Before Davis came along, I really didn’t know what it meant to have a child with a food intolerance or really even a child who was sick. So, navigating this rocky road of food intolerance and possible allergy/asthma has been a hit or miss thing. Over the 6 years of his life we have narrowed down that any form of dairy causes a flare up of sorts. It seems the more fat the worse it is. So, for about 5 years, Davis has avoided dairy like the plague. He never has ice cream and never has had a desire for it.
Fast forward to last week when I told Davis that I was going to make him some ice cream that he COULD eat! I made sure to tell him with as much enthusiasm as I could muster up. At first he backed away and said, “Mom, I can’t have ice cream. It hurts my throat!” and that’s when I showed him the Yonanas machine and the bananas. I explained to him how we were going to make “ice cream” out of bananas. He said, “Nothing else?” and I reassured him and asked him to help.
So, here’s what you do.
- Peel your “cheetah spotted” bananas.
- Place in a freezer bag until frozen. This may take a few hours just to be safe.
- Remove from the freezer and let them sit out for about 7 minutes.
- Place into the Yonanas machine and have yourself banana flavored ice cream that is dairy free!
It really was that simple. Both of the boys devoured the Yonanas “ice cream” and wanted more. I have yet to try any of the other recipes or use this with other fruits. I do have some strawberries in the refrigerator that I think I’ll give this a shot on. It really is a great and fun way to have an afternoon snack that is healthy and dairy free! You can pick up the Elite Yonanas for $99 right now which is about a $30 savings!
