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 at home and it has been a success!  

Visiting a froyo shop costs our family a fortune. 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 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. 

What is FroYo?

“Froyo” is a colloquial term for frozen yogurt, a popular frozen dessert made from yogurt and sometimes other dairy products.

It is often served in a manner similar to ice cream, with various toppings such as fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, or syrups.

Frozen yogurt gained popularity as a healthier alternative to ice cream due to its lower fat content and the presence of beneficial bacteria found in yogurt, which may aid in digestion.

It became particularly trendy in the late 90s and early 2000s as a popular dessert option in many frozen yogurt shops and cafes.

Setting Up a Home FroYo Bar

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 (see pic below).

The little circle and square bowls are very inexpensive. The bamboo tray was $15.88. 

In the little bowls we put our favorite toppings. 

I personally love chocolate frozen yogurt with Oreos and Reese’s cups with a little Reese’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 wouldn’t you agree?

Everyone loved it! We even served it at the Man Cave Pallet Bar!

There is something so thrilling for kids to scoop their own toppings into frozen yogurt.

  1. 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 🙂

  2. 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. 🙂

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. 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. 🙂

  6. Awww, sweet thing! I definitely hope she gets that dream, but it sounds like Momma’s taking good care of her in the meantime. 😉

  7. I bought the Cuisinart and have loved making yogurt this summer. Can’t wait for your recipes!
