I honestly thought the Yonana Machine was a joke when I first saw it. The idea of taking something as simple as a few frozen bananas and some fruit and running them through a machine and having it spit out a frozen desert that rivaled ice cream was absurd to me.
But I ordered one anyway just out of pure curiosity. After the first try I was shocked. It really does come out creamy and smooth like ice cream. Even my non-healthy eating buddy that usually turns up his nose as anything even remotely good for you loved it.
How Much Healthier is a Bowl of Yonana Than Ice Cream?
This info comes from the Yonana website, and perfectly illustrates why, if you are trying to feed you or your kids healthy foods, that you should be using a Yonana machine!
Yonanas is made using only fruit. (There is no added sugar, cream or other dairy added to this delicious treat).
Simply banana yonanas contains zero grams of fat. An equal serving of soft serve ice-cream can have your buttons popping with 23 grams of fat in a 1 cup serving.
A cup of simply banana yonanas will have 200 healthy calories as opposed to some brands of ice cream which can easily exceed 400 calories in a serving. More than 400 calories in some ice creams? Yikes!
Yonanas doesn’t contain any cholesterol. Ice cream can contain upwards of 80mg cholesterol in a serving. Watch out arteries!
Yonanas doesn’t contain any sodium. Comparatively, some soft serve ice creams have more than just a dash of sodium and some have more than 100 mg in a single serving!
Yonanas contains fiber, vitamins, and minerals in each tasty serving.
Honestly, store bought ice cream is so full of junk that I hesitate to buy it any more just on the chemicals issue alone.
