This ice-cream is made from frozen bananas and mixed berries. Ladies and gentlemen, please meet my new toy, the Yonanas frozen fruit ice-cream maker.
I never meant to buy this device and it's all my auntie's fault. It was 4 or 5 years ago I think, when we went strolling into Cold Storage. A sales promoter was doing a demo on this Yonanas machine.

My auntie and I became very kaypoh (busybody) and approached the booth. The saleslady was more than happy to entertain these two potential victims. She let us try the frozen banana ice-cream.

Mmmm..!!! Nice! It tasted just like regular ice-cream and it was unbelievable that this was made from bananas. Then she let us try the frozen pineapple ice-cream. Also very good!
The saleslady told us that the promotion for the Yonanas machine was only for one day only and asked if we were interested to purchase one. I was hesitant. I know myself too well. I have many kitchen devices in my house which are sitting inside my cupboards, never to see daylight again.

My auntie was also considering the machine but she was smarter. "Buy lah, buy lah", she urged me. That's what my auntie likes to do. She encourages other people to spend but she keeps her money safely in her pocket.
In a moment of weakness, I bought the Yonanas machine. Then my auntie went on and on about how everyone will now get to eat frozen banana ice-cream when they visit my home. Yeah, right.
From the moment I brought the machine home until last weekend, it sat in my cupboard, frozen in time. I had no motivation whatsoever to haul it out from hibernation. None at all. In spite of having paid more than RM200 for this device. Cilaka!
Well, thanks to this month's Little Thumbs Up event, I finally froze some bananas and made this Banana Ice Cream. Actually, you don't need this device to make banana ice-cream. You can refer to Esther's post on how to do it in a blender. So, will I use the Yonanas machine again? Errr.....
