Healthy Ice Cream?!

I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about a machine that can turn fruit into soft serve in seconds, called Yonanas.  Every time I see an article or hear anything about it, my ears immediately perk up because I am an ice cream fanatic.  I’m sure that I am not the only one who has, at a weak point, polished off a Ben & Jerry’s pint (LOVE ‘Late Night Snack’) in one sitting, so I think that you can agree that this machine could be a saviour to many of us.

According to the product description, all you have to do is put some frozen fruit like bananas, berries, mango, or cantaloupe, into the chute of the (slightly phallic?) machine, and it transforms the fruit into a creamy soft serve ice cream without all of the extra sugar and calories.  Okay, if you want to add a little extra flavor, it’s safe to use chocolate in the machine, too.

Has anyone tried Yonanas yet?  I’m curious to know whether this investment is a God-send or just a quick fad.  Perhaps you can convince me one way or another with your opinions.
