Do you enjoy ice cream but not the calories that come with it? See how we made dessert healthy again with the Yonanas Classic Machine here!

How many of you love ice cream but not the calories that come with it? I will freely admit, ice cream is one of those things I have a hard time giving up, making dieting seem far worse, at least to me. While there are ‘low calorie’ ice creams out there, most of them taste pretty odd, often have strange textures, and are honestly not that healthy when you look at the other ingredients. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a better, healthier solution when it came to ice cream? Even better, what if there was an ice cream alternative that was not only healthy, but super easy to make? Recently, we found the perfect solution – the Yonanas Classic Machine.

Yonanas Classic: What is It?

Looking for a quick and easy way to make ice cream at home? If so, we think you will love the Yonanas Classic machine. This fun dessert make turns any frozen fruit into soft serve ice cream. Just add your frozen fruit, any topping or berries you like, put it in the chute, and you have a yummy dessert anyone in the family will enjoy. You can even use it to make other types of ice cream-like desserts by following some of the amazing recipes on the Yonanas website. Best of all, it is super easy to clean since it easily comes apart, and is completely dishwasher safe! To learn more about the Yonanas Classic, make sure to watch the video below!

Yonanas Classic: Overall

I have to admit, this is a pretty cool little machine that can turn just about any fruit into a yummy frozen dessert. All you have to do is freeze your chosen fruit, put them in the machine, and you have a yummy snack that can also count as part of your daily fruit. Best of all, you don’t have to add any sugar or other toppings to make it taste good. Not only do the humans of our household love the Yonanas Classic machine, but the dogs as well. Rather than buying expensive dog ice cream, I just put their favorite fruits in the freezer, put it through the Yonanas, and we have a yummy dog dessert that drives both the girls crazy. The fact that it is also half the cost (or less) of what I can get in the pet store and we have a perfect , inexpensive dessert for the entire family. If you are looking for a low calorie way to make dessert part of any diet, we highly recommend the Yobananas Classic.

    This is good, and I never thought of using it for a dog! Ages ago I worked in a juice bar, we made “ice cream” with bananas, we’d add a little cashew butter and honey, too, and sometimes a few other fruits. So good.

    I bet they love this! What a neat idea. I wouldn’t have thought about using one to make treats for my pups! 🙂

    I would love to try this with frozen mangos. Mangos when ripe are so perfectly sweet that there is no need for added sure. Turned into ice cream would be delicious!

    I love it and this is looks like it’s good and works with all types of fruit not just animals humans too I would love to own one.I would like to give the opportunity for the kids to explore making dessert for themselves

    I have wanted one of these for about 2 years now and no one seems to get it for me for Christmas or my birthday. I would absolutely love this. The first thing we would use to make it would be bananas and strawberries!!

    I love the idea of being able to create a healthy yet delicious alternative to traditional ice cream. I can think of so many tasty flavor combinations too!

    I’ve heard of Yonanas before – my sister-in-law borrowed one from a friend once. I’ve never used one myself, but they seem amazing and the options are kind of endless!

    I can see my little dog eating his frozen treat and me eating mine all at the same time. I can eat healthy and he can be happy!

    This machine looks like so much fun and provides a healthy frozen treat. I think both my two legged and four legged kids would love this as they often beg for ice cream.

    I bet my dog will love it. I have had the banana before and it was superb!

    The dessert looks delightful and I like the idea of being able to use the raspberries and blueberries from my garden that I always seem to have so many of to turn into a healthy treat. Homemade means less sugar and I like that too.

    This sounds so easy and fun! I love that it is easy clean!

    Its healthy for dogs. I like this product.

    I love the idea of doing this for the dog in addition for the humans. It is a good way to boost some good nutrients and stay cool.

    I’ve seen a lot of yogurt markers ,they were complicated and overpriced ,and so big, this looks compact and easy.

  16. Debra S August 30, 2016 at 9:30 pm - Reply

    I’m telling you, the fact that it is easy to clean really really is the deciding factor in making me want one bad. I love desserts but love to eat healthy and this would be PERFECT.

    I would love this I’d use banana and strawberries.

    Yonanas sounds like a great way to make a healthy treat! I love that you don’t have to add extra sugar to make it taste good.

    This would be perfect for Hubz and me. Of course we are concerned about eating healthy, but, more than that, this would be an easy way to make a small serving of ice cream when we like.

  20. lisa August 31, 2016 at 2:05 pm - Reply

    I’ve heard of, but haven’t tried this yet. I love the idea of using fresh fruit to make an ice cream type dessert. I’d like to try it with ripe, white peaches. I also like that the price is very reasonable.

    I had never thought of making soft serve for my dog before! What a good idea.

  22. Dana August 31, 2016 at 4:30 pm - Reply

    I would never have thought of making treats for the dogs in this. That’s such a good idea. I love frozen fruit that way.

    This would be fun and healthy and a great way to cool off.

    Oh man, my pups would go gaga over this! I didn’t even know these existed. I really want to get one soon. This would be a great break from the heat down here in the south too!

    I’ve had my eye on this great product for awhile. I saw it demonstrated at a store and decided I would buy it when I had the money!

    My daughter uses a blender with frozen bananas and fruits. She would really enjoy having this Yonanas to use.

    I would love to have a Yonanas. We eat way too much ice cream so having a healthier substitute would be great. Not to mention how much money we would save too.

    It looks like you don’t have to put anything in there but Fruit, but can you add Cream if you want to?

    It looks awesome, and I have a Puppy that I am sure would love this!

      No, this is for frozen fruit only. 🙂

    I don’t have a dog, just a cat (shhh she thinks she is a human and the owner of this house) but I never would have thought of making this for my pet.
    I guess since they do sell dog “ice cream” I should have thought it was possible…. good to see your babies enjoying it.

    Yonanas looks so amazing to use for people and their pets. I had not seen it used for pets before but I know my 3 dogs would really love to have some.

    It would be great to have a frozen treat at any time. I like eating organic fruits and have some frozen all the time. So many combinations could be made without leaving home.

  42. Christa Sloan September 10, 2016 at 1:37 pm - Reply

    I think it is really hard to give up ice cream for dieting, and this seems like the perfect solution. I am worried about the countertop space this would be taking up though.

  43. Amy Green September 10, 2016 at 4:27 pm - Reply

    This sounds like so much fun! My whole family loves desserts like smoothies and shakes. It would be neat to have a gadget like this to be able to add real fruit at home.

    My dog LOVES watermelon and I can envision her eating soft serve watermelon. It would be her idea of heaven.

    I honestly didn’t know you could make ice cream with this. For some reason I thought it was a yogurt only machine. You’ve opened my eyes thanks!

    Yum! 😍 This machine sounds incredible!! My kids would absolutely love it if I made them “ice cream” more often because it’s actually good for them! 🙂 I would definitely love to see what delicious fruits I could try!

    This would be so perfect for our family.and I love that it’s so much more healthy than regular ice cream. I love that I can also use it to make treats for my furbabies to help them stay cool as well.

    I have wanted one of these for quite sometime now for when my granddaughter comes on the weekends. She loves to make ice cream but this is so much healthier and so much easier. This is an awesome addition.

    What a nice healthy treat for the pups 🙂 I have a lot of frozen raspberries and plums from our yard in the freezer that I’d love to make frozen ice cream with. Yummy!

    This sounds delicious. I would love to use this machine to make some soft serve ice cream for me and my fur baby. I would use bananas because we both love them!
