How to Make SCOBY Fruit Leather (Recipe)




Yield 10 -12

Our family loves this healthy probiotic rich treat. When dehydrated at a low temperature, the SCOBY maintains its healthy acids and bacterial activity, secretly making this leather a terrific probiotic rich snack.



  1. Combine the fruit and sugar in a medium saucepan.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the fruit and sugar are thoroughly broken down and combined, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the fruit mixture and SCOBY puree to a blender, along with the spices if using, and pulse until the mixture has the texture of applesauce and all the ingredients are combined.
  4. Spread the mixture onto wax paper, parchment paper, or silicone dehydrator sheets in a layer about ¼ inch thick.
  5. Dehydrate for 12 to 36 hours. If you’re using a dehydrator, use the lowest setting (95–110°F  or 35– 43° C). If you’re dehydrating in an oven, set it to its lowest temperature and prop the door open.
  6. Once the mixture is dried and no longer sticky, gently remove from the wax paper. If the leather is difficult to remove from the wax paper, stick it in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes; then peel off.
  7. Cut the leather into strips. These can be rolled up or cut into bite-size pieces. Store in an airtight container at room temperature; they will keep indefinitely but might dry out over time.
