  • 2 mangos (any variety)
  • lemon juice or sugar (optional topping)


  • Cut the mangos into thin slices, about ¼" thick. You want the slices to be as similar in size and thickness as possible so that they all dry at the same rate.
  • Place the mango pieces on the tray of a dehydrator. Make sure to leave room around each slice so that the air can circulate them. You can sprinkle with sugar or lemon juice if desired, but it's not necessary.
  • Place the lid on the dehydrator and set it to 135ºF. It will take anywhere from 6-10 hours for the mangos to fully dehydrate. Start checking them around 6 hours. You want them to be just a little rubbery but not wet. I prefer my dried mango to be pliable and not completely crisp so I usually stop the drying at 6 hours. They will firm up a bit more once they cool. You may need to remove some smaller pieces first and keep dehydrating any larger pieces a little longer.
  • Store the dried mango pieces in a sealable container in a cool dark place or freeze them for later.


  • To prevent the mango pieces from sticking to your dehydrator, flip them over after 4 hours. This will loosen them from the rack and also air in even drying
  • Once done, the mangos should be pliable with no moisture present. Cut one in half, if there is still moisture, keep drying the mango until no moisture appears
  • Times will vary depending on how thin the slices are, the climate, the outside and inside temperature at the time, and your dehydrator.
  • Always read the manual for your dehydrator and follow all safety recommendations.
