2 tbsp. low-fat natural yogurt
4 peeled, pitted, and sliced fresh peaches
In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, whip the cream until thick.
Fold in the custard, and then stir in the yogurt.
Pour mixture into a shallow, freezer-safe container.
Cover and freeze for about 1 hour, or until ice crystals begin to form around the edges.
Remove mixture from the freezer, and mash well.
Return mixture to the freezer, and allow to freeze for about 2 hours, or until mixture has a "mushy" texture.
Remove mixture from the freezer, and mash well again.
Puree the peaches in a food processor or a blender, until smooth.
Stir the peaches into the cream mixture and mix well with a spoon or whisk.
Freeze mixture for another 2 - 3 hours, or until firm.
If frozen for longer, transfer the ice cream to the refrigerator about 1 - 2 hours before serving, or leave ice cream at room temperature for about 30 minutes to 1 hours to allow ice cream to soften somewhat.
Serve homemade peach ice cream with fresh fruit or mint sprigs, if desired.
