Helpful Tips

  • If the fruit has a pit, stem or large seeds, please remove prior to placing in the freezer. Remove the skin from pineapple, kiwi and other fruit with hard skin (all citrus fruit, mango, etc.).
  • For creamy, ice cream like texture, always use bananas. Omit the bananas and you will get more of a sorbet dessert.
  • As soon as you notice your bananas get brown spots, peel, pre-cut in several pieces and freeze in freezer-safe bags or containers. To ensure best taste, use frozen bananas within 2 days.
  • Mix all of the frozen fruit in a large mixing bowl prior to inserting into the chute.
  • Since there is no added sugar, you can indulge any time of day, guilt-free!
  • When adding liquids like chocolate syrup, wait a few seconds after the start. Stop before the machine stops, to make sure it works itself through the dessert.
  • If adding nuts to the dessert, make sure it is chopped or ground well.
  • You may pre-cut fruit prior to freezing. Separate into small batches and keep in the freezer for future use.
  • You can use the store bought frozen fruit.
  • If your fruit is too frozen, wait a few minutes for it to thaw out before placing into Swirlio.
  • Swirlio is not limiting you to only frozen desserts. You may use it to create dips, sauces and other delectable foods.
  • Dress up your frozen creation just like you would ice cream. Add sprinkles, chopped cookies or nuts (or both!), chocolate syrup, caramel.
The possibilities are endless!
  • Prefer serving the frozen dessert as scoops? Simply transfer your newly created dessert into the freezer safe container and place in the freezer for a couple of hours (or until it hardens). When ready, use ice cream scooper to serve.
  • Kids love popsicles! Just transfer into popsicle molds and place in the freezer until it hardens.
