Friday Faves


Hello to all of our wonderful fans and happy weekend!  Our Friday Faves this week come from some of our fans who love all the amazing benefits of Yonanas. In fact, they love Yonanas so much, they’ve bought multiple machines!! Yonanas is the perfect gift for any occasion! Have you given Yonanas as a gift? Tell us who you gave it to and how they reacted! –Whitney


  • I just wanted to tell you how fabulous I think the Yonanas machine is! I’m sure I won’t be able to find words enough to praise this product adequately. I have owned a number of “unhealthy” ice cream machines in the past and they all ended up in the trash. Too bulky, too much work, too complicated, too long to wait for the finished product! Then I was turned on to Yonanas! One demonstration & taste and I was sold! It has become my gift of choice for all my family and friends! It’s fast & easy and best of all HEALTHY! I have purchased 5 of them as gifts already and now have all my friends buying them as gifts for their family! My daughter-in law was so excited when she found out she was getting one she literally screamed! I just wanted to say Thank you so much for such a terrific product and providing a healthy alternative to ice cream that adults and children love and readily accept without question that it tastes like ice cream!-  Ann Piazza


  • Bought this in the spring…. and I honestly must say it was the best 50 dollars I have spent in a long time. I am now being healthier and consuming more fruit than I have in years. I did not have ice cream once this summer. I honestly eat Yonanas frozen treats at least once a day.  I buy frozen fruit (in the summer I bought melons and fresh fruit, cut up and froze it all) and bunches of bananas (which I rarely ate before) and Yonanas up a half dozen or so for myself to freeze and a half dozen for my mom (who loves it almost as much as I do). I either sit the frozen fruit out for about 15 minutes or microwave it about 30 seconds and start the machine up. When freshly made the treat is more soft serve, when frozen its hard serve– unless you microwave for 20 secs and then YUMMY perfection. I have recommended it to family and friends and when I do, I tell them unless you use mostly bananas it is more like a frozen fruit sorbet. The bananas definitely add the creamy texture that ice cream lovers would probably want. I tend to mix it all up, sometimes more sometimes less bananas. I am actually about to buy a second machine for backup… that is how much I love this machine!! Just my thoughts, but if you are looking for a healthy tasty treat, try it. Also, clean-up is a breeze, a quick run under the faucet and done. Top rack dishwasher safe and a quick wipe of the motor and done.- Lisa

Happy weekend to all of our wonderful fans! Our Friday Faves this week come from fans who are enjoying dairy-free desserts thanks to Yonanas. We are so thrilled to hear how many of you are enjoying tasty frozen treats again thanks to Yonanas! –Whitney


  • The greatest treat maker ever! All kinds of fruit work well, and for those who can’t have dairy you can still enjoy a healthy ice cream like treat. Our favorite is bananas and strawberries covered with chocolate syrup…yum!- Cynthia Knight
  • Wonderful non-dairy and healthy! We love this product! By the way, I am allergic to bananas, so I just use peaches, blueberries, strawberries, and cherries and it works fine! I just make mine before they stick bananas in it. My daughter can’t have dairy, but with this she can enjoy treats with the rest of us. Awesome product!- Ram2727
  • Perfect for making inexpensive dairy-free frozen desserts. My family prefers homemade frozen desserts made with our Yonanas over ice cream. Unlike other homemade ‘ice cream’ machines, the amount of desert you can make at one time isn’t limited by a small freezer bowl. In fact, you can easily make desert for all the guests at a birthday party if you have enough frozen bananas and other ingredients on hand. Best of all, the frozen desserts made with Yonanas are dairy-free (that is to say, the main ingredient is bananas not milk or cream) and inexpensive compared to ice cream at your local grocery: a bunch of bananas that you might pay $1.50 for makes as much or more desert than you would get in a 1/2 gallon tub.- So Serious

Happy Friday! Our Friday Faves this week come from some self-proclaimed “Gadget Lovers.” They are calling Yonanas their new favorite gadget, which we love to hear! Have you introduced the gadget lover in your life to Yonanas yet? We want to hear what they think! -Whitney


