My GF is a vegetarian so I have tried a couple things in taking one for the team and found that I like almond milk better than soy. Soy taints the flavor of the coffee too much and the vanilla soy is too stronge for me on the vanilla.

I prefer coconut milk and almond milk. Here is some info concerning the benefits of coffee with coconut milk. It seems to be more watery than real milk, but I don't do dairy and to me coconut milk is the best alternatives to cows milk.

You can buy now lactose-free cow’s milk. It is the milk companies treating these milks with lactase so that sugar is completely broken down. If you want to avoid also dairy products, use a substitute such as almond, hemp, multigrain, and rice.
It’s really a blessing in disguise that you have found coffee due to your gluten intolerance. Coffee might be beneficial to your health problems.
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine. www.coffeeloversmag.com/theMagazine

I switched to lactose-free milk at home due to lactose intolerance (it's not so bad that I have to avoid it completely, but drinking regular milk all the time at home is a problem). The flavour isn't that different, but it tastes a little sweeter (I'm guessing this is due to the glucose present as a result of the lactose being broken down). I find it a little easier to steam as well, probably for the same reason.
