"Lite" coconut milk

Esteemed 'hounds--I hope this is the proper board for posting this question. Recently, I've seen several references to "lite" coconut milk. My recollection from a Thai cooking class I once took is that "lite" coconut simply has more water in it.


1) Is this correct, that "lite" coconut milk is simply the presence of more water? If so, can you just turn regular coconut milk into "lite" milk by adding water?

2) Does coconut milk freeze well if you use just a little in your recipe and want to save the remainder?

Thank you,
