Graham Cracker Ice Cream Sandwiches by Jessica Seinfeld

I figure I should post the Graham Cracker Ice Cream Sandwiches by Jessica Seinfeld from her cookbook Deceptively Delicious before the summer is over, so here is the recipe:

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 120 minutes
Makes 8 sandwiches

*2 cups lowfat plain yogurt
*1 cup sugar
*1 cup lowfat (1%) buttermilk
*2 tablespoons lemon juice
*Grated zest of 1 lemon
*16 lowfat graham crackers, broken in half (32 squares)
*Shredded coconut (optional)

1. In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, sugar, buttermilk, lemon juice, and lemon zest.  Transfer to a small bowl, cover, and freeze for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until the mixture starts to thicken.

2. To form the sandwiches, scoop out and then press about 1/4 cup of the semifrozen yogurt mixture between two graham cracker squares.  Wrap each in waxed paper and freeze 30 minutes, or until firm.

3. If using coconut, put some on a plate and dip all four edges of the sandwich to coat.

I have to be honest, I liked these, but didn't love them, but it's probably because I don't love lemon.  If you love lemon and like a healthy snack, this is an excellent, easy and quick way to make your own!  Let me know what you think of them, if you try them out!
