Yonanas Deluxe Ice Cream Treat Maker, Black/Silver 750071

Summary

Yonanas turns frozen fruit and other flavorings into a delicious, healthy soft-serve treat. The unit combines frozen bananas and any additional fruit or chocolate and instantly churns the ingredients to produce a treat with the texture of frozen yogurt or soft-serve ice cream, but without the additional fat, sugar, or preservatives. The chute easily accepts berries, sliced mango, or cantaloupe along with frozen banana, and the integrated spinning blade mashes and incorporates the fruit into a silky-smooth confection with the texture of soft-serve ice cream or yogurt. The chute, plunger, and blade are dishwasher safe. Deluxe model 901 Includes a dessert storage container, four popsicle molds, and recipe booklet.

Yonanas: Above Average Frozen Treats

Most of the time I get my fill of ice cream, frozen yogurt and popsicles in the summer and early fall but there are times that I crave something cold and sweet in the dead of winter. Blenders can handle almost anything if they have enough horsepower but you need to use the pulse button or take the lid off and move the ingredients around so there's contact with the blade. When I saw a demonstration of the Yonanas Deluxe Ice Cream Treat Maker (also referred to as Yo'Nanas Frozen Healthy Treat Maker) I thought it would be perfect to use with all of the frozen berries and bananas I had in the freezer for baking. If you want super soft and tasty bananas you should freeze them before cutting them up and mashing them, you will get a ton of flavor from them that way. While this is easy to use, it isn't going to yield something that tastes like ice cream unless you add milk, cream or yogurt to it. That's good for people who are lactose intolerant and are looking for something that they can make special desserts with but if you want a regular ice cream maker, this isn't for you. It isn't going to make enough per batch to serve as you would ice cream but for single portions or diet portions for two people, it's just right. I have used a ton of different frozen fruits in this and the only thing that didn't turn out all that great were grapes. I think the skins were too thick but this managed to tear through everything else I put in it so I can't see how grape skins were a huge challenge. The noise level is pretty high but you only have to run it for three to four minutes. It is relatively safe to use but wouldn't allow those under the age of thirteen to use it without supervision. Most of the parts are dishwasher safe but I prefer to hand wash and air dry it so there's no chance that the plastic will crack.

Yonanas was introduced to me by a friend and I have since introduced others to it. I have been on a diet and it is hard to find lower calorie treats to have for dessert. I love using this to make ice cream out of only frozen fruit and banana. It only has the calories of the fruit because nothing else is added. It is great on my diet and I get all the vitamins, minerals and fiber from the fruit. You can make any combination of frozen fruit you like but it has to have at least half of a good sized banana to give it the ice cream consistency. I especially love banana, strawberries, mango and blueberries. Don't worry if you do not like banana because you don't taste it. Performance Easy to use and clean up. Ease of Use Freeze fruit at least 24 hours before and then you are ready to go. This time of year I take advantage of all the seasonal fruit, cut it up if needed and freeze it. Ease of Cleaning You can keep adding more fruit.
