No churn ice cream: too rich!! Any ideas about how to salvage it?

I made's Strawberry Crumble Ice Cream - strawberry cheesecake ice cream with a brown sugar crumble -- Very tasty but SO RICH that we really can't eat it. Next I tried Nigella Lawson's No Churn Coffee Ice Cream -- -- and found a similar result. The latter is better since it doesn't have the cream cheese adding to its richness, but still quite heavy. When I use my ice cream maker use sweetened condensed milk in the ice cream recipe, the ratio is 1:1:1 sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, milk (thanks, Ben and Jerry). I wonder if I can thaw the ice cream a bit and fold in milk. Anyone have experience with this - or another idea?

Mix the ice cream with low fat and/or low sugar foods to make a more palatable dish, like:
• smoothie or milk shake
• pudding. mix lots of fruit with slightly softened ice cream. Eat softened, or freeze again and eat semi hard
• cake. soften and use spread between cake layers, refreeze and slice when semi hard.
• ice cream sandwiches. Spread ice cream between cookies, freeze again.
And on another note, use in drinks - iced or Irish coffee (instead of whipped cream), or in cocktails that use cream and ice.
