Best Milk Alternative?

I'm trying to get myself off of milk, but I'm having a hard time finding an alternative that I like. So far I've tried: Rice Dream - Original Blue Diamond Almond Milk - Original Silk Organic Soy Milk - Unsweetened The thick consistency is part of my problem, but so is how sweet some of these products are, even though I'm buying the original, not Vanilla versions. I'd love to hear what other people are using and liking. Is there anything that is even remotely close to real milk? Thank you!

What About Goat's Milk?

My daughter is 8 months old. She now is breastfed and also eats babyfood and baby cereal, which I make with formula. Occasionally I give her a bottle if we're going out somewhere. When she was younger she was cow-milk-protein sensitive, but I've heard that Goat's milk protein is much closer to human milk protein. I know doctors don't recommend cow milk for infants younger than 1 year because their digestive systems can't quite handle the cow-milk proteins. So here's my question: Is there any reason not to give my daughter goat's milk...
