Frozen yogurt, more affectionately known as froyo, has taken the sweet market by storm popping up in every city lately. We got our first froyo bar about two years ago and now we have three in my little city. Visiting a froyo shop costs our family close to $20. That can get pricey when you love it as much as we do. Last year for my birthday I got a Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt Maker (<â€”Amazon affiliate link) and have been making frozen yogurt at home ever since. It is so simple to make and is a fun way to spruce up dessert when guests come over.
I was recently contacted by Better Homes & Gardens to try their new porcelain white dishes from Wal-Mart. I adore white dishes and use them solely in my home. So I picked up a few from their collection that I will be showing you today to set up my froyo bar.
The little circle and square bowls are $1.98. The bamboo tray was $15.88. In the little bowls we put our favorite toppings. I personally love chocolate frozen yogurt with Oreos and Reeseâ€™s cups with a little Reeseâ€™s Peanut Butter Topping drizzled on it. Yum-O!
The waffle bowls and the mini cones are on the rectangle dishes. And I put the frozen yogurt into the porcelain footed serving bowl for $5.88.
Who said you had to use the gravy boats for gravy? How about some peanut butter and chocolate topping. Much better wouldnâ€™t you agree?
Everyone loved it! There is something so thrilling for kids to scoop their own toppings into frozen yogurt.
I will be sharing my favorite frozen yogurt recipes on the blog soon. Meanwhile, here is the entire Better Homes & Gardens porcelain collection available at your local Wal-Mart.

Love the little bowls! You are a lucky duck getting to try out some cute new stuff. We have a Cuisinart Ice Cream/Frozen yogurt maker also. I have never even made the frozen yogurt! We use the maker quite regularly (in combination with the Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream book when we started). The easiest and most often made are oreo, cookie dough, raspberry, strawberry, and vanilla. We got hooked on this as our oldest has nut allergies and we can’t eat out at ice cream shops. Last summer she had a swim party with pizza and sundaes after. We set out all the toppings and the girls went crazy!!! It is alot of fun to do the “bar” and just make the ice cream at home 🙂
This is one of my go-to blogs when I have free time/the kids let me rest for 10 minutes! – so I nominated your blog for a Very Inspiring Blogger award (here: http://paintingsunny.com/2013/06/24/very-inspiring-blogger-award-nominations-my-first-time-nominating-peeps/) XOXO, Dani @ Painting Sunny
I have looked all over for a good peanut butter topping recipe. Did you make your own, or use store-bought? Someday I will find it! By the way, your photos are lovely. 🙂
Oh yeah! 😉
I hadn’t thought of the usefulness of an ice cream and yogurt maker for those with allergies. A person’s got to have ice cream! 😉 The frozen yogurt is delish. You’ll definitely want to check out my favorite recipes that are coming soon!
Awww, thanks so much, Dani! That is such an honor, and I am flattered that you thought of me!
OHHH! You know I’ll be checking back 🙂 I really do need to try something lighter. I do find with the rich ice cream we eat alot less per serving (than the kind I would buy at the grocers years ago) but I am sure the whipping cream, milk, and sugar still pack a punch calorie wise for a small serving! And yes, can you imagine trips to MI (Kiliwins for ice cream) and one of your kids can’t have any 🙁 My dream is to be able to walk in there one day with her and she can get anything (her levels are getting lower every few years and MAY one day be “negative”) her heart desires! When we get home from MI I go crazy and make her decadent sundaes for a week!
Love reading your posts Beckie! I too have the Cuisinart due to nut allergies but have gotten out of the habit of using it. I’m looking forward to trying your froyo recipes when you post them. 🙂
Awww, sweet thing! I definitely hope she gets that dream, but it sounds like Momma’s taking good care of her in the meantime. 😉
Can’t wait to share them and see what you think! Thanks so much for reading and commenting, Nancy. 🙂
Yummm, my only worry is if I got a frozen yogurt maker, I’d get really fat! Lol.
Giggle! It can be a bit dangerous…
I used the Reese’s store-bought. It is so good, have you tried it?
I bought the Cuisinart and have loved making yogurt this summer. Can’t wait for your recipes!
