help me make lactose free ice cream - heavy cream substitute?

My husband is lactose-intolerant, and while he feels better since discovering this, misses his most-favorite desserts - ice cream. We've tried literally almost every kind of lactose free ice cream on the market and they just don't have the flavor range he's used to! (I know, if that was only our biggest problem...) His particular favorite is mint chocolate chip.

Anyway, I want to make lactose free (or close to it) ice cream at home. I know you can get Lactaid milk, but what about heavy cream? Is there some kind of substitute for that?

Any other tips from those who've been there before?
