Yonanas Review and Giveaway

We all know fruit is important and essential in one's diet, but sometimes we want the easy way out.  People would rather have a slice of cherry cheesecake, a piece of blueberry pie, or even minced strawberries on top of their frozen yogurt.  Does this sound familiar? We need to stop fooling ourselves and thinking it's okay, you're still eating a dessert, not straight fruit. Wouldn't it be nice if we could enjoy the fruit that our body needs, but still have it taste delicious and dessert like too? Well now you can!

Yonanas, the amazing kitchen appliance, is more than a banana ice cream maker! Yonanas creates delicious, healthy recipes that taste rich and decadent. Your frozen treat takes on the flavor of ingredients you mix in. Simply add frozen strawberries, high antioxidant blueberries, or dark chocolate and create a creamy, frozen treat that tastes like strawberry, blueberry, or chocolate chip dairy-free ice cream.

Indulge without the guilt and enjoy an easy, fun way to eat your daily serving of fruits.  A low calorie diet rich in fruits and vegetables can help you lose weight, look and feel great, and maintain good health.

The best part about Yonanas is that you're not adding milk, cream, or anything else to the machine.  Frozen fruit is the ONLY ingredient needed. You won't believe your eyes when you see what comes out of the machine! You will think you're at your local frozen yogurt shop, but you're really just having frozen fruit.

I'm always looking for a better way to get in my recommended daily servings of fruit.  When I received the chance to review a Yonanas, I was excited.  I had heard of the machine previously and knew it deserved a spot in my kitchen.  The machine was shipped to me within two days, that is lightening fast service!


Look at the Yonanas machine, isn't it pretty? :) The machine came already assembled, which surprised me.  I thought I would have to put it together. The machine is not too large and easily fits on my countertop. I read through the recipe book which came with it to give me some fruity inspiration.  I decided to make a combination of blueberry and banana for my frozen treat.

You're supposed to freeze the fruit for 24 hours.  I bought a container of blueberries and some bananas to use.  Make sure that you peel the bananas before freezing them, or else you'll have a really hard time peeling them once they're frozen.

A day later, it was time to get my Yonanas on! I set up shop and fruity frozen treat dreams danced in my head.



When you use the Yonanas for the first time, remember to read the manual so you know how to operate the machine.  The instructions told me to alternate between using each of your fruits. So you use a banana, then blueberries, then banana, etc.  A serving size for 2 people is two bananas and some blueberries. Simply take the plunger out of the top of the machine and put the frozen fruit inside, and then take the plunger and push down on the fruit.  What comes out is a beautiful, silky smooth, creamy frozen fruit concoction like you see in my bowl.  This was the beginnings of the fruit. I love the beautiful pale pink color of the blueberries and the light yellow of the bananas too.

After I fed the machine all of the fruit, this is what was in my bowl.
Look at this! The consistency is amazing. If I didn't know that it came from the Yonanas, I would think it was frozen yogurt or ice cream.  It's perfectly cold and creamy and tastes fantastic. I can equally taste the bananas and blueberries and it is simply fantastic! This is a more fun way to enjoy your favorite fruits.  Add a few chocolate chips or some granola on top to make your fruit extra delicious.  Instead of ice cream or frozen yogurt, why not have this as an evening snack? It's guilt free and much healthier for you. If you normally have fruit for breakfast, how about having this instead? It will be a new switch up on an old reliable breakfast.  You can even incorporate it into a breakfast parfait too.  The best part about Yonanas is that you can use any fruit you desire.  A combination of raspberries, blueberries, and bananas is what I will try next time!

Parents, Yonanas has your back too.  If your child isn't a fan of fruit but will happily gobble up some ice cream, why not serve them this? They won't know it's pure frozen fruit, but will think you're indulging their unhealthy ice cream wishes!

Yonanas is handwash or dishwasher safe.  Make sure that you clean out the machine (the parts become removable) after each use because a lot of the fruit gets trapped in the blade and inside the machine.

If you're looking for a more fun and delicious way to enjoy fruit, Yonanas is your go-to machine.
