it makes what this primal crowd of mine calls “bananas ice cream”. yes, it makes nearly the same product that we do in our blender, but with a superior result. also, i don’t like to waste the use of my blender (which is old, yucky, hard to clean, and limited on its final days) on frozen bananas. at times, it takes my blender 5 or so minutes just to make one serving of bananas ice cream, stopping the blender frequently to mash the bananas into the blade.
flash to yonanas. this thing is awesome. i’m not normally impressed with single item specific devices, but i love this. what a healthy way to push non-dairy treats into our ice cream heavy diets. let’s not forget how wonderful this could be with a waffle breakfast! -i’m just sayin!
it comes with a recipe book, though every “recipe” is flexible, and making your own up is totally legit.
blend cocoa sprinkled frozen bananas for chocolate yonanas.
blend it with any other favorite fruit that is frozen for a sorbet.
spread into the bottom of a pie tin lined with your favorite crust for ice cream pie.
between 2 grain free cookies or brownies for a sandwich.
throw in fresh mint for mint ice cream.
pour booze over it like grandma did for “kahlua ice cream”. (she has the good ideas!)
the recipe we enjoyed tonight was tropical tease. really simple, and super tasty. this was incredibly refreshing on a hot night, i think it would be a relief on a super hot afternoon playing out in the sun. oh, and don’t skip the coconut!
this recipe is taken directly from the yonanas recipe page. there is a wealth of simple, delicious, and incredibly nutritious recipes on that site. enjoy!
