Gluten-Free Strawberry Licorice

  • Author: Meghan Telpner
  • Total Time: 18 hours 15 mins
  • Yield: 18 strips 1x


A simple three ingredient recipe for a raw, gluten-free, all natural licorice snack.


  • 2 cups of medjool dates
  • 1.2 oz (34 grams) freeze dried strawberries, or another freeze-dried fruit
  • 1/4 cup grape, cranberry, pomegranite, beet juice, or water (I used pure grape for this)


  1. Soak medjool dates in warm water until they rehydrate.
  2. Place all ingredients in your food processor or high speed blender and process until smooth,
  3. Transfer to a piping bag and squeeze out even rows (or make them wonky like me!) onto your non-stick dehydrator sheet.
  4. Place in the dehydrator at its middle-high setting and dehydrate for 12 hours. Remove and flip onto basic dehydrator sheet and replace in dehydrator for another 4-6 hours until dry to the touch and firm.
  5. Store in an airtight container or keep refrigerator if you’re in a humid climate.
