    I would die if I drank milk. My lactose tolerance has been shot the older I get. It sucks! 🙁 I love ice-cream, but if the ice-cream is made from ice-milk, I cannot touch it.

    We don’t buy milk. I eat my cereal dry and my husband puts half & half in his coffee and I put it in my tea.

    I like to get light Soy vanilla flavor. I’m lactose intolerant.

    I drink Lactosse free milk. It wasn’t an option so I hit other. It’s regular milk without an enzyme from my understanding. We get skim or 1%. 🙂

    2%. Skim tastes like milk-flavored water and whole makes me gag.

    @Skittles131:  I mash bananas and freeze them. 🙂 Add some nutella or peanut butter. Just as good!

    I don’t understand what any of the options actually are, apart from skimmed and soy… but I drink semi-skimmed.

    @Lepidoptera:  It has extra enzyme (or bacteria the produce the enzyme) that converts the lactose sugar into other sugars.

    I buy various milk substitutes.  Whatever is fortified, on sale, and usually one that isn’t super high in sugar although I occassionally indulge, and that isn’t soy milk.  For some reason soy milk upsets my GI tract too, other other forms of soy seem to be ok.

    DH drinks 1%.

    @Rachel631:  I think that 1% and 2% are like you semi-skimmed, their fat content is between whole and skim milk.

    We don’t drink or use a lot of milk, and FI is a little lactose intolerant, so we get almond milk, which also lasts longer. We like Almond Breeze Vanilla 🙂
