Hey there, I'm reaching veteran status with this allergy business. My DD has 46+ "positive" food allergies and has recently been diagnosed with Job's Syndrome (so she really may not be truly allergic to all of those!). When we were trying alternatives to milk, our favourite was Oat Milk. Even my husband and I would drink it! Rice milk was no good for her, soy was very bad and eventually we found out oats were not good either, but it was the best tasting out of the alternatives! If you aren't allergic to nuts, they also make almond and hazelnut milk. Some might suggest goats milk and between the statistics (something like 80% or so of milk allergic could also be goat milk intolerant) and the taste, it's a tossup.
So my big input is Oat Milk! I forget the brand, but I found it in the natural section of the grocery store. They have it at Whole Foods if you live near one. I cooked and baked with it almost just like cowsmilk. The milk is usually for hydration anyhow; you can easily use water in a recipe, though it may not taste as "full", but with the oat milk there was little difference. You can also make bread in a machine and just leave out the milk powder alltogether, not much of a difference in my opinion.
