I'm thinking about switching from lactose free milk to almond milk since I found out that almond milk has fewer calories. Should I make the switch?

In brief: Drinkers preference

There is no problem switching to almond milk from lactose free as it is lactose free as well.
However almond milk contains less calcium and protein unless fortified with these substances so depends if you need these things. The almond milk has less calories if that is a concern. Hope this helps.
