Anytime you change the fat content of the dish you change its taste and sometimes texture, but yes it can be substituted, I have done so in the past. I have used whole milk instead of coconut milk, and even 2% in place of whole milk (trying to cut my cholesterol). It worked, but certainly changed the taste of the dish. I finally decided I was better off with smaller portions than cutting the fat.
Certainly give it a try and see how you like it. Keep some heavy cream around, that way when you are done if you decide it is not good, you can add small amounts of the heavy cream in and bring the fat content up without having to add a lot more liquid.
