FAQs

FAQs

Q: Is a Yonanas treat really healthier than ice cream?
A: Yes! A Yonanas treat can be a healthier option than ice cream for a number of reasons.

Q: Why are bananas considered a ''super food''?
A: Bananas contain fiber and potassium and are a natural source of vitamins A, B6, C, and iron.

Q: How do I make treats with Yonanas treat maker?
A: Simply peel and freeze overripe bananas. Keep in mind that over-ripe, (cheetah-spotted) bananas make the best treats because of their sweetness. Next, turn on Yonanas maker and insert frozen bananas. For flavored Yonanas treats, insert frozen fruit after inserting one banana. For a softer version of Yonanas treats, thaw frozen bananas and other fruits for a few minutes before using.

Q: Does the machine freeze bananas?
A: No. Before you use the Yonanas maker, you'll want to peel and freeze your bananas. Each freezer is different, but the general rule is that you want to freeze your bananas and other frozen fruit for 24 hours before making Yonanas treats. If your Yonanas treats come out mushy, the fruit isn't frozen enough. If your fruit is rock hard, give it a few minutes to thaw.

Q: Do you have to use bananas?
A: No. There are a bunch of tasty non-banana Yonanas recipes in the recipe book. You can start with other frozen fruits like mangoes, strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, or blueberries by themselves or in some wacky combination. Keep experimenting and you'll find combinations that hit the spot.

Q: Why should I buy a Yonanas maker? Can't my blender and/or food processor can make Yonanas treats?
A: The technology of the Yonanas treat maker creates the ''ice-cream-like'' texture. A food processor will shred the fruit and create a sticky consistency, while a blender requires a liquid to be added to the bananas, creating a ''smoothie'' like consistency.

Q: Do Yonanas treats taste like bananas?
A: Yonanas treats take on the taste of the other ingredients that you mix in. Ripe bananas carry a very mild banana flavor. Mixing in strawberries makes Yonanas treats taste like strawberries, mixing in mint chocolate chips makes Yonanas treats taste like mint-chocolate-chip ice cream.

Q: How big is the Yonanas maker?
A: The Yonanas frozen treat maker is roughly the same size as a blender. The upper portion of the Yonanas maker is removable, so the entire machine can easily be stored in a relatively small space.

Q: Is the Yonanas maker easy to clean?
A: Yes. We made the parts that need to be cleaned dishwasher safe. After using, simply twist off the upper portion of the Yonanas maker and unscrew the cap to expose those internal parts that need cleaning. Quickly rinse, wash with soap, or put the dishwasher-safe parts in the dishwasher so you're ready to go next time.

Q: Which way does the gasket go into the bottom cap?
A: There's a top and bottom to the gasket. The top measures 3-3/4 inches across, while the bottom is wider and comes in at 4-1/4 inches. When putting the chute assembly together after cleaning, you insert the bottom of the gasket into the bottom cap. If you're inserting it correctly, the gasket will fit snuggly into the bottom cap. An improperly placed gasket, one that's upside down, will sit on the bottom cap like a turtle on its back. An improperly placed gasket will not properly seal and could tear.

Q: What colors of Yonanas makers are available?
A: Right now, we have just the silver-black model. That will surely change at some point, but we don�t know when.

Q: What is the product guarantee?
A: Healthy Foods LLC, the parent company of the Yonanas Frozen Treat Maker, issues a 1-year limited warranty from the date of purchase. The warranty says this product will be free from manufacturer's defects in material and workmanship. Healthy Foods LLC, at its sole discretion, will repair or replace this product or any component of the product found to be defective during the warranty period. Replacement will be made with a new or refurbished product or component. If the Yonanas maker is misused, dropped, or damaged by fault of user, the warranty can be declared void. The product should be returned to us in original packaging along with proof of purchase and description of malfunction.

Q: How does the Yonanas maker save you money?
A: Bananas are very affordable and ''simply banana'' Yonanas treats will cost around fifty cents per serving. It's both tasty and inexpensive to add other fruits, mint chocolate chips, etc.!

Q: What's up with the machine? The machine continues to shut off while the power is on.
A: The most likely reason for this to happen is that the safety feature has kicked in. The machine won't work unless the chute assembly is locked in at the 12-o'clock position. To remedy this, rotate the chute assembly counter-clockwise until the chute clicks into the locked position. The interlock mechanism in the base prevents the motor from turning on when the chute isn't in place.

Q: I put in a banana and nothing came out. What happened?
A: The banana is most likely there and is simply waiting for more ingredients. Make sure you use two frozen bananas to push through the machine. If using fruit, use one frozen banana then frozen fruit, alternating and finishing with a frozen banana. A quick stir in the bowl will ensure that all the ingredients are mixed together.

Q: How may I contact you?
A: If you have additional questions, you can email Yonanas at info@yonanas.com, or you can call us toll free at 855-YONANAS (855-966-2627).

