Swirlio Frozen Fruit Dessert Maker

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Life of a Southern Mom recently had the opportunity to review an new product called Swirlio Frozen Fruit Dessert Maker. The boys all love fruits and yogurts so I knew I could not go wrong with the Big Boss Swirlio. There is no need for me to keep buying fresh fruits and different kinds of yogurts from the store when I can make them right here in my own kitchen. 

About the company:

The Big Boss Swirlio makes fruits into a soft serve frozen dessert in seconds. Just peel, cut and freeze the fruits, insert them into the chute and you will have a delicious and healthy dessert. No metal blades and it is not loud at all. Plus, by using fresh fruits its gluten free and super easy clean up. You can add your favorite ingredients to create a yummy dessert the entire family will love. Swirlio is not limited to just creating desserts but also dips, sauces, and many other foods. The recipe creations are endless.  


Inside my package included the Swirlio Frozen Fruit Maker, Quick Start Guide, User Manual and over 50 Healthy Recipe booklet. The first time I had fresh yogurt was when my parents were in town and they took me to the YoYo Yogurt store. I loved the way it was made with fresh fruits without all the extra ingredients and it tasted incredible. I have been wanting to take the boys but we just haven’t found the time, but now that I have the Swirlio Frozen Fruit Maker I know we can enjoy right here at home.  I took apart my Swirlio unit, washed and put the pieces back together, which I must say took no time. This is dish washer safe which is a plus for me. I wanted to start with some easy recipes so that I could get a feel of the unit and how it worked. I chopped up three bananas that had started spotting and a package of fresh strawberries. They suggest that you just slice your bananas, freeze and use within 2 days. As for the strawberries I washed them, cut the stems off and froze whole in a ziploc bag. I let them freeze over night so that I could use them for to make snacks for the boys when they returned home from school the next day. Per the instructions I took the frozen fruit out of the freezer to thaw for about 10-15 minutes before using. I do recommend cutting the strawberries in half, because of the different sizing some may not fit down in the chute. I asked the boys which one each of them wanted. Ty wanted Banana and Eli wanted just Strawberry. Andrew being the picky eater wasn’t up for trying it just yet. I added a few bananas to start off with since I was new at the machine and didn’t know how many I needed to put it. I took the Pusher and pushed the bananas down so that they eased down the chute to the grinder. We were all standing there waiting, but nothing. So I added a few more bananas, pushed them into the chute and out came Banana Yogurt. I repeated the steps with the strawberries and couldn’t believe how easy this really was. I have a few ideas for the next time we want a yummy dessert. I will be posting more pictures of my new creations soon.

    I think you need to look up what yoghurt is. What you got by pushing frozen bananas through a blender is banana slushy, not “banana yoghurt”. Frozen Yoghurt is not another name for ice cream.

    Your “customer reviews” all sound terribly fake. The made up names are ridiculous… Here’s a couple examples: “Lialou”, “Sandy VanHoey”. Funny how they all “love it” and hit the same talking points. Yeah, no bias here. This product is better than air in my lungs! I’ll take 10 of them!
    Try harder next time and you might fool more people, just not the intelligent ones.

    I bought this item from the Good Morning America (GMA) special on TV but didn’t receive a manual. I contacted the Big Boss Swirlio company but was informed that since I didn’t get it from them that I would have to get it from GMA. I have emailed GMA but have not received a reply. Do you know of where I can obtain a manual for the Swirlio? Thanks.

      I haven’t tried that. I know that you have to use frozen fruit for it to be able to go through the grinder. So I am not sure about the liquid but its worth a try. Maybe I could play around with it and see if the boys would like if it worked.

    I have never heard of this machine before but I sure will check it out cause I would love to have one. It’s amazing!!!! It would be awesome because I eat clean. Summer is coming and it get so HOT down south in New Orleans, we live on ice cream and snow balls. Oh I have to have one!

  5. Jan Lee says

    Wow,,, I want this lol Doesn’t look too expensive on Amazon, will wait for a sale maybe or an Amazon Gift card! I love sorbets and yogurts and gelatos, frozen yogurt, fruit ices, etc etc lol I wonder if you can use soda pop as a flavoring or if it would mess up the final product? Thanks for the review :)

  6. Rebecca Wilson says

    This sounds fantastic. I love sorbets which this basically is without the extra sugars added though, yum. So healthy, my body may not know what to do with it lol.

  7. gianna borden says

  8. Natalie Brown says

    Hi! I’ve seen this on TV & wondered if how it would work out. It looks delicious! Thank-you for the honest review!

  9. Linda Madden says

    Well, that looks yummy. And so much more healthier than the frozen popsicles at the grocery store.

  10. rebeka deleon says

    I would love to get one of these for a great alternative to ice cream. my kid’s are always wanting sweets so this would be a better way to do it!

      My middle son loves ice cream. He could eat it everyday if I let him. Thankfully we have the Swirlio now and I have been putting it to good use.

  11. Sally says

    Wow this sounds really easy to use and healthy too! I like the simple easy to use design and that it is dishwasher safe!! Thanks!!

  12. Teri Melton says

    Thank you for this review. I have been looking for something to satisfy my husband’s constant craving for ice cream. This might be just the thing.

  13. Jess O says

    Oh wow, this looks awesome! What a great way to make your own soft serve and keep from ingesting tons of additives and preservatives. My little sister is gluten intolerant, so this would be great for making snacks for her, too.
