Hard vegetables such as beets, swede, turnips, pumpkin, you need to bake in the oven, after wrapping each vegetable in foil. Bake until soft (depending on the size of the vegetable).
Soft vegetables, such as cucumbers and tomatoes, do not need to be pre-baked. In tomatoes, it is desirable to remove the skin. Ripe fruits and berries (pineapple, kiwi, strawberries, apricots, mangoes, blueberries, etc.) are quite soft, so they also do not need baking. They only need to cut into small pieces.
Place a serving of fruit (200 g) in a blender with a quarter cup of water to make the blender easier to work with. Beat until mashed. Thoroughly strain through a sieve. Repeat with all fruits, berries and pre-baked vegetables.
So, you have strained juice and mashed potatoes. Puree put on a baking sheet, covered with baking paper. Send the trays to the oven, heated to the very minimum (about 90-100 degrees), all night.
In the morning, remove the dried mashed potatoes and proceed to the final stage. Using a coffee grinder, grind the pieces into powder.
You have got fragrant powder from fruits, berries and vegetables!
