Yonanas is an ice cream treat maker. I recently got one (thanks Gary & Amanda!) and there are a few things you should know about it.
How do you use it? You freeze up some fruit (minus the peels, if there are peels) and make sure that it's in your freezer in some kind of ziplock/tupperware-like container. Once it's frozen (a few hours), you can use it in the machine and make ice cream. And there's nothing added, it's pure frozen fruit. So if dairy is ever a problem for you, then you need this machine immediately.
Things You Should Know
- Do not try this with old, disgusting frozen fruit that has been sitting in your freezer for at least a year. I tried this genius idea and it spewed out little pieces of blueberry garbage. And since this was my maiden voyage of using this machine, I was deeply hurt that it didn't turn out like what was in the infomercial. I was in the wrong here, not the machine. DO NOT USE OLD FROZEN FRUIT.
- This stuff really does have the consistency of ice cream. It's weird. I tried some peeled cantaloupe next and... wow. If I'm ever adult enough to throw dinner parties or even to make a meal for my parents, this dessert is definitely being made. So classy! Cantaloupe ice cream? Get out of here. I'll be admissible for country clubs if word gets out.
- While the cantaloupe one was good, the bananas one? Out of this world. Just amazing. If you are ever at my house, demand that I make you some of the banana.
- Also, that photo up top? Whatever is in that bowl looks gross and is NOT the way that the fruit comes out. It's way more ice cream-y looking.
There are some great recipes here, which I'll try eventually once I've calmed down from the banana. It's usually around $55 and completely worth it. You can get one on Amazon, but you might be able to find a cheaper one in a Wal-Mart or Target possibly.
