Healthy vegan ice cream

I gave this on a potluck last weekend and it was a HIT!! :P
1 liter full fat coconut milk
600 gr amazake (2 bags)
pinch of salt
2 1/2 tablespoon of arrowroot
2 tea spoons of agar powder (about 2 grams)
250 gr ripe banana
40 grams 100 % pure dark cacao powder (depends on your taste)
put all  in a blender, and then in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a simmer
over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and can coat
the back of a wooden spoon.
Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Cover and chill in an
hermetic box at least 3-4 hours, or up to 24 hours.
every two hours , get it our of the freezer and stir so the air can get in, do
this about 4 times ( so better start it on a  weekend in the morning :).
You can change the amount of amazake to make it sweeter , and add more cacao powder if you want it rather strong, but please do not change the amount of agar: not enough agar and you have an ice cube, too much agar and you have a kind of gelatine :P
