When I use canned coconut milk I basically just use the creamy part and toss the watery part because it's kind of disgusting/carby to me. Why is the water from fresh coconut or straight up coconut water you buy so much sweeter? Thanks!

Because it's water... Coconut water is an actual juice drained from a young coconut. The coconut milk you get in a can is strained/ground up coconut meat with plain old tap water added to it. The cream on top is more of the meat extract and that water on the bottom is water, not coconut water.
