dry out and for the banana slices to absorb the lime juice.

What I love about this snack is that the finished product is pretty much lime banana chips and is a healthy snack for when you are out on the trail.

Put it in a ZipLoc bag, seal it up and away you go!