K37862 - Yonanas Healthy Frozen Treat Maker w/ Cookbook 4.1 5 120 120
This Machine is Awesome!! I bought this around Christmas for my two Gluten/Lactose Intolerant grown kids. They love it! They don't have to buy just LF Vanilla ice cream at the store...now they can use fruit and get some fiber along with their ice cream type treat. It is wonderful for them. Easy to use and they love the results. It is very similar to ice cream in texture, and they now have lots of options, and it is a healty treat too! Thanks for bringing this to us, QVC! 03-16-13
Fantastic! Gave this to my boyfriend this past Christmas, and we both love it! He's always looking for healthy ways to appease his sweet-tooth, and had embarked on a very healthy eating plan...this fits the bill! And for me, who doesn't love the rich and fattiness of ice-cream, I love the clean, refreshing taste of desserts made with frozen, fresh fruit. We've tried several recipes--berries & bananas, peaches, pineapple, with and without chocolate chips, all were delicious and satisfying without eating tons or tons of calories. Came back for more, but sorry to see Q doesn't sell it anymore....however, look around or search online, many a department store and BB&B sell it too. 02-12-13
Too much gets stuck in the machine I was hoping this would be a great machine, but so much fruit gets stuck in the machine, probably as much as a whole banana. Other than that, it wasn't bad, but not good enough to keep. 02-06-13
Too bad QVC stopped selling I bought this at a big box store and probably the best $50 I've ever spent. I've had it for 4 weeks and have used it almost everyday, even in the cold Midwest winter. I go through so much frozen fruit that it can get expensive but now I'm buying the huge bags to save on trips to the store! I haven't tried any of the 'recipes' but I don't think that's necessary, just put it what kind of fruit you like. I have used strawberries, bananas, mangos and peaches. It does work best if you let the fruit sit out for some time to soften to back it easier to push through. I don't think it's all that easy to clean though. Since I use it nearly everyday, I let it soak until I need it the next time. Love it! 02-04-13
Healthy, flavorful treat We absolutely love our yonana. My husband makes a huge batch and freezes it in individual portions so he doesn't have to make it every night. I don't miss ice cream at all! My favorites are banana strawberry and banana peach. Great with mixed berries too. I ate very little fruit before-now I eat it everyday. 01-20-13
Just love it! This is the best ice cream. My son love it. He will never eat that many fruits a day as he eats now. All natural and done in no time. Just keep frozen fruits in your freezer. Easy clean up. Here in TX they sale huge bag of brown banana's for a $ 1.00. Freeze it!. great sweet ice cream. 01-20-13
SUPER This is the best product ever.. It does excatly what it says .Healthy frozen desserts.. the best way is to just let your frozen fruit set out at room temperature for 10 minutes.. then make your dessert.. super easy clean up.. 5 stars..... LOVE IT 01-17-13
Yonanas Received this as a gift and have enjoyed the using it. Have come up with some good healthy alternatives for my sweet tooth. Hope QVC carries the product again, would like to send this as a gift to friends. I did read some of the negative reviews of the product, and can say I have not had the same experience. 01-11-13
VITAMIX is way better!!!!.... Read most of the bad reviews & they are right. Mushed frozen fruit isn't very creamy, nor tasty. It's not at all like eating ice cream, if that's what you'd envisioned. . If you put a piece of fruit thru it, it doesn't mix w/a sweet banana or yogart, so not very good, in my opinion. I did add chocolate pieces, wondered why it didn't come out & into my bowl, but later found that all the chocolate had stuck to the inside blade, along w/the fiberous part of the fruit. I'm returning this 'not-so-great machine.' I have a Vita-Mix & would much rather spend the $ on something I'm happy with, than not. Save your $, apply it towards a Vita-Mix when it's the TSV. Too bad they don't have who'd this would be a perfect gift for, 'my enemy.' Lol 01-08-13
The Greatest Machine Ever! I purchased this a few weeks ago. I thought will I really use it? Well I use it everyday! I love it! I'm on Weight Watchers and fruit is 0 points! I eat all kinds of fruit now and I'm losing weight! The best machine I've bought in a long time! 01-07-13
Very happy with my purchase I have had this machine a couple of weeks now. I love it. I use it every night while my husband has pie, I have my yonana dessert. There are many different recipes but I love the strawberry banana. Sometimes I top with chocolate chips and sometimes not. I look forward to my healthy dessert. Thanks QVC for the Yonana machine. 01-06-13
I haven't eaten icecream since I got this!! I like this because it fills my need for "sweet" after dinner so I don't go for icecream, but it's healthy!! The only thing I don't care for is that you have to thaw out the fruit for quite a while so you can't just decide to have some. You have to plan. My husband said at first that he didn't like it but we added a little splenda and he likes it now. Give it a try. 01-05-13
