Brain Freeze

READY IN: 6hrs 10mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

From Pampered Chef's Kids in the Kitchen cookbook. Simple, only 2 ingredients, but you need an ice shaver. Better for you than ice cream. Cook time includes freezing time. Update: I tried this myself with frozen O.J. and reducing it to 1/4 C with 1 C yogurt. I left it in the freezer overnight and it froze fine.

Hi, I tagged this for newest tag because I love finding recipes to use my pampered chef ice shaver. I scaled down the recipe to just one tub. When I threw this together, I worried, because it didn't freeze as solid as I thought it should. When I unmolded it from the tub, it was already starting to defrost... I do not know if it needed more yogurt, or if I did something wrong. It ended up being a big, soupy mess. I will try it again soon with more yogurt. Sorry!
