I got a Yonanas machine for Christmas three years ago and I love it! My favorite recipe is to mix frozen cherries with the two bananas. YUM!

I did my research and found not to buy the Yonanas machine with the plastic parts (found in most stores) but to go online and buy the one with the metal parts/gears as they will stand up to the rigorous use of the machine. It costs almost twice as much but from the reviews, it sounds like it is worth the investment. Sold on their website and amazon (on amazon read everything in the "item posting' to make sure you are buying the right one)

Not true ice cream, but the version where you pulverize frozen bananas until it looks like soft serve.

How do you use the Ninja for ice cream? I have a ninja LOL it didn't even occur to me! What setting would you use?

Everything that is now easy was once hard.

Save some money and use the blender you already have. You said you have a Ninja and I can promise you that it makes very good banana ice cream.

I LOVE my Yonanas machine. That said, I haven't tried the other. Is it like a magic bullet? I have one of those...The yonanas machine works really well. I have also used frozen berries (you get sort of a sorbet that way). I often add frozen cubes of almond butter too. Yum.

I have the Yonanas and it works well. I saw the machine made by the 'bullet' people and was intrigued. I have a Magic Bullet and use it several times a week to make protein/fruit smoothies for my 90 year old mom.
Which ever machine you decide to try, purchase it at Bed, Bath and Beyond. They have a one year, money back return policy. Keep your receipt and, if you decide that you don't like the machine, take it back.
Better yet, by it with one of their 20% off coupons. I purchased a juicer from them, decided that juicing wasn't for me and took it back. I could not find my receipt but they were able to locate my receipt in their system by using my credit card. Good luck!

I haven't had any experience with dessert makers, however I have chopped up fruit in my food processor, mixed with various liquids (like diet soda or juices like cranberry, orange, etc.) and poured them into popsicle molds -- the combos are endless, and they made great desserts.

Here's an interesting site for popsicles that offers all kinds of suggestions:

tipnut.com/homemade-popsicles/

Enjoy!

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

Any effort is better than no effort!

I am looking to purchase one of these dessert makers emoticon emoticon as I'm allergic to dairy, and wondering what experience some of you Sparkers might have had with both. The reviews seem to have more cons with Yonanas but it has been out on the market longer, and there are different versions. Prices I found were within ten dollars and since I have a Ninja, have no experience with the Bullet brand machines. Comments and recipes welcome please. emoticon
