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)

i use the trader joe's coconut milk for kefir. it works fine. i think it's just coconut and water. coconut extract is still coconut. the less ingredients, the better.

I find all of the refrigerated coconut milk will have preservatives and other stuff added. I go for the canned stuff, which usually shows up in the "ethnic" or "asian" sections of the grocery stores I shop at. You can also buy it online.

When I use canned coconut milk I basically just use the creamy part and toss the watery part because it's kind of disgusting/carby to me. Why is the water from fresh coconut or straight up coconut water you buy so much sweeter? Thanks!

You're not using thickeners like carrageenan. To get more out of your coconut, you can try using hot water and blending and straining the stuff as soon as it's lukewarm.
