Couldn't you thicken the nectar and put it over ice cream?

its just a sweetener-- you can use it in place of sugar, honey or maple syrup

I have had success using agave in baked goods and sorbets or ice creams.

Agave nectar is about 40% sweeter than sugar.
The All about agave website has a good page explaining how to use Agave nectar in a recipe in place of some other sweetener.
The website 101 cookbooks has three good recipes; my favourite being the black bean brownies.

I've been using it as a replacement for sugar in almost everything. If the recipe calls for sugar, I cut the amount back by about 25% in general. It's worked very well in cakes, pies, sorbets, and ice creams, that I've used it in.

So much! I love agave! I use it in muffins, smoothies, to sweeten oatmeal, but I have found it is fabulous to use to sweeten carrots instead of honey. It is also good to use to sweeten tea instead of sugar.

Thanks so much to everyone! I'll check the websites recommended and try using it in recipes at 75% of the measurement of sugar.
