A few years ago, some brands tried to make ice cream “healthier” by amping up the protein, lowering fat content or using artificial sweeteners. However, to be honest, these “healthy ice creams” don’t often taste great.

Instead, if you’re looking to make your favorite dessert more nutritious without sacrificing flavor, the Yonanas Deluxe Frozen Dessert Maker creates all-natural soft serve using only frozen fruit.

To use the machine, place your bowl below the maker and add frozen fruit to its chute. Press down with the plunger (it doesn’t take a lot of strength or effort), and that’s it. Your soft serve will come out into the bowl, ready to eat.

Keep in mind, the Yonanas Frozen Dessert Maker doesn’t make real ice cream per se, as it doesn’t use any cream at all. But that means it makes a vegan-friendly, one hundred percent fruit frozen dessert. Think of it as like a thicker, spoonable smoothie.

The Yonanas Deluxe Frozen Dessert Maker went viral on TikTok over the last few months of 2020. One post by @rachel_meaders used the machine to make strawberry banana soft serve, gaining a cool 2.8 million likes.

The machine became so popular, it earned the top spot as Amazon’s best-selling ice cream machine — and quickly sold out. But now, it’s finally back in stock.

Over 4,000 Amazon reviewers give the machine 5 out of 5 stars.

One enthusiastic customer who called it “legendary” wrote in their review: “It is a true marvel of science, magically producing perfect frozen yogurt from fruit. It blew my mind how similar it is to real ice cream. If you had placed a bowl in front of me, I dare say I would not recognize its true composition of pure fruit.”

“This deserves 50 stars! Oh my gosh, why did it take me so long to find this amazing gadget? Ice cream lovers, fruit lovers, sorbet lovers — THIS IS THE BEST INVENTION! So easy, quick, delicious and magical,” wrote another.

If you want to experience the “magic,” get the Yonanas Deluxe Frozen Dessert Maker before it sells out again. Seriously, just imagine yourself eating sweet, fruity soft serve. And hey, if anything else, you can use it to make a bomb video for TikTok.
