Where to Begin Your Freeze Drying Adventure

Where to Begin Your Freeze Drying Adventure

So, you’ve been reading all about our freeze drying obsession and you’ve decided that you want to begin your own freeze drying adventure too. Welcome to the freeze drying craze! 

Freeze drying is the perfect way to transform your favourite snacks and treats into delicious, mouth-watering goods. But where should you begin? Keep reading for a step by step on how to dive into the wonderful world of freeze dried treats. 

Get the Right Equipment

First things first, you’re going to want to invest in equipment. Freeze drying is a highly technical process, so investing in a good machine is critical. Here at That Sweet Lyfe, we use the Harvest Right freeze dryer to freeze dry all our favourite candies and snacks. It simplifies the process by automating all of the steps, and even alerts you when it’s done so you don’t have to keep checking on your treats.


We will say, these machines can be quite expensive. But don’t worry! There are many different ways to freeze dry candies at home without a freeze dryer. But if you’re serious about stepping into the world of freeze drying, a good machine is worth the investment (we promise). It’s faster, easier, and makes it simple and enjoyable!

Do Your Research

Once you have your machine ready to go, you’re going to want to do your research about what foods can and cannot be freeze dried. Our blog is the perfect place to begin your research! Here at That Sweet Lyfe, we give you all the insider information about what foods do and don’t work in the freeze dryer.


We’ve made some mistakes, and also discovered some incredible freeze dried treats – learn from our experiences to get a better idea of what you might want to try first.


Finally, when in doubt, try it out! The best way to get started on your freeze drying adventure is to experiment yourself. Our blog is a great place to get ideas for what to freeze dry, but everybody’s taste buds are different, so we recommend trying out different snacks and seeing what happens!


Learning by testing things out will open you up to a whole new world of possibility! Whether it’s candy, fruits, veggies, or even complete meals, there are so many things you can try freeze drying. By following some basic rules (like avoiding oils, cutting things into smaller pieces, and not mixing too many snacks at once), you can find some amazing new snacks that will easily become your go-to’s.


Be sure to follow along on our blog and social media to stay connected and learn all about new fun treats you can try freeze drying. Of course, if you aren’t interested in freeze drying at home, you can still enjoy yummy freeze dried treats. Browse our product page to check out That Sweet Lyfe’s products.
