Vegan Chocolate Pecan Ice Cream--Vita Mix Style

I am holding a sick baby, typing one-handed, so these posts will be short--and some of them, sweet. ;-)  I had a need for chocolate ice cream the other night and invented this.  It was amazingly creamy.  My husband approved, too.  You do need a high-powered blender for this, otherwise you'll have ice chunks.
chocolate pecan ice cream
1/4 c. boiling water
1/2 c. gf cocoa
1-14 oz. can coconut milk, full fat
1 tsp. gf vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 c. agave nectar
4 c. ice
1/2 c. pecans
  • in a freezer safe bowl, mix boiling water, cocoa, and vanilla--it won't be totally liquid
  • add coconut milk and agave and stir well
  • add xanthan gum; make sure it's mixed in well
  • freeze for an hour, stirring once or twice
  • add ice
  • pour into blender
  • mix on high, stirring with the blender's tamper
  • pour back into your bowl and add pecans
  • serve immediately; freeze leftovers
