We recently had the chance to review a cool new appliance, the Yonanas frozen treat maker.
"Yonanas can be a healthier option than ice-cream for a number of reasons. Here are just a few:
•Yonanas is made using only fruit. (There is no added sugar, cream or other dairy added to this delicious treat).
•Simply banana yonanas contains zero grams of fat. An equal serving of soft serve ice-cream can have your buttons popping with 23 grams of fat in a 1 cup serving.
•A cup of simply banana yonanas will have 200 healthy calories as opposed to some brands of ice cream which can easily exceed 400 calories in a serving. More than 400 calories in some ice creams? Yikes!
•Yonanas doesn’t contain any cholesterol. Ice cream can contain upwards of 80mg cholesterol in a serving. Watch out arteries!
•Yonanas doesn’t contain any sodium. Comparatively, some soft serve ice creams have more than just a dash of sodium and some have more than 100 mg in a single serving!
•Yonanas contains fiber, vitamins, and minerals in each tasty serving.
Eating healthy never tasted so good!"
What we thought: I was excited to try out the Yonanas frozen treat maker because we are trying to eat a little healthier these days. We love ice cream and this sounded like a great way to make our usual snack a little better for us. The Yonanas maker couldn't be easier! We peeled and froze our bananas once they were super ripe. As a special treat before school, we made Yonanas with bananas and strawberries and we all loved it! Yep, with Yonanas you can let your kids eat "ice cream" for breakfast! We also tried bananas and dark chocolate...what an indulgent treat! The machine is easy to put together, simple to use and clean up is a snap...almost everything is dishwasher safe! The machine came with a recipe booklet with tons of great ideas...you can use so many variations of fruits, nuts and other "mix-ins" and really feel good knowing you are giving your family a healthy treat that they will really enjoy:) We are loving our Yonanas maker!
