Friday Faves

heart-fruit

 

On a diet? We know it is difficult to deprive your sweet tooth & combat cravings! Here are some stories from our friends have used yonanas to turn 100% fruit into guilt-free, healthy desserts that won’t blow your diet!

 

This Is Great! “This little machine is an amazing new kitchen must have. I love the soft serve type consistency it produces with the frozen bananas. The only limitation is your own imagination. I’m enjoying creating healthy new deserts. It’s great being on a diet and not having to deprive yourself of very tasty deserts. Way to go Yonanas!!!” – ~Z~

 

Cannot Believe How Fabulous “I still can’t believe that this works. I look forward to finishing even the most tasty meal so that I can use this device. It makes the most delicious dessert without adding sugar or any sweeteners. What a way to diet!” – judk1

 

Tasty and healthy! “Normally the two words tasty and healthy do not go together, but with the Yonanas it does. Tried it out for the first time and it was a hit with both me and my mom. I just started a diet and was having trouble fitting enough fruit and or vegetables in my diet. Saw this for the umpteenth time and new that I had to try it. Was glad I did! So easy to use and clean. All the parts came apart very easily and really all you had to do is give it a good rinse and it’s good to go. This machine is a must try for someone who is on a restricted diet and has a sweet tooth.” – marsscout

Blueberry Heart

Want a way to get your whole family to eat more fruit? This week’s Friday Faves come from folks who have found a secret weapon: Yonanas! Trick picky eaters by turning 100% fruit into a treat that looks, tastes and feels like soft-serve ice cream!

 

Wonderful! “Love this! My hubby never eats fruit and since we received this he has had so much fruit! We both enjoy making different treats every night! No more cookies and cake for us! We can’t get enough of this. If you’re on the fence about buying this go for it! Wish I could give it 10 stars!” – patkriv

 

This is amazing!!! “ It really does turn fruit into a delicious frozen “ice cream”. We couldn’t wait to try it. It was so easy to do, and the fruit comes out exactly the consistency of soft ice cream. I am on Weight Watcher’s and fruit is “free” – no points to count. So every bowl of these luscious concoctions is a guilt free treat. What a great way to get more fruit into your diet!! We made banana-strawberry, then banana and mixed berries and just plain banana. I have oranges, mangoes and peaches in the freezer now. Can’t wait to try some new blends. The machine goes together/comes apart very easily and cleans up in a flash. Great ideas in the recipe book, too. Totally cool!!!!!!” – Deegee54

 

Love My Yonanas! “I got my yonana a few days ago and LOVE it. It works like I thought it would. I love the fact it is fast and easy. Also, you don’t have to add anything with fat into it unless you just want too. You can have it either way. It is the perfect way to get more fruit in the diet so that you get the fiber and nutrients. I also love that you can buy plenty of fruit and you don’t have to worry about it becoming rotten before you eat it all because you can just freeze it. The consistency is so very similar to ice cream; so, that way you feel like you are getting such a wonderful treat, which you are. It feels like your cheating when your not. Love it!!!!!!!!!” - princess tinkerbell

Friday Faves

appleheart

With Earth Day and Arbor Day this week, everyone is looking for ways to reduce waste. Yonanas is a great way to use up the overripe fruit and bananas that you might normally throw away. This week’s Friday Faves comes from friends that are getting the most from their fruit and wasting less with Yonanas!

 

WOW, what fun. “I couldn’t wait for my machine to arrive. We are always throwing out bananas. Now I won’t waste any fruit, not when I have this machine. It works really easy, clean-up is so simple. Very well made little machine, not thrown together and hope it works kind of thing. I made the banana strawberry. Really good. Can’t wait to try the rest of the recipes, the book is fantastic. Thanks DOLE. I got mine in Neon Green, because I wanted a fun color for a fun machine.” – Lpincarolina

 

A great little machine right price and easy to use! “I was thrilled that it was so easy to use and clean. Also, it made the fruit the same way it looked on the demo on TV! It was creamy like ice cream. I am happy to be able to use my fruit this way so it doesn’t get wasted…too many times things don’t get eaten. Now, I will just freeze and have it when I feel like it. It will be good for the kids, too. This is one of my best purchases, I think. Very happy with it and would recommend to others! I have only just used it (once) because I just purchased it but, even after using only once I can see it is a good product. Thank you!” – littleelf

 

Great product! “It allows me to make use of all the frozen bananas accumulating in my freezer and to use my imagination! No wasted fruit. I have experimented with many different fruits and the results have been a treat to the palate. No fruit will ever be wasted again in this household.” – EPods

It is always so fun to see people’s reactions the first time they try Yonanas. People are often surprised by the creamy, soft-serve texture of Yonanas! Were you? Share your story here!


