Strawberry, Squash, Banana, Chia crisps (Dehydrator Recipe)

This recipe is a hodge podge of leftovers and I must say that the Strawberry flavor is fresh and dominant. My Weston Dehydrator did have one glitch. The on and off button stop wanting to stay in the on position. Lucky for me the timer can shut off the machine. Then for a bonus I taped the button to the on position and we have a working machine again.

You will need:

2 bananas (frozen thawed fine)
2 cups shredded green squash (frozen thawed fine)
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries rolled in 1T. sweet of choices (sweet opt.) (frozen thawed fine)
3 T. Chia Seeds (it is an odd number because it was what I had left)
pinch of salt (opt)
1 tsp. ground Cinnamon

Place these ingredients in a food processor and blend until well blended. Take prepared sheets on dehydrator trays and scoop out mix into them. Making a layer about 1/4 inch thick. Put filled sheets into dehydrator and dehydrate and 135 until dry on top and able to peel/flip onto grated trays to finish drying. The Crisps are done when dry on both sides, yet pliable/bendable. Break/peel off into smaller pieces and store in Ziploc or glass jar with lid.

Very good...

I have been wanting healthy snacks after my surgery and this is one great inspiration. Hope you enjoy the food.