  • I bought my Mom a Yonanas for her birthday recently. We LOVE kitchen gadgets, but this has to be our new favorite ……& one of the best we have ever purchased!! What’s also great is that it is dairy free! I have an issue with my kidneys where I have to limit my calcium intake. I can now indulge without worry!! I like it so much better than ice cream too!! LOVE it & recommend it to everyone!! –Michelle N


  • I’m feeling great again about eating desert, with no guilt. Looks great, very easy to use, easy as A-B-C. You’re able to enjoy a delicious and fast desert. There are very few parts, which makes clean up fast, and easy. It’s a great gadget to have to make healthy, delicious, and fun deserts anytime you desire. –Gina W


  • The best! This is, for sure, the most useful gadget since slice bread invention. If you like bananas, gelato you MUST buy one of this u won’t regret, BELIEVE me! -Eduardo

Happy Weekend!! We continue to be blown away by the overwhelming support from all of our fabulous fans! Our Friday Faves come from whole families enjoying Yonanas. It is so great to hear how fans of all ages are enjoying healthy desserts together with Yonanas. Who is the biggest Yonanas lover in your family? –Whitney


  • What a fruitastic creation! I was so excited about receiving my Yonanas, and in the meantime put a set of 4 “overripe bananas” in the freezer with a few strawberries waiting for it to arrive. When I first got it I was skeptical on how this would work …going in as a fruit and coming out tasting like ice cream…but just had to see it for myself. Sure enough the outcome is a smooth, cold, ice creamy textured creation that could be easily described as ICE CREAM! If you love bananas , or other fruits, this is a GREAT way to make a tasty treat with any fruits you freeze! Yonanas has a site with all the information about the benefits of this machine providing numerous health benefits and loads of recipes you can try! For all chocolate-holics you can always add chocolate to the final product, or anything else such as nuts ,sprinkles or a topping to your creations! So what you are reading about this machine are true …this is machine can turn your fruit into a delicious, cool, healthy treat that the whole family will enjoy! To top it all off it is healthy for you too! – Deb
  • The whole family loves It! We purchased this machine a few months ago and use it almost nightly. Through trial and error we realized the secret to creating a great soft serve with this machine is to use ripe (but not overly ripe) frozen bananas with every batch. Second, we only use frozen fruit but let it thaw for 8-10 minutes before feeding it into the machine. Third, we combine bananas and pineapples or bananas, mangos, and blueberries or bananas and strawberries. The end product is creamy and delicious. –Anne P
  • Our family loves our Yonanas! It is just a great way to get a healthy treat. Any time friends come over now I always make Yonanas for dessert and as a result they all have bought one for themselves. Also, their customer service is the BEST! I called with a concern and got treated with care and respect, and also got immediate results beyond what I expected… very rare nowadays! Way to go Yonanas!- Vicki S.




Friday Faves

Hello and Happy Weekend! This week our Friday Faves come from some fans who are counting their points. Thanks to Yonanas they are able to enjoy dessert guilt free! Tell us your favorite guilt-free Yonanas recipe! -Whitney


  • I have sung the Yonanas ice cream maker’s praises from the roof tops. I took samples to work to share with the ladies. All of them want one now too so they will be purchasing a Yonanas for themselves. I love the creaminess and on WW Yonanas ice cream is free! No points. How can you get better than that, awesome tasting and a free, filling food. I am in HEAVEN! I would recommend this product to everyone. –CGS51


  • The Greatest Machine Ever! I purchased this a few weeks ago. I thought will I really use it? Well I use it every day! I love it! I’m on Weight Watchers and fruit is 0 points! I eat all kinds of fruit now and I’m losing weight! The best machine I’ve bought in a long time!” –Meredi


  • I had put a cut-up frozen ripe banana in the freezer so it would be ready when my Yonana arrived. I added mango cubes and mixed berries. The mix came out delicious! Now I have to go buy more bananas! I had heard about the machine from Weight Watchers members since fruit is Zero points, this is a great “instead of ice cream” treat. I found it easy to take apart and clean after use, too. – Susan D
