Happy Friday and Happy Father’s Day to all of our wonderful dad’s…relax and treat yourself to some yonanas this Father’s day weekend!…ENJOY!  – Candice


Oh My God!!!….Just bought Yonanas yesterday and used it for the first time tonight. I am in love…..Total yumminess…..I cannot wait to buy some more fruit and make another treat this weekend. The girls at work were like…let me know how it works, etc…….I cannot wait to go to work tomorrow and tell them what happened in my house tonight…..My husband and I sitting on the couch eating homemade wicked healthy softserve!. Thanks so much…..I will be eating healthy and yummy for a long time! – S. O’Donnell


I can’t thank you enough. Not only does your company make an excellent product, your customer service is exemplary!  I hope to see the yonanans on the market for years to come.  It is a healthy alternative to ice-cream.  I LOVE IT!  Kind regards – F. Weigelt


Wow – Thank you! My husband has lost 60 pounds since November exercising and following a diet plan.  He loves dessert!  Someone gave him the yonanas machine for Chanukah, and it was the best gift he got!  He can actually eat this guilt-free dessert. And I am sort of a naturally healthy eater, so this machine has become one of our favorite gadgets. Thank you – C. Feldman

Happy Friday everyone!  Thank you for all of the wonderful comments this week! Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend! – Candice


This one I received this week in the mail…what a wonderful letter!

I am writing to tell you that you have created the best product ever!  I am so happy with my Yonanas machine – it is so easy to use and frankly, just amazing! I absolutely love eating Yonanas because it’s delicious, healthy, natural, versatile, and it just makes me happy!  I really feel uplifted after having a bowl.  Really, you could be nominated for a Nobel Prize for this invention.  It is truly the greatest thing to come along in the world of healthy eating.  If I were stranded on an island and could only bring one machine, I would definitely bring my Yonanas!  This invention has made my life happier and healthier.  For so long I stayed away from ice-cream because I didn’t want all the extra fat or artificial ingredients.  Now I have something way better!  Thank you so much! Sincerely – R. Riley


I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am to have found your Yonana maker. I just had a baby ten weeks ago and found out that she had a severe milk allergy and since I am breast feeding and a dairy-a-holic I was heartbroken. At about four weeks I was ready to throw in the towel and switch over to formula because I was having a hard time without ice-cream. My sister had the same issue with her child three years ago. One night she was watching TV and immediately called me. She suggested the maker and I didn’t really believe it was really going to fill the massive sweet tooth that I had but I went and bought one anyways. I was so wrong. Your yonana maker has changed me. Even when I am done breast feeding my little one I will continue to use my Yonana maker because it is fantastic. Oh, and besides being delicious I have lost 33 pounds in the last ten weeks which I would have never been able to do without your machine. Thank you and I hope your machine makes it to every house in America. – S. Conrad


I have been to your facebook page and entered the contest also sent a copy to all my friends on facebook.  I couldn’t wait to win one, so I bought it…I am 74 years young and love ice-cream, but I am lactose intolerant and I am on a gluten free diet.  Fruit is a very important part of my daily intake.  Also, I have always been referred to as Yo-Nana by all my grandchildren…so there you have it!  Thanks again!  – Jeannette aka Yo-Nana

Happy Friday everyone! With the weather warming up it is a perfect time to enjoy some Yonanas and read our wonderful comments.  Have a great weekend and Enjoy – Candice


We did a yonanas station for our teachers last week for teacher appreciation.  They loved it, and I am sure I sold at least 10!  One teacher has a child with dairy allergies, so she said this was a great choice for her family!  – C. Woods


Never imagined the Yonanas would create such delicious and healthy deserts! A couple of friends dropped by and we whipped up desert in no time flat. Clean up is a snap! We have had it for about a week and can hardly wait to try more of your wonderful recipes. – BJ


