Dairy Free Cherry Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

We've gottten quite a few cherries the past 2 weeks in our bountiful basket. I've enjoyed eating them straight up and in smoothies, and such...but this is by far my favorite way to enjoy cherries...cherry chocolate chunk ice cream.  Back in my dairy filled days one of my favorite ice creams was Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia.  This is my take on that ice cream. And I enjoyed mine with a fantastic Goldbaum's gluten-free sugar cone.

Dairy Free Cherry Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream
1 can coconut milk (full fat)
3/4 cup non-dairy milk (So Delicious coconut milk)
1 1/4 cup pureed fresh cherries
1/4 agave syrup
2/3 cup halved fresh cherries
4 oz dark chocolate, chopped into chunks (check to make sure it's dairy-free)

Whisk together the milks, cherry puree and agave (or if you're lazy like me, stick it in a blender and give it a whirl to combine).  Add the milk mixture into an ice cream machine and follow the manufacturers instructions for freezing.  The last 5 minutes add in the cherry halves and the chocolate chunks. Place in a quart sized container and freeze until you're ready to eat it.
