If you don't mind adding some honey, it will help the texture. It's an invert sugar so it lowers the freezing point -> easier to scoop + less crystallization. Alcohol has a similar effect. A tablespoon or so of vodka can help. You can... (more)

Light coconut milk is fat reduced. Check the label. It is not watered down. There should be no added carbs or sugars. However the ratio of fat to carbs will be altered.
