We're Bananas for Yonanas!

We've been chomping at the bit to tell you what's coming to Market Street and now it's finally here - Yonanas! Yonanas is an ice cream machine that uses frozen bananas, frozen fruits and other ingredients to create healthy soft serve ice cream. Simply, you freeze bananas, push frozen bananas (and other fruit if desired) through the Yonana chute, collect your frozen treat in a bowl and enjoy.

Top 3 reasons why your dietitians love Yonanas!
1. Our dairy-free friends can have a cool and creamy treat.

2. It helps us squeeze in more of our fruit servings each day. Bananas are fat, cholesterol, and sodium free. They are a fantastic source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They contain a large dose of potassium, which is an essential nutrient for keeping your blood pressure at healthy levels and aids in the contraction of your muscles.

3. One-half cup of  banana Yonanas has 100 calories, 0 grams of fat, 14 grams of sugar (from fruit) and 3 grams of fiber (helps to slow down asbsorption of sugar) while a traditional 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream has 180 calories, 8 grams of fat, 21 grams of sugar and 0 grams of fiber. You save 80 calories, 8 grams of fat, and 7 grams of sugar!

Helpful tips:
1. Peel the bananas before you freeze them.
2. Let the bananas/fruit sit out for 10-15 minutes before pushing them thru the chute.
3. Don't use if you are trying to be quiet (it can be a little loud).

Yonanas machines will be popping up in your favorite Market Street within the next few days. Do you have a Yonana? Do you plan to get a Yonana?


Yonanas is easy to operate and easy to clean.

Simply freeze peeled bananas 24 hours in advance.


In no time at all, you have yummy
frozen banana (or other fruit) soft serve.
