Every vegan should have a Yonanas in it’s kitchen.
I saw this gizmo at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $49.99 and just had to have it (plus I had a $20.00 off coupon).
It’s an awesome little machine that’s easy to use and clean up and makes soft-serve like “ice cream” out of frozen fruit.
The following is the product description from the manufacturer.
“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.”
I have found all of the above to be true. It’s the frozen banana that gives it the smooth creamy texture. I have been making strawberry/banana and strawberry/banana/mango. And I like to add vanilla and cinnamon (not frozen).

You can also freeze peanut butter and chocolate chips as well. Even alcohol can be frozen. Basically any ingredient you want to use just needs to be frozen.
Although the bananas in the picture with the product are pretty yellow bananas you actually need to freeze the speckled bananas. Apparently these are riper and sweeter.
Clean up is easy and there is usually a bit of fruit that doesn’t come down the chute so it’s usually a good idea to take apart and scoop out the remaining fruit.

The product also comes with a little recipe book but you are only limited by your own imagination.
The end results are fun, tasty, healthy dessert treats that are cruelty free.
Have fun and enjoy!!!!
