We love this! We make what we call frozen smoothies with it by putting the bananas through and then other types of fruit like strawberries to make a wonderful dessert. I have added candied nuts, dried fruits and chocolate chips to it as an added bonus. We also made “ice cream sandwiches” using the pureed fruit by using lace cookies putting the puree in-between them and put them in the freezer for a couple hours.
I can’t say the pureed fruit tastes like ice cream but I can say it is wonderful and clean-up is a breeze; much easier than using my blender. I haven’t had any issues with the machine to this point. The machine came with a booklet with some starter recipes in it and I also purchased a separate booklet.
Used for the first time about 20 minutes ago. I let the fruit sit out for like 2-3 minutes then started to put it in. After making it I just opened it all up, because as with anything that has blades, things get stuck. I just used a spoon, scooped the bit into my bowl from the blades and from the ‘washers’… then just rinsed under warm water, no mess at all, much easier than a blender IMO. Don’t expect 10000% creamy goodness, but it is more like 90% creamy… get it if that is what you want, an easy, tasty, cool way to eat fruit… otherwise go spend $200+ on something else.~ Bradley R.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I already have a Ninja blender but I feel this makes a better consistency of ice cream out of fruit, plus I feel it is a lot easier to clean. The machine is light weight and easy to store. It is pretty loud when running but since I live alone, that isn’t an issue. For me, this is soo worth the money.~ Jennipher
My expectations weren't very high for this product but was I wrong! The first time I used it I only had 2 bananas and no other fruit, so I used some chocolate - boy was that good!! The fruit comes out just like soft ice cream! I used 2 bananas and that was too much for me, so the 2nd time I used one banana and some strawberries and it was much better! A lot more filling than ice cream! Next I'm going to try pineapple and a touch of coconut. I highly recommend the Yonana machine! I used to use a juicer - no more! Veggies and fruit with the Yonana machine!~ West820
I saw this on In The Kitchen with David and was intrigued! I ordered it and think that it is by far the best thing I ever purchased from QVC! It is easy to use, cleans up in seconds and provides my family with endless healthy, delicious and easy dessert options!!! We absolutely recommend the Yonanas Healthy Frozen Treat Maker to everyone.~ Richard C.
For fat free, sugar free, additive free ice cream, this is the machine for you. It is as simple as can be. Nothing complicated. Easy clean up. The base is frozen bananas, but you really don't taste them. You can add berries, pineapple, chocolate. You name it. It's GOOD! It is a good way to get more fruits into yours and your family’s diet.
I would, and have, recommended this to anyone and everyone.
The Yonanas Treat Maker is a great way to make healthy desserts for the whole family. It is easy to use and clean and the "ice cream" is very tasty. The price is quite reasonable. My husband, kids and grandkids all enjoyed the Yonana's treats. Definitely a winner.~
This product is spectacular. I am always dieting but need something a little extra at night. My husband loves ice cream and I am always tempted. This product is a healthy way to satisfy us both. I am going to buy another one for my daughter who has children that will rather have ice cream than fruit. Voila problem solved. Thank you for carrying this product at such a reasonable price.~ Southern Panda
