Low Calorie Swap - Who'da Thunk?

I just tried using frozen yellow summer squash in place of frozen bananas in my Yonanas Frozen Dessert Maker. The young squash added bulk and soft-serve ice cream texture and is pretty much flavour-neutral. I added frozen pineapple and strawberries to make a big delicious bowl of *yum!* with fewer than 80 calories. Very satisfying on a hot summer day.

Anybody have a fave Yonanas combo to share?

    @MsCzar - sorry, nothing to share - but what a great idea for using yellow squash! I could see how the soft consistency would totally work in a frozen-type dessert.

    I don't have one of those, but it sounds interesting! I do have a ninja smoothie maker, but I prefer slushes. My favorite is cherry limeade. Frozen cherries, sprite, lime juice, ice, and a squirt of stevia liquid. I have thought about freezing a slush in a container to see if it makes kind of a sorbet.