I was skeptical like everyone else–and then completely overwhelmed by how good the ice cream was and how easy the machine is to use. I have everyone try it, and three family members have gone out and bought one after trying ours. My kids love this! They think they are getting a special treat and I have the peace of mind knowing it is healthy for them :) I cannot recommend this enough. We are making our own recipes all the time and look forward to our dessert every night. This was great for my nephew who has milk allergies and never gets ice-cream; now thanks to Yonanas he gets ice-cream too! – Grimm

Thank you for all your wonderful comments!  Everyone have a relaxing and great weekend…ENJOY! – Candice


Our whole family was shocked how WONDERFUL this product is!!! You would think you were eating the creamiest ice cream ever!!! This is one fantastic idea!!!! It is sooooo creamy and tasty!! I can’t wait to freeze a ton of bananas. I read the other reviews and have no idea what they did wrong if they were not pleased. It is no noisier that any other motorized appliance that I own and it was super easy to clean. I think it is one of the best inventions I have ever purchased. I am buying one for my Aunt for Mother’s Day!!! I highly recommend it!! It is a delightful way to eat your fruit!! – Krissy K.


I teach cooking classes and have written a popular cookbook. I have owned several Vita mixes and other high-powered blenders over the years. But nothing works quite like this. It really tastes like soft serve ice-cream, without all the junk. Used mixed berries and the taste was amazing. I really didn’t expect there would be such a difference in taste and texture from a blender or food processor, but there is. Some people have written worrying about part replacement, but quite frankly, I just paid $8 for a large smoothie at a franchise restaurant last week. So with your 20% off coupon, 5 restaurant smoothies will pay for a Yonanas! And so much healthier using real fruit! Easy to clean, too! – EatVegan4dollarsaday


We received the Yonanas a few weeks ago and are perfectly satisfied! I prepped before it came cutting my bananas into quarters, kiwis the same, pineapple into chunks and even froze grapes! I bought some frozen peaches (until they come into season), cherries and mixed berries. I put all of my choices for that session onto a small plate and let them partially thaw as recommended. I then layer each of the fruits so that I don’t get just one flavor at a time. The machine is a little noisy, but no worse than my hot air corn popper and the clean-up is easy. A great way to get non or only occasional fruit eaters to get the benefits of a multitude of fruits at one time! Since I can’t process dairy, this is a life saver for me! – G. Cork

With Mother’s Day this weekend, remember to treat your Mom right!  One of our yonanas fans wrote in and was thinking of buying a yonanas for her Mom and her sister for Mother’s Day…what a wonderful gift idea!  I wish all the Mother’s a very happy Mother’s Day and remember to relax and enjoy a bowl of yonanas on your special day…you deserve it!  Have a great weekend! -Candice


Love, love, love this machine!!! I have severe GI problems and can only eat a few things. I can’t believe how well this works – the consistency is unbelievable. No longer have to miss my ice cream and I’m getting so many great benefits from the fruits. I would never eat this much fruit by itself and no longer have to worry about fruit going bad since I freeze it as soon as it comes in from the store. Saves money too! Thinking of buying a machine for my mom & sister for Mother’s Day!!! – Hope M.


OMG! Bought my first yonana maker 2 days ago after finding the sticker on my banana and can honestly say I AM IN LOVE!!! I read all the reviews, pros and cons and let me say the PROS outweigh the cons! The only “con” I found was that there was not a big bright sticker warning you NOT TO LICK THE PARTS! (Where the fruit stuck on the blades) Didn’t cut myself but realized I was lucky because I was lapping it up like a dog on a 40 mile desert walk! I will be purchasing 4 more – one for each of me nieces and nephews families!!! I have also been telling all my “friends” on Facebook and “Beyond Diet” how great this is!!! Can’t wait to get home tonight and have another serving of fruit! – Judiann B.


Love your machine, we had an enormous fruit basket from Edible Arrangements, froze the leftovers and made the best sorbet ever! – Paully R.

The weekend is finally here and it is that time again to share some of our favorite comments from this past week! Thank you and have a wonderful weekend…enjoy!-Candice


This is the best purchase I have ever made!! Not only does it help me to make my way through our continual crops of bananas, but it also has my 9 year old eating bananas, and he has not eaten a banana in 8 years!! Everyone should own one of these, love it to bits! – Michelle M.

