Yogurt is easier to digest than regular milk, so if you're lactose intolerant but you want some calcium and protein, give it a try! Also, if you like milk but hate the tummy aches (and hate soy milk), try lactose-free milk. It's sweeter, tastes similar. I actually like it better (and no tummy aches)
If you like milk, but have lactose intolerance, or just don't want the extra calories, Almond milk is a great way to go. I thought at first it might taste too much like almonds or too sweet, but it has much the same consistency as 2% milk, without the lactose and all the extra fat.
