How Do You Get Your Five-A-Day?

How Do You Get Your Five-A-Day?

International health guidelines suggest we eat at least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day – but how many of us get that many?

With a yonanas machine, getting your five serves of fruit and veg has become a whole lot easier. A yonanas turns frozen bananas and other nutritious frozen fruit into deliciously creamy treat that looks and tastes like ice cream, without any fat, cholesterol, additives, artificial colours, preservatives or added sugar.

Try these tantalising recipes that will curb your sweet tooth, and give you a healthy serving of fruit – making your new year’s resolutions much easier to stick to!

Peach & Blueberry
2 frozen overripe bananas
¾ cup of frozen peaches
½ cup of frozen blueberries

Insert alternating pieces of banana, peach and blueberries into the yonanas machine.

Cinnamon Cocoa
2 frozen overripe bananas
2 teaspoons of dark cocoa
½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Combine cocoa and cinnamon, sprinkle over bananas, then insert spiced bananas into the yonanas machine.

Strawberry Pineapple Sorbet
½ cup frozen strawberries
½ cup frozen pineapple

Insert alternating pieces of slightly thawed strawberries and slightly thawed pineapple pieces into the yonanas machine.

Blackberry Vanilla Bean
2 frozen overripe bananas
2 vanilla beans
¾ cup frozen blackberries
¼ cup of chopped pistachios

Split vanilla beans lengthwise and scrape out seeds. Spread the seeds over one of the bananas. Insert alternating pieces of banana and blackberries into the yonanas machine. Once complete, top with crushed pistachios.
