Yonanas Review!!


This is another kitchen gadget that I got to have when I saw the infomercial.  As a health conscious individual this is right up my alley.  We loved ice-cream but the saturated fat content, high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oil and the long list of ingredients scared me.  I had been drastically cut down on buying them at the supermarket and wanted an alternative.  Then, I saw this and this was the answer.

The Yonanas machine above priced at $50. Easy to install, easy to use and easy to clean.  Came in 5 pieces, except the base engine, the rest are dish washer safe or just wash with warm soupy water right after use.


Ingredients I used here were 2 frozen bananas (got to be the one with dark spots so that it would be sweeter) and 1 cup of frozen blueberries, thaw for 5-7 minutes.  (There are tons of recipes in the recipe booklet that came with it)


Turn it on and push the fruit down with the plunger and we have this creamy and healthy blueberries banana ice-cream.


Eating a bowl of ice-cream never felt this healthy before.  It's just plain fruit, no cream, milk, sugar, high fructose corn syrup, saturated fat or any artificial ingredients added.  There are more recipes in their website.  This is not a paid review so I am not sharing a link here, but you can easily find the website via search engine.  I just wanted to share this product with my readers who would love a healthier alternative to ice-cream.

One downside is if your fruit is sourish or tart, then the ice-cream would be sourish instead of sweet.  You can add chocolate kisses or top it with homemade chocolate or strawberry syrup, caramel sauce should do the trick.  I top mine with Gula Melaka syrup!  ;)

Disclaimer:  This is not a paid review and I received nothing from Yonana.  Just me sharing a kitchen gadget that I bought recently.

wwo, that's easy ice-cream! I want! Both the machine and the ice-cream :P

Stephanie said...

Yum!! I guess adding bananas to the recipes would make them sweet

daphne said...

oh my goodness. I see that in fairs and markets here-poeple selling the ice cream but dint realise the machine is actually so reasonable to buy.

I seldom make and eat ice-creams except my energy level is low. I agree with you that home made is definitely healthy and gadget is worth the investment. I may look out and see if I can find the same over here.

The ice-cream is yes, very tempting and creamy.

Love to have this gadget in my kitchen to make ice-cream anytime of the day. On top of that no more guilt feeling when eating ice-cream.

Tigerfish, go get it at Bed Bath & Beyond and use the 20% off coupon. ;)

Stephanie, that's the idea and have to use the ones with lots of dark spots.

Really Daphne, there are selling this ice-cream at the fairs in Australia? Oh yes, it's actually only $40 with 20% off coupon from Bed Bath & Beyond.

Nava, very creamy indeed, furthermore, I am basically eating fruit!

Hilda, go get one!

Both Anons, not sure whether you can get it in Singapore. But you can try buying it online at Bed Bath & Beyond (not sure whether they ship overseas though). Or write to the Yonanas people directly and ask them, they have a Facebook page too.

Exactly Ling! I had some banana mango yesterday and I felt a bit guilty because it tasted so much like ice-cream that I had to remind myself that I was actually eating fruit. Hahaha... funny right?

daphne said...

yeah they do! it's like $4 a cup. but then, it is full of fruit. I always get i when I go! LOL My fav- mango and pineapple.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Daphne, I think you can buy the machine in Australia. I think they have a supplier there.

You're welcome Sonia.

I saw this at Wal-Mart the other day and wasn't sure about it. Thanks for the review! I'm always searching for alternatives to ice-cream for my daughter as well. I might have to try it :)

You're welcome Hajer. :) This is a really guilt-free ice-cream alternative.
