5.0 out of 5 stars I've Made Banana "Ice Cream" for Years, but Yonanas Makes It the Best, September 19, 2011
This review is from: Yonanas 901 Deluxe Ice Cream Treat Maker, Black/Silver (Kitchen)
I've been eating banana "ice cream" for over 20 years now. Usually I make it in either a normal food processor or in a Vitamix. So every time I saw the Yonanas, I would think...nah, I don't need this. Everybody kept telling me that it gave it a different texture, so I finally decided to try it from one of the online shopping sites--as I could return it if needed. I am so glad I did! The Yonanas really does give it a better texture--more ice cream like. It's hard to describe, but much smoother and more emulsified (even though there's nothing in bananas to be emulsified.) My kids and I have been enjoying it a lot--both plain and with other frozen fruits mixed in. I really really enjoy it. Clean up is pretty easy too (you disassemble the machine by turning the main black bit counter-clockwise (OK, might be clockwise--but it's marked on the machine. :))

Our favorite mix-ins are coconut, mini chocolate chips, and sprinkles. (My kids are young.) Another great treat is to freeze pineapple spears or chunks and use that along with the bananas. Add in some coconut and it's like a pina colada.

To see if you even like banana ice cream, peel two spotted bananas (like for banana bread) and put them in a ziploc baggie in the freezer. The next day, take them out and either put them in your Cuisinart or blender. You might need to add 1-2 Tablespoons of milk (although the Yonanas does not need this). Blend until a paste. It also makes a great food for teething babies. No sugar, just bananas--but nice and cold.

This was a very helpful review because I have the Vitamix and too say nah. However, I just might give it a try.
