I decided to go here to try a froyo during a hot day in Honolulu. It's not really a frozen yogurt, it's frozen banana ice cream. Be prepared for a very sweet/rich taste while eating this product. It's definitely delicious, but I felt like I...More

I like how Banan offers options other than the typical acai bowls found on O'ahu. Their featured ingredient is bananas. I ordered the Chunkadelic, which features the banana flavored banan with chunks of dark chocolate, coconut, honey, macadamia nut honey butter, and granola. The combination...More

Do note that this is not your typical froyo / ice cream, as it is made of bananas. Had the Acai, with mac nut honey butter and strawberries. Healthier and not overly sweet, and the serving was huge - extremely full from it and took...More

I go to Banan twice a week. It's a great treat without too much guilt. The banana flavori s made from frozen fruit with nothing else added. Be sure to sign up for their rewards,

I was walking back from to Waikiki from Diamond Head and had worked up some hunger after the hike. My husband is lactose intolerant so I rarely get the opportunity to have ice cream. Then we see Banan! This stuff is better than ice cream!...More

Delicious, guilt free, healthy, cooling treats abound. I think my vegan, health conscious daughter, myself, hubby and other Aussie friends became addicted to this place. We must have had everything on the menu by the end of our holiday, actually we were really sad to...More

Description
Banan is a food truck built by four childhood friends who grew up on Oahu. After graduating from separate universities across the states in spring of 2014, they decided to put their heads together to pursue an entrepreneurial endeavor that would push the world in a mindful and playful direction. Turning locally grown bananas into a dairy-free soft serve became their vessel to do so!

We offer four flavors at our truck: Banana, Acai, Greens (ginger, mint, spirulina), and our fourth is always a changing seasonal flavor

Our soft-serve is dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and all that healthy stuff!

Farm-to-Table and Table-to-Farm:
Hawaii imports around 90-percent of our food to feed locals and visiting tourists. Here at Banan, we strive to flip that number and source as many locally grown ingredients as possible! We also give all of our nutrient rich food waste to pig farms, food farms, and local gardeners to be used as pig feed or compost.
