We drink Pacific brand nut beverages here - Almond Original for me, and Hazelnut for the kiddos. Rice milk is also a possibility if you are concerned about allergies (not that one can't be allergic to rice, but it is quite rare in our culture).
I had to go dairy free for a time with both kids while nursing, and switched to rice milk w/ds1. Once he was okay with me having dairy again, cow's milk just didn't taste right to me anymore, so I stopped drinking it. Ds2 is allergic to dairy, and he does fine on the hazelnut *milk* and good quality calcium supplements.
