Shake your Bon Bons

The company is often asked if you can make extra yonanas and freeze it to enjoy later in the week.  Of course, it only takes seconds to create a delicious soft-serve like bowl of your favorite yonanas recipe, but we understand that it is sometimes easier to just make extra and scoop later!

When I was asked to create holiday recipes I tried to create healthy treats that were simple and fast.  That is when the customer request to make extra yonanas popped into my head.  Why not create your favorite yonanas treat (maybe Strawberry or Blackberry Vanilla Bean), freeze it in a storage container, and then scoop out and drizzle with chocolate and top with nuts?   It looks fancy and it’s simple to create.  After enjoying a couple of these yummy and healthy treats you should feel great about shaking your bon bons this holiday season!

For the PB&J YonanBonBons double the Peanut Butter & Jelly yonanas recipe below.  Freeze in a container and let thaw a few minutes before using an ice cream scoop to shape bon bons.  Drizzle dark chocolate over the top and sprinkle chopped peanuts before the chocolate solidifies.  To help hold the round shape, scoop the yonanas into a cupcake paper liner, drizzle chocolate and refreeze.  Remove paper to place on a platter to serve.

(note: you can purchase chocolate sauce that solidifies instantly if you prefer)

Ingredients:

2 frozen over-ripe bananas, 3⁄4 cup frozen mixed berries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, 1 tbsp room temperature peanut butter.

Directions:
1. Insert one frozen banana
2. Add 3⁄4 cup mixed berries
3. Insert second frozen banana
4. Insert 1 tbsp peanut butter into chute

Stir in bowl to combine.
