We're Banana's for Yonana's!

Those of you who know me personally know about my weight loss (release) journey these last 8 months. While I won't bore you with all the details, I will tell you that I have lost 53 pounds through diet and exercise. I feel great! I still have a few more pounds to loose. When I am done and at goal, I'll share some before (uggghhh) and after pictures! That's all I have to say about that. If you'd like more details, please feel free to email me and we can chat.
That being said, I'd love to tell you about something that my family and I have fallen in love with.
It's the Yonana's!
While my family is chowing down on  Haagen Daz (love it)  and Ben & Jerry's (love it)  I am indulging myself  guilt free!
Start freezing some ripe bananas! After reading this you are going to run out and buy one of these machines! If you start freezing the fruit now, you won't have to wait 24 hours to have your treat!

I peeled and then individually wrapped bananas. The bananas are best when they are very ripe! They will be so sweet! I washed, and cleaned a basket of strawberries. They went into the freezer for 24 hours.

Add one banana at a time.  In between adding the banana's add any other frozen fruit and follow with a banana.  Yonana's comes with a recipe book full of great ideas! We've tried strawberries, cantalope, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. If you only use the frozen berries and fruit other than banana's it comes out more like a sorbet. The banana's give the frozen treat more of a creamy consistency which makes you feel like you are eating ice cream!

When you are done putting your frozen fruit through the machine, mix it all up, and make individual servings. You'll be delighted with your healthy, frozen treat.  I should have made this look pretty for you, but we couldn't wait to eat it.

 I am not affliliated with Yonana's in any way! I'm just sharing!

Buon Appetito

  1. I am also trying to lose some pounds that I put on since I retired. I went back to WW and after seeing this Yonana Maker, I decided to give it a try. I love it. If you are not a banana lover, you can make with with just berries, frozen cantelope, or what every frozen fruit you have. My grandson loves it too. I tried a little something different, with the "just fruit" recipe, I added about 2 TBSP of FF yogurt to the made Fruit Ice cream. It gave it a little bit of a creamy consistency.
