Smile Fresh Milk Substitute!

I don't drink much milk and am Lactos anyway. But when I buy fresh milk of any kind, I have to throw it out more than not! Then when I need milk for a baking recipe, I don't have any!
I hear I could use Condensed or Evaportated canned milk, or Dry Powdered to substitute for fresh milk.
What can I use for baking bread?
What can I use for my cereal? (Remember I am lactos.)
And for other recipes that call for fresh milk?
Please, and thank you!

Have you tried Lactaid brand lactose free milk??

Almond milk has a longer shelf life and tastes good.
Just be yourself! Everyone else is taken.

I enjoy Almond Milk for my cereal but I've never cooked with it.

I buy boxed whole milk for cooking. It's as convenient as canned milk, as it needs no refrigeration until it's opened. It comes in those little boxes, like juice boxes for kids. You can often find it in the baby food section of the grocery. You can use canned milk for cooking, but it sure doesn't have the flavor of fresh milk.

I would go with the suggestions of Andy and 4meandthem, but for the record, when baking bread, powdered milk works just fine.