FANTASTIC!  “
We were in Bed bath and Beyond and this lady was demoing the product and asked if I wanted to try some ice cream. I tried it and was blown away at how good it was. Then she told me it was just bananas and strawberries. I told her she was crazy. It was too creamy and sweet to be just fruit, but no joke, it was just frozen bananas and frozen strawberries. It is a great gift and worth it to watch the kids make their own healthy desserts. If you can pick one up on sale, do it because it is nice and very easy to clean and makes very healthy treats.” – P. Day


Nice! 
 “We are amazed at how creamy the results are with this. My personal fave is banana with black cherry. We like it so much that I bought one as a gift for a relative after we used ours.” – Gail M Kraker


Yummy ice cream taste without the guilt!
  “This machine really does transform bananas and other fruit into delicious creamy ice cream in a matter of minutes. Pure yumminess without all the extra ingredients and calories of real ice cream. Very easy to use and even easier to clean up! Our family loves it.” – HMS from Ohio


Delicious!
 “So glad I bought this! It makes the most smooth, creamy delicious frozen treat ever! No additives, no junk – just the good stuff I feed into the machine- but so much more delicious than the fruit itself. Very easy to assemble. Very easy to clean. Very easy to operate. Plug it in, one button – on/off!” – sootymills

It makes our day when we hear from friends who love their yonanas so much that they can’t help but share it with everyone they know. This week’s Friday Faves come from people who have packed up their yonanas and brought it to work for a fun yonanas office party! Do you SHARE your yonanas?

 

Rave reviews!  “A co-worker brought YONANAS into work…and it was a big hit! We all love sweets but also are watching our sweet intake! Fills the bill! We made about 3 different favors and all turned out well. It was also fun coming up with new ideas. I expect a lot of YONANAS being ordered soon. Great idea!” – Pinest


Love, Love, My Yonanas  “I received Yonanas as a gift. It is the BEST!!!! We got 25 overripe bananas for $2 at the local grocer. We also picked up some pre-frozen berry mix. We were not prepared for how delicious this was going to be. My family is hooked. I took it to work for my girlfriends to try out. They loved it so much that we all pitched in and got one for our kitchen at work. What a wonderful low cal treat. Also it is very easy to clean the entire front comes off for easy rinsing and washing. If it was hard to clean I wouldn’t use it soooooo much. Thanks QVC!!!!” – Jknroche


Great Product – BUY IT 
“I purchased this product for my husband because he loves ice cream but ice cream doesn’t love him. So I thought this would be the perfect solution. We are very happy with the Yonanas. It is very easy to use and easy to clean. I have taken the machine to work several times and everyone loves it and plans on purchasing their own Yonanas.” – WJSHCSLADYS

Happy weekend to all of our fans! This week our Friday Faves comes from friends with dietary restrictions that are able to enjoy creamy, frozen treats again with Yonanas! Have you been able to satisfy your sweet tooth with Yonanas despite food intolerances and allergies? We would love to hear your story!

 

Exceptional   “I was skeptical at first, but now that I have used it, I’m sold. Being the parent of a child with dairy food allergies, ice cream/yogurt places are off limits to us. But now with the Yonanas machine we have “ice cream” every day. Our freezer is full of frozen fruit ready to make a healthy tasty frozen treat at any time. Great product.” – KC632

 

Fits My Needs   “I love ice cream! Unfortunately I have problems with eating dairy. This machine allows me to satisfy my love of ice cream in a very healthy way. Easy to use and clean and makes good use of fruit that might not be eaten before it gets too ripe. Great for a last minute dessert, just serve with a piece of cake, brownie, cookie…the ideas are endless.” – simpy1170

 

Love this!   “Does exactly what it was made to do. I bought one for my aunt and my mother-in-law too. My mother-in-law is allergic to high fructose corn syrup, but loves ice cream. She can have her ice cream and eat it too! :-)” – StarliteW
