Everyone in my family LOVES ice cream. My husband used to have a bowl every single night (now he limits it to a couple times a week). All three of our children LOVE it. Honestly, I am not a huge ice cream fan, but like a little bit every now and then.
I was recently online looking for a way to make our own frozen yogurt (so it is slightly healthier) and found a machine called Yonanas. This little machine claimed to use ONLY fruit to make a frozen dessert almost exactly like soft-serve ice cream. I was immediately intrigued. I poured over reviews, looked at competing machines, and finally decided to take the plunge and purchase it. We have already used it several times and it has been a huge hit! Since then, I found a post on Happy Hooligans where a regular blender was used with nearly-identical results!
This Ice Cream made of only fruit has revolutionized our dessert-eating experiences at our house. No dairy…no added sugar…just fruit and that is it! And it is even healthy enough that I would let my kids eat it for breakfast! 🙂
Here is what you’ll need:
Strawberries (or any other type of fruit)
A Yonanas machine or a regular blender
Ice Cream Cones
1. Freeze your (peeled) bananas and strawberries overnight. The instructions say to use spotted bananas for the best texture.
2. Let the fruit thaw for about 10 minutes before getting started. Then stick it in the top of the Yonanas machine and let ‘er rip! Put one banana in and plunge down…then some strawberries. Then the next banana and more strawberries…and so on.
The machine takes care of the rest!
3. Use an ice cream scoop to put it on an ice cream cone for a more authentic ice cream experience. 🙂
Little Sister is a fan!
…and so are her brothers!
It is so healthy, you could even serve it for breakfast! 🙂
Have you tried fruit ice cream?
