Lots of pure fruit here, but remember that drying concentrates calories. Take grapes and raisins, for example. A cup of fresh grapes has 104 calories; a ½ cup of raisins has 216. Keep portions small. What about freeze-drying? It doesn't concentrate calories and is easy on flavors and most nutrients, but it's pricey.
