I’ve been looking for a healthy alternative to sugary snacks and desserts for my family. I was up late watching t.v. one night and I saw a product that caught my eye- Yonanas. Yonanas is a machine that makes healthy, frozen treats that look and taste like soft serve ice cream in minutes. Instead of sugar, cream, and other ingredients that are high in fat and sugar, Yonanas is made with nothing but frozen bananas and other frozen fruits. Yes, I said bananas and other fruits. I had to try this amazing machine for myself and it didn’t disappoint.
The machine is easy to use, only has a few parts, and therefore is also easy to clean. You start off with frozen bananas. What’s great is that the bananas need to be spotted brown and not yellow, green, or black. Now I don’t have to worry about not eating all the bananas in my house fast enough. When I only buy a banana or two, my kids end up wanted more. But if I buy more, then they somehow decide they don’t feel like eating bananas that week and they start to turn brown. Once those bananas get spotted brown, they are perfect for freezing for Yonanas so I am not wasting any more bananas. I have a baggie in my freezer that is where we keep our frozen bananas. When we are ready to make Yonanas we simply take a few out to defrost for about 10 minutes per the directions and we’re ready to go!
The machine is so simple (only has 1 button) that my children can use it (with supervision, of course).
Put a bowl in front of the machine, turn the machine on, and put a banana in the chute on top.
Use the plunger to push the banana down through the machine.
Next do the same with whatever other fruit or mix in you are using. Follow with another banana, more fruit, etc. until you make as much as you want. Stir it all together and that’s it!
It’s the bananas that make it so creamy and like ice cream. Don’t like bananas? You can also use the machine to make sorbet with other frozen fruits. Making sorbet with the Yonanas machine is just as delicious!
There are so many options with Yonanas. It includes a recipe book with lots of great ideas of combinations. Below you can see 3 of the many combinations that we tried. On top we made Yonanas with Nilla Wafers and bananas, on the bottom right we made Yonanas with Oreos and bananas, and on the bottom left we made Yonanas with mixed berries and bananas. They were all delicious but when we mixed the Nilla Wafters version with the mixed berry version it was like eating a berry pie. SO YUMMY!!!
I love that my children are eating lots more fruit now and we haven’t had any sugary ice cream since we started using the Yonanas. If you are on Weight Watchers and only use fruit, your Yonanas creations will have ZERO POINTS!!! Eat as much as you want!!!
Yonanas is dishwasher safe but we’ve been using our daily so I have been hand washing it. There are only a few parts to clean so cleanup is quick and easy.
