Dairy Free, Low Glycemic Index, Soft Serve Ice Cream (Agave Sweetened)

I have been experimenting with this recipe for a long time, and I think I have finally found the best version.  When I first started making this delicious ice cream, I used a can of coconut milk that had been refrigerated overnight.  However, we like it best when the can is room temperature.  It produces a better texture like a Wendy’s Frosty when the can is room temperature.  I also noticed that when I used a cold can of coconut milk the ice cream tended to have small hard clumps of coconut milk, which makes the ice cream unappetizing.  This version creates a soft serve texture that looks, feels and tastes very similar to a Wendy’s Frosty.  (Vanilla version pictured)

1 Can Coconut Milk (Organic and BPA free Can)
1/3 Cup Agave Nectar
2 Tbls Cacao Powder
1 Tbls Organic Pure Vanilla Extract

Mix all of the ingredients together in a glass bowl with a handheld blender until smooth and the cacao powder is thoroughly blended and clump-free.  Turn your on ice cream maker and pour in the mixture.  It will be ready in 20-30 minutes.

**For a vanilla version omit the cacao powder and use 3 Tbls Pure, Organic Vanilla Extract instead of 1 Tbls.
