I believe my kids have been eating a fruit based “ice cream” for so long, they may have forgotten was real, whole milk, extra sugar, creamy dreamy ice cream tastes like.  Ok, they have’t forgotten, but we do make fruit based ice cream more than any other dessert!  And because we have been eating so much ice cream, I’ve been eyeing the Yonanas machine for probably 4 years!  No kidding.  I don’t know why I just never bought one. I saw it at the grocery store a million times. It’s not that expensive ($40 on Amazon).  I hesitated not necessarily because of the price, but because I have a small kitchen and wasn’t sure if I needed another appliance!  I have an amazing blender, and so I never bought one.

But now I have one! Do I love it? YES! Do my kids love to “make ice cream”? Yes! Will they eat it? Mostly.  I’m not going to lie.  When you use bananas as your creamy ice cream base, it IS going to taste like bananas. Which was fine by me!  I love bananas.  I love them fresh, frozen, in smoothies, and dipped in chocolate.  My kids are hit and miss. Some days they like it, some days they don’t. It’s just the nature of children.

So, it is fun to squish your frozen fruit through the yonanas machine.  In fact, the kids were fighting over who got to make it.  All you do is set your frozen fruit out for about 10-15 minutes, so it gets a bit soft. Add the other ingredients for the ice cream you’ll make.  We tried mint chocolate, cookies and cream, raspberry, blueberry, and plain chocolate.. all before we tried this gingerbread one.

Then, when the fruit is slightly soft, feed it through the machine. If you don’t have a machine, of course use your blender! A yonana machine isn’t going to be a deal breaker here. You can definitely have delicious ice cream the traditional way.

You can crumble it and add it to the machine.  You could use the cookies as a dipper. You could sandwich the ice cream between two cookies, or you could just eat them together.  So fun, festive, and best of all, healthy!
