Dehydrating Strawberries in the Air Fryer

My dehydrated strawberries in the air fryer recipe is a quick and easy way to preserve this fruit for later use!

Who doesn’t love a good bowl of fresh fruit? Strawberries are one of my favorites, but they can be slightly pricey, depending on the season. So, I’ve been experimenting with air frying them to see if I can get the same great taste without the high price tag. And guess what? It works!

Air fryers circulate hot air around the food, drying the fruit perfectly. This makes them ideal for dehydrating strawberries, as they retain their flavor and nutrients. The process also prevents them from going moldy, as there is no moisture for the mold to grow. It’s a great way to extend their shelf life and enjoy them all year round.

Air fryers are also much less messy than traditional dehydrators, as there is no need to line them with parchment paper or foil. Place the strawberries in the air fryer basket or oven and let it do its job. They can be stored in an airtight container or mason jar when dry and leathery.

Pro Tips For Dried Strawberries In Air Fryer

  • Start with fresh, ripe strawberries. The fresher the berries, the better they will taste once dehydrated.
  • Slice the strawberries into uniform pieces so that they will dehydrate evenly.
  • Place the strawberry slices in a single layer on the air fryer basket or the dehydrator trays. Be sure not to overcrowd the basket, as this will inhibit airflow and cause uneven dehydration.
  • Set the air fryer to the lowest temperature and dehydrate for 2-3 hours until the strawberry slices are leathery and dry.
  • Allow the dehydrated strawberry slices to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container. For the best quality, enjoy within 2-3 weeks.
  • Storing: Dried strawberry slices will store well during the summer months.


Can I dehydrate strawberries in the air fryer? Yes, you can dehydrate strawberries in the air fryer, or make air fryer strawberries, by slicing them thinly and cooking them at a low temperature for an extended period.

What temperature and time should I set my air fryer to for dehydrating strawberries? Preheat your air fryer to the lowest temperature setting (usually around 130-140°F or 55-60°C). Dehydrate the sliced strawberries in the air fryer for 2-4 hours, checking them periodically until they reach your desired level of dryness.

How thin should I slice the strawberries for dehydrating? Slice the strawberries into thin, uniform slices to ensure even drying. Aim for slices that are about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick.

Do I need to pre-treat the strawberries before dehydrating them in the air fryer? Pre-treating the strawberries (such as soaking them in lemon juice or sugar syrup) is optional but can help enhance flavor and preserve color. However, it’s not necessary for the dehydrating process itself.

How do I store air-fried dehydrated strawberries? Once the strawberries are fully dehydrated and cooled, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to several months. You can also store them in the refrigerator or freezer for a longer shelf life.

What can I use air-fried dehydrated strawberries for? Air-fried dehydrated strawberries make a delicious and nutritious snack on their own. They can also be used as toppings for oatmeal, yogurt, salads, or desserts or rehydrated and used in recipes like smoothies or baked goods.

How To Dehydrate Strawberries In An Air Fryer Oven Yes, that’s right, dehydrated strawberries are possible in your air fryer oven! Start by washing them and removing the stem. Next, slice the strawberries into thin pieces and spread them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Set your oven to the lowest possible temperature and place the strawberry slices inside. Check on the oven-dried strawberries every hour or so, and remove them from the oven once they are scorched. Store them in an airtight container until you’re ready to enjoy them.

Can You Dehydrate Frozen Strawberries? Yes, but the cooking process will take too long. Place strawberries in the air fryer and set the cooking time for 9-10 hours. Remove when completely dried.
