Not just for bananas - frozen pudding makes great soft serve!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Yonanas Frozen Healthy Dessert Maker - 100% Fruit Soft-Serve Maker (Black and Silver) (Kitchen)
So far I've tried frozen bananas w/ frozen strawberries (a bit icy), frozen bananas with frozen pineapple (less icy), and frozen banana with frozen vanilla pudding - DING, DING, DING - we have a winner! This combo made a smooth, truly soft-serve style dessert that my toddler kept wanting to steal bites of. It was like a banana cream soft serve. I just made instant pudding using 1% milk, froze in an ice cube tray, and threw in about 4-5 frozen cubes with 1.5 frozen bananas. Made about 2 adult-sized servings. So yummy! Next going to crumble graham cracker crumbs on top for the true banana cream pie experience. I'm excited to try butterscotch, pistachio, and chocolate frozen puddings, too! (PS - you don't need the deluxe model Yonanas- the $50 model is all you need for great desserts...)

ooohhh! I never thought of frozen pudding! I use frozen yogurt from smoothie bags, but pudding would be great! Sugar free would be awesome, thank you!

LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE: Um, don't do pure frozen pudding. Tried to skip bananas and it burnt out the motor. Literally. Was smoking for 10 minutes and killed my machine forever. I may get another one in the future and learn from my mistake, but for now, I'm making psuedo-strawberry-shake-smoothies in my blender: frozen strawberries, frozen pineapple, yogurt (plain or vanilla), and light canned coconut milk from Trader Joe's. Delish.

Thanks for the attempted guilt trip and unnecessary negativity! FYI, I used nonfat milk in the pudding, but I'm sure you'll still object to that due to the "animal-product" mention in your comment. So, bottom line, if you don't like my suggestion, don't take it.

I've got to say that sounds delish! I never would have thought to put coconut milk in my smoothies, and I'm not sure why - yum!

Do NOT feel guilty! Even if you use whole milk, or
even,(dare I say it) whipping cream! What I want is
frozen soft-serve, ("soft ice cream")but NOT with all
the chemical stabilizers and what-not, some of which I am allergic to. Half-half and soy milk not
bad at all.
