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! ;)