I take my yonana with me to get togethers so others can see what a wonderful product this is…not to mention healthy.

Needless to say, my friends and family are now getting yonanas for themselves. I look forward to seeing what other products your company will develop! If you ever need a tester for your product, count me in. I am VERY impressed. Thanks for everything -Gabriela A.

This is amazing, I love it so much I am buying another one for back up!!! The triathletes in my house can’t enough especially in the hot Okanagan summer! Great for weight loss too as it is extremely filling and NO ADDED JUNK!!! Thank you! – Deborah C.

OMG! This is the one machine I own that has never seen a cupboard! It lives on the counter and gets daily use. I’ve convinced eight of my friends to get one and have given four as gifts. This should be the wedding gift of the year! – Val S.

Thank you to all of our wonderful yonanas’ fans! We appreciate your comments and we love that yonanas is helping so many of you to leading a healthier lifestyle!  ENJOY your weekend and your yonanas! – Candice


I am in love with my Yonanas machine!!! I have tried so many times to make soft serve or sorbet with my blenders and they always turn out with too many ice crystals or too runny. I now have my friends and family saving their overripe bananas for me, haha. My husband doesn’t eat much fruit, but he does NOW in Yonanas soft serve form. You are a genius in developing this, and helping us with our nutrition and diet needs. Thank you so much! God Bless you. – P. Vasquez

I heard about Yonanas from the sticker too- I think it is one of the most successful marketing items I have ever seen. I then went online, researched the product, found out it was cheapest to buy at Bed Bath and Beyond with a coupon- and bought one the same week. I could not be more pleased- since I gave up all sugar and sugar substitutes about 2 months ago for health reasons, I was literally facing a lifetime of no desserts- until now! Thank you for giving me an awesome, tasty, and safe dessert- it is blessing me immensely! – W. Lapp Merz

This is the first “soft serve ” I have had in four years, thanks to you. I am a diabetic and have kidney problems and as a result I control my sugar intake and due to my kidney problems am not allowed to eat chocolate or anything with artificial food coloring. Now you can see how much I enjoy your machine, by the way thanks to my son who owns one. – F. Dupuis

I just wanted to say I love your product so much that I have declared myself your unofficial spokes person. Having lost over a hundred plus pounds and turning my life around completely!  I now take your device to many of my meetings as a learning tool for the classes I teach awareness to. Members really seem to have ah ha moments when they see this product in action. It just fills me with joy to see them learn how to find healthy substitutes that will not only fulfill or physical hunger, but makes our taste buds smile. – D. Garrigan

It is time for your Friday-Faves! We had so many wonderful comments this week I had to post an extra one! Kathy saw our yonanas stickers (Turn me into Yonanas) on her Dole banana and is going to purchase a machine this week! Thank you and enjoy your weekend! – Candice


I heard of Yonanas through a sticker on a banana. I think that this is the most clever and innovative form of adverstising I have seen in a very long time. I love your product and can not wait to purchase some time this week! – Kathy C.


I recently purchased Yonanas from the Home Shopping network. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to have it. When I first saw it I just knew I needed it. It has so exceeded my expectations. Loving ice cream as I do I bought it as a healthy alternative. I never imagined that the end product would taste so fabulous. Thank you for this wonderful product. – Mary Anne P.


My family and I are huge fans of this product! I saw the Yonanas machine featured in an article in a fitness magazine and thought it would be a healthy alternative to ice cream for my kids as well as myself. We love it! I have recommended Yonanas to all my girlfriends/moms at the gym. I recently called customer service and your customer service was fantastic as well. Thank you for your time….and for inventing a great HEALTHY product! – Lauren C.


I purchased my Yonanas from Amazon… I used it for the first time yesterday and I was BLOWN AWAY! It’s like a miracle! I put frozen bananas and blueberries in and smooth, creamy “ice cream” came out! It’s so delicious! Where can I post my raves so others know that the results will exceed their expectations?! – Bambie B.
