A friend came and we decided to make fruit snacks for the kids. Really we were playing with the food processor (Kitchen Aid)! I have the popular mixer that has all the attachments. The mixer was a gift from my mother last year for my birthday and now has a spot on my counter.
We actually searched the fridge and randomly pulled out items to shred… I’m not sure the cucumber went over anywhere near as well as the apple slices. But the slicer did a great job. We had a fun time and the kids ate healthy snacks!
Seeing the apple slices, I could easily see getting a dehydrator and using them with it. The snacks would keep for extended periods and be healthier than snacks I would find in the stores with preservatives that I couldn’t pronounce.
All in all, it worked pretty well and went fast. The toughest part was cleaning up…. though I have to admit…. being new to the attachment – I do have a piece I still need to figure out how to put back on, as it popped off while I was trying to take the attachment off the mixer and get it cleaned. It does still look usable though……
