Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
I love ice cream. I might even be addicted to it! Unfortunately, dairy is not my friend and is a forbidden food on the Whole30. I recently had the chance to review the brand new product – The Big Boss Swirlio. Swirlio takes your favorite frozen fruits and creates 100% guilt-free soft serve desserts in under a minute!
We found using our Swirlio to be a bit of a learning curve. After freezing your fruit, it is recommend you thaw the fruit for about 10 minutes before putting it in your machine. We found 10 minutes was not enough. If the fruit is too frozen, the machine will basically not do a thing.
The fruit does come out just like a frozen yogurt. It has a great consistency. If you are not a fan of bananas, you might find that many recipes aren’t for you since most use bananas for the consistency.
As the main dish washer in my home, I found the Swirlio to be very hard to clean. I had to scrub the main parts many times to ensure it was clean. If you have a scrubbing brush or bottle brush, you will want to use it to clean your machine. I did find that the parts felt very flimsy and I felt like they would not last long.
The machine is very quite and does not take up much room on your counter. It is pretty stylish in it’s design and 5 great colors – black, white, red, lime and purple. Each machine comes with a recipe book with 50 great recipes! Recipes include kid-friendly, alcoholic beverages, or even things like guacamole or bean dip!
The bottom line for the Swirlio is, although it made some tasty desserts, if you are in the market for a machine like this do some research. This is a brand new product and while it has great potential, I think a very improvements would make it fantastic.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
