Cocoa Ice Dream
1/3 cup cool or cold filtered water
2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin or 3/4 teaspoon agar powder (not the flakes)
1/4 cup honey or agave nectar, add 1 to 3 teaspoons as needed
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pure stevia extract powder or 1/2 to 1 teaspoons clear stevia extract liquid
1/8 teaspoon finely ground, unrefined sea salt
3 1/2 cups (two 14-ounce cans) unsweetened, preservative-free coconut milk (not lite)

1 to 2 tablespoons coconut rum or light or dark rum, optional
Add 1/3 cup water to a small saucepan. Slowly sprinkle with gelatin or agar powder. Let stand for 2 to 5 minutes to soften. Warm over medium-low heat, without stirring, until gelatin or agar dissolves. Scrape the mixture into a blender, Vita-Mix, or food processor. Cover and process until smooth.
Add honey, stevia, and sea salt. Blend. Add coconut milk, cocoa powder, and vanilla. Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape the sides with a spatula. For a sweeter taste, add an additional 1/8 teaspoon stevia and/or 1 tablespoon honey. Blend, taste, and repeat if needed.
Pour into one or more wide-mouth jars. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours before churning.
