I have diverticulitis and am currently on a low residue diet. Instead of dairy milk, is rice or almond milk ok?

In brief: Yes

The low residue diet is utilized while you recover from an acute diverticulitis infection.
Rice of almond milk is low residue. Once recovered, one wants to consume a high fiber, high liquid diet.
