This viral product can transform any fruit into a creamy sorbet, and the texture will put your current blender to shame.

On the latest episode of Take My Money, PureWow creator Pascal reviewed the trending Yonanas Soft-Serve Dessert Maker, which creates vegan, dairy-free sorbets using frozen fruit. The question is: Is it worth $50?

In the episode (see above), Pascal explained how the Yonanas Soft-Serve Dessert Maker works. “Now this makes ice cream with just fruits,” she said. “Now I don’t know about you, but I love desserts—every day, every moment of the day—so the fact that this was making it with no ice, no dairy, nothing except for fruits, you know I had to put this to the test.”

Pascal tried three different recipes, and each one turned out delicious. (One was peanut butter/banana, the second was mixed berry/acai and the last was a boozy pineapple/strawberry sorbet.) She even compared the results with that of a blender, which didn’t step up to the plate.

The Yonanas Soft-Serve Dessert Maker can be purchased on the brand’s official website, or at other retailers like Home Depot, Amazon and Williams Sonoma. The machine comes in five different colors, including Silver, Mint, Coral, Red and White.
