How amazing is a kitchen gadget that makes “ice cream” out of frozen bananas?

Yonanas turns frozen fruits into a delicious, low-cost, healthy treat that looks and tastes like soft serve ice cream. Yonanas creates a zero fat, zero cholesterol snack that is full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It's perfect for families looking to cut back on high calorie and high sugar desserts, and those who have children with dairy allergies. It's also the perfect tool if your kids need a little 'boost' to eat fruit!

Yonanas is a cross between a blender and an ice cream maker. The main part of the body consists of a chute that houses a spinning blade. There’s also plunger that’s used to push the fruit through the chute.

Here's how it works...

Peel and freeze bananas 24 hours before using. The idea is to place frozen bananas down the chute (along with other frozen fruit and flavours) and out comes a dessert with both the consistency and creamy texture of ice cream. The delicious blend of fruit tastes like frozen yogurt or sorbet. Really!

The manufacturer recommends that you use bananas as a base because it results in a creamier product, but you can use just about anything in it. Slightly over-ripe bananas do seem to work best, (they are softer and sweeter) but we also tried strawberries, blueberries, mango, peaches, pumpkin pie filling, and even added Oreo cookies to one batch. The possibilities are endless… combine fruits and flavours that you love most to create your own yummy recipes. If you're adding cookies, nuts, or chocolate, they do not need to be frozen.

Our mini taste-testers were so excited when the machine arrived that they took over the entire process. Our frozen bananas in ziplocks were already waiting in the freezer. The machine was super easy to use and making the frozen treats was really quick (under a minute). The most difficult part was waiting for the fruit to thaw slightly before using (about 10 minutes) so the dessert could reach the right consistency. Cleaning was a breeze too... you simply rinse the parts with soap and water. It's also dishwasher safe and the product is BPA-free.

Now you can make your own scrumptious, healthy, and fat-free frozen desserts. Your family can indulge without the guilt and enjoy an easy, fun way to eat your daily serving of fruits.

We loved this really cool, fun gadget that encourages kids to choose fruit for dessert or snacks!
