If it is a hot summer day, just leave them out for five minutes before inserting them into the Yonanas chute.
You will mostly be combining frozen bananas and other fruits or chocolate or cookies to get a dessert with the texture of soft-serve ice cream or frozen yogurt. It is a silky smooth texture created by the integrated spinning blade that mashes and combines the ingredients. You can use strawberries, blackberries, mango or any frozen fruits of your choice.
It is easy to disassemble and clean as the blade, plunger and the chute are all dishwasher safe. The spatula set that you get with this unit is made up of two large green and two small red non-stick and heat-resistant silicone spatulas and a blue silicone brush. These BPA-free silicone spatulas have a robust steel core that ensures comfier hold. And they are odor and stain resistant and heat resistant up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
