Prep Time: 10 Minutess
Cook Time: 2 Hours
Yield: 4 Servings

  • 1 bunch kale, chopped (make sure the leaves are as dry as you can getting them after washing them)
  • 1 Tbsp of olive oil
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • ½ tsp of pepper
  • 8 oz of cream cheese (can use less based on preference) 


  1. Place the cream cheese in a bowl and allow to come to room temperature for a half hour. (You can also microwave it on the defrost setting for a couple minutes, but keep an eye on it if you go this route so you don’t dry the edges)
  2. Preheat oven to 150°F
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients (through garlic powder)
  4. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the kale mixture out evenly and dehydrate for 2 hours in the oven, flipping once halfway through
