Coconut flavor

I want to try to make low carb coconut flavored ice cream. Any ideas on how to best get that flavor in there?
I have unsweetened flakes, coconut oil, coconut milk, even a few whole coconuts. The flavor always seems fairly subdued.
Why sugar?

What about coconut extract? I think that would be strong.

I second the coconut extract. But what about coconut cream or full fat coconut milk. Is that what you have? The milk in the cans? I'd use that as my base.

I've used coconut extract to flavor a panna cotta for desert after an Indian meal. Just a half teaspoon was perfect for a dessert for 8 people.

Coconut extract or sugar free coconut DaVinci or Torani syrup.
