At that point, I may use a reduced fat milk - maybe even skim - to balance out the consistency. There is a such thing as too much fat in ice cream, and I like to hit around that 15% mark plus egg yolks.
    I agree. A lot of people go a little overboard on consuming straight cream or coconut milk, and although I've done it a few times, I've found that I'm unable to drink more than a half cup before feeling too gross haha.

    Although if you make it so creamy, you limit the amount of ice cream you eat too

    I make Primal "ice cream" by just blending coconut cream with frozen berries and vanilla extract, sometimes adding a bit of raw honey to cut back on the tartness of the berries. I also add some potato vodka to it so it doesn't turn into a rock when it's in the freezer.

    I also found this recipe that is somewhat similar, but makes vanilla "ice cream".
