The Yonanas Elite is a healthy frozen dessert maker, it makes “ice cream” desserts using 100% fruit.
This machine makes frozen treats that tastes exactly like soft serve ice cream, all without any added sugar or any ingredients other than 100% fruit. Are you someone who would rather eat strawberry ice cream than to eat a bowl of fresh strawberries?
If you’re one of those people who find eating fruit difficult but would like to eat healthier, you’re gonna love this machine. It can turn a few frozen bananas into creamy banana “ice cream,” the perfect frozen treat experience. It works not only with bananas, but also other fruits like strawberries, berries and mango as well.
You get to eat ice cream all you want while getting the full healthy benefits of eating fruit at the same time!
The Yonanas Elite Frozen Healthy Dessert Maker
How Does it Work?
1. Prepare Ripe Bananas
First you gotta ripen up a few of your bananas until there are cheetah-like spots all over them, this is how you know when bananas are sugary sweet. Bananas that are green or yellow without spots are unripe and have a lower sugar content, which makes inferior tasting dessert.
2. Freeze Bananas
Then you put them in the freezer for a period of time, ideally 24hrs. When you’re ready to make your “ice cream,” take them out and defrost them for about 10 minutes. If it’s too frozen then it won’t work very well and strain the motor, but too soft and it’ll just be too mushy.
It is suggested that you peel the bananas first and wrap them up in tinfoil before freezing them, this is because peeling frozen bananas are kind of difficult.
3. Using The Machine
Once you’ve done the steps above and ready to go, all you gotta do is turn on the Yonanas machine and the fun can begin. Just put in the bananas (or other fruits) into the chute, and push it down with the plunger that comes with the machine. Have a bowl ready at the bottom to catch the ice cream that comes out, it will be creamy and sweet and ready to eat!
You will not believe how 100% fruit without anything added to it can turn into something so soft-servy (is that a word?) and ice-cream like.
Not Only Bananas, Other Fruits Too!
Try it with frozen strawberries, mango, or a combination of other fruits for your own preference. Bananas and strawberries are a great classic combo. It is already great on it’s own, but you can add in toppings as well. Sprinkle some granola, toasted pecans or almonds, chocolate chips, or whatever you like. It would still be healthier than regular dairy ice cream, or even the vegan ice creams you find in the supermarket, these products contain so much fat, added sugar, and unhealthy preservatives that will mess you up.
Tip: Try freezing cubes of soy or almond milk in ice cube trays and add it in when making the desserts for an extra creamy texture

Other ideas include things like popsicles (YoPops) and ice cream cookie sandwiches.
Here is one of my favorite recipes from the Yonanas website:
Banana Bread Yonanas recipe:
A great way to use up your overly ripe bananas when you crave both banana bread and a sweet ice cream dessert at the same time!
- 2 frozen peeled ripe bananas
- 4 medjool dates (pitted)
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips
- A generous handful of toasted walnuts
- First you toast up the walnuts by chopping them up and throwing them in a pan on medium-high heat. Toast them until they’re nicely browned, then put them aside for later use.
- Take the bananas out of the freezer and start thawing them, sprinkle the cinnamon on them.
- Take 1 of the bananas and put it into the Yonanas machine.
- Take 2 of the medjool dates and add it in.
- Put in half of the chocolate chips.
- Repeat this process again with the remaining ingredients.
- Sprinkle the toasted walnuts on your ice cream before serving.
