So it’s the school holidays - kids are spending more time at home, the consumption of food is going through the roof and it’s not always easy to keep an eye on what is being crammed into their little angelic faces. In the UAE where rising levels of obesity and diabetes (did you know we are the world’s second largest nation to be facing the type 2 diabetes pandemic)? it’s time, now more than ever, to take control of our bad eating habits and those of our children to ensure longevity and health for generations to come.
Don’t get us wrong, no one is saying that naughty foods aren’t okay in moderation, but a new healthy desserts maker, called Yonanas, just made it super easy to avoid a trip to your local ice cream haunt and cut your calories at the same time! What’s more, those suffering intolerences to gluten or lactose can indulge too, and it’s ready in under half a minute!
How does it work?
You need not look further than your fruit bowl for your healthy dessert fix. Created by Dole, the Yonanas maker uses a special technology to create a dairy-free alternative to ice cream using frozen fruit, which is fed through a juicer-like machine to create a bowlful of indulgence from as little as 100 calories per serving.
If you think it sounds too good to be true, a demo at Gourmet HQ today even proved our cynicism wrong and with a range of recipes that include tiramisu, mixed berry pie, bonbons, tropical sorbets and an assortment of soft serve ice cream substitutes, this is a must-buy for your kitchen!
