Coconut milk

I can't stand coconuts. Not at all. Can't stand the flavor, can't stand the smell, none of it. This makes me very sad, because I keep seeing all these delicious looking recipes that call for coconut milk, and I just know I'd end up throwing it away if I tried to make it. So tell me, am I justified in thinking I wouldn't like things that include coconut milk? Or does it not actually taste like coconut? And if my hopes are in vain, could I substitute cream (or something else) in these recipes and have a (obviously inferior) version that's more to my taste?
