First came the OG Keurig. Then came the SodaStream and the (somewhat controversial) Juicero. Next there was the bone broth option for your pod appliance, followed by buzzy cannabis K-cups. Now, there’s Wim, the latest machine to make single-serving goodies from the comfort of your countertop. But this time, you won’t be whipping up coffee or superfood-packed juices—The Wim is all about satisfying that frozen yogurt life.

You can use any kind of milk you’d like—from coconut or almond milk to old-fashioned cow’s milk—and can choose from a handful of vegan flavors.

Let’s be real here: Even if you’re the DIY goddess of ginger shots or bubble masks, the thought of making your own ice cream can seem downright daunting. (Anyone having flashbacks to a childhood spent trying to channel your inner rocket scientist and navigate how much rock salt to put in that ice cream-making barrel?) So the one-button Wim wants to make it super easy to get a sweet treat at home, Bloomberg reports. You add your flavor pod to the machine, then a dash of your milk of choice, press the button, and 10 minutes later, you have fro-yo.

But is it healthy—or at least “Halo Top healthy?” The Wim currently has 9 flavors in its rotation, including brownie batter, banana bread, cinnamon toast, passionfruit, and strawberry. It retails at $299—and the Wim-Bowls (the K-cup-type part of the contraption) will run you anywhere from $2–$3.80, depending on how many you buy. Each one produces a 4–4.5-oz. serving, which comes with around 150 calories and up to 19 grams of sugar (some natural, some added). You can use any kind of milk you’d like—from coconut or almond milk to old-fashioned cow’s milk—and can choose from a handful of vegan flavors in Wim’s mix.

And now you have to wonder: Could DIY cannabis coffee ice cream be next?

If you’d rather take date night out of the house, head to one of the best healthy restaurants in New York City, or try this new plant-based soft serve.
