The flavor is like a Creamsicle®. The texture is creamier than sherbet, richer than frozen yogurt, yet lighter than an ice cream. Not quite sure what to call it, but it's delish!

I used "Orange Crush" water enhancer (I couldn't find Kool-Aid) and the flavor was great! Tasted just like Orange Crush! Overall the ice cream had a bit of a grainy texture but it was good:-) Read More

I made this again recently and loved it! As the submitter of this recipe I would like to note that I have also used Greek vanilla yogurt and regular unstrained vanilla yogurt too just reducing the amount to 1 cup. I don't usually have actual half-n-half and sub 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1/2 cup 2% milk instead. So when it's hot outside just keep a can of sweetened condensed milk in the fridge then everything is cold enough to whip this up on a whim and it's great as soft-serve even before ripening in the freezer. I have not tried "sugar free" drink mix I would expect that has an artificial sweetener? I have tried a few other (unsweetened) Kool-Aid flavors black cherry is good lemon is very tart and we also liked strawberry but orange is the best!:) Read More

Made it as instructed. Not much whey separated from the yogurt but it still turned out amazing. Just like orange dreamsicle push-up pops from childhood. Read More
