Win a Yonanas Frozen Treat Machine!

Yonanas machineA creamy, frozen treat without derailing your diet – you can thank Yonanas!

You all know how much we love Yonanas machines here at Appetite For Health, if you’re just joining us – we go bananas for Yonanas! We’ve got two Yonanas Frozen Treat Makers to share this time (each a $50 value!). Entry details below.

Just because the summer is long gone, doesn’t mean we aren’t still craving frozen treats.  Here’s one you won’t sweat over:

Chai Spice Yonanas


  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala (found in natural and specialty food stores)


  1. Sprinkle garam masala over frozen bananas
  2. Insert frozen bananas into machine
  3. Stir in bowl to combine

Not only is this frozen treat low in fat and added sugars, it’s also rich in antioxidants!  Garam masala, a North Indian spice blend contains cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, clove and nutmeg.  Research suggests that cinnamon is useful in battling stress so instead of going for that Texas-sized margarita, whip up a bowl of cinnamon-infused Yonanas frozen treat!  You’ll satisfy your cravings for something smooth and cold without doing major dietary damage.

The recipes don’t stop there.  Believe me, with a Yonanas machine creativity seems to just take over. Check out the Yonanas site for exciting recipes. Don’t like bananas? No problem!  Mix in mangoes, raspberries or even kiwi for a tasty homemade sorbet.
