YonanasPosted: January 13, 2012
Maybe I don’t watch enough commercials on TV, but I’d never heard of a “Yonanas” device until I Googled “Top Gifts for Foodies” and this one came up. Yonanas is essentially a single purpose blender gadget that makes soft-serve dessert out of frozen fresh fruit. Favorable reviews say that the texture is ultra creamy and I love the idea that I could make a late night treat that mimics ice cream or frozen yogurt, with no fat or added sugar!
Detractors say that you really must use frozen bananas to get the very creamy texture, but the web site claims you can use any fruit, and they show a “tropical” dessert made from frozen mango and pineapple. One other naysayer pointed out that as a “single use” appliance, this doesn’t belong in any kitchen, and that we should be able to achieve a similar result with a food processor or blender, BUT I’ve never seen anything resembling soft serve from those appliances.
So, I’m curious, dear readers, does anyone have one of these? How do you like it?
