Okay, so I love Sour Straws. You know, those ones that come in the bright packaging and full of Red 40? Lol. But the ones I came up with are great, and taste just like the junk food, only way better for you. And plus, there’s no guilt. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Recipe Directions

1. Mix lemon juice and agave juice together in a bowl.

2. Take banana slices and dip in juice mixture.

3. Take Vitamin C powder and sea salt. Mix together more Vitamin C than salt. 

4. Roll bananas in it. Sprinkle extra salt on top.

5. Place in dehydrator until bananas are chewy.

Or perhaps by Vitamin C powder, ambergirl meant "citric acid?" I can find that stuff in bulk at my HF store and it sure is tart!

I mean vit. C powder - not the Emergen C packets... i don't think those would work b/c they fiz up. I don't know about citric acid. I might work! especially if it's tart! the more tart that powder is, the better! I'm sorry to hear that you don't have vit. C at your health food store! You should request it!!

Hey! When you say Vitamin C powder, do you mean like the Energy C packets or plain Vitamin C powder? Can't wait to make these!
