Yonanas!!!

Boy do I have something fun to share with y’all today! It is Yonanas!! I just love saying the name.

This wonderful machine totally rocks when it comes to turning frozen fruit into soft serve. That’s right! It turns frozen fruit into the consistency of soft serve ice cream. So, if you are looking for a fun way to get your kids (or yourself Smile) to eat their fruit this is a great way! Plus it is super easy to use, pull apart, and is dishwasher safe (It doesn’t come into my house unless I can put it in the dishwasher).

All you need is some frozen fruit. You can freeze your own or buy some frozen fruit in the freezer section at your local grocery store. You then put the frozen fruit in the tube and use the plunger to push it through the machine. It is so easy! Even my 7 year old son can do it, and he had a ton of fun doing it too!

Then, the Yonanas machine blends the frozen fruit and turns it into soft serve! I was skeptical at first, but it came out perfect. For our first try my son wanted banana and strawberry swirl. He isn’t one for trying something easy first. We put frozen sliced strawberries and bananas through the machine, and we got our strawberry banana swirl!!

I was next!! Since blending worked so well for my son, I decided to blend some fruit together myself. My choice: blueberry, banana, pineapple swirl! It came out perfectly and I loved the combination. My bowl of swirled fruit had a total of 3 servings of fruit. My son ended up eating 6 servings of fruit by the time we were finished! Our next plan is to freeze Greek yogurt in an ice cube tray and put the frozen cubes of yogurt through the Yonanas machine along with the fruit. It doesn’t say that you can do this, but I love experimenting!

I honestly love this machine! It is such a great way to make eating fruit fun, and there are no added sweeteners at all! This is all 100% fruit and nothing else! I know it will be getting a lot of use in our household, and I bet you will love it too! Yonanas is available at your local Target, Walmart, and Bed Bath and Beyond.

Well, I can’t post without putting something workout related into it, so here is a 30 minute elliptical workout I did last week, but haven’t gotten around to posting yet (sorry). I tend to turn my elliptical time into a spinning routine, so there are some sprints thrown into this one. Enjoy!

    I can honestly say it does a better job than a food processor with the way it turns the fruit into soft serve! We just had some for “desert” again tonight 🙂

    I keep fluctuating on getting one of these. It looks so promising, but then I hear people who have a hard time getting the consistency right. But, I love frozen yogurt and think this would be great. I always have frozen bananas on hand.

      I didn’t have any problems with the consistency. The blueberries were the only ones that left tiny chunks, and they were really tiny at that. I could see people having problems with consistency if their frozen fruit was covered in ice particles from sitting in the freezer for a long time.
      We will try using frozen yogurt cubes this weekend.
