Fine: Soy or almond milk are both usually lactose free. Lactaid or similar cow milk products are produced with the missing enzyme in the milk, so lactose sensitive people can use them without problems.

Mgt: I agree, but also please check the caloric content and sources of calcium/vitamin D on the labels since brands may vary. I would suggest using soy or lactaid, many almond milk brands contain mostly water.
