Milk alternatives for coffee and cooking

I originally posted this in the wrong board, please disregard the duplicate post.

I am lactose intolerant. I've tried Lactaid pills, which made me violently ill instead of helping (they have unlisted side effects), Lactaid milk which smells like baby formula and has a less than desired taste, soy milk which I don't like, rice milk which is weird tasting to me, and almond milk which is too sweet. Lately, I've just resolved to drinking milk despite the stomach cramps. What are some other milk alternatives I can try? I've been thinking of trying coconut milk.

I need something that will froth in my espresso maker, and possibly could be used in cooking not only desserts but meals too. Say I want macaroni and cheese one night without real milk- what would I use? Only certain cheeses upset my stomach, and I can eat yogurt with no ill effects. Thank you!
