You can use a non-dairy creamer (silk is excellent) if it's not too much (e.g., a 1/4 cup), but if it's a lot I'd use coconut milk.

I think you can use any liquid substitute that you like from broth/stock to soy/almond milk. Not familiar with the recipe but you might also add some oil depending on liquid you choose to the liquid. Example: a teaspoon of EVOO to broth or nut oil to Almond milk.

Good cooking to ya!

if you are looking for a non dairy substitute, Silk soy milk is not pareve.
However i substitute for milk in almost every recipe with a non dairy soy milk. Just read the labels there are lots of them around. a vanilla soy milk might be a nice substitute in this recipe. i plan to make a similiar recipe, i think, with toasted pecans, and an oatmeal, streusely toping

Not sure what your recipe contains, but Lactaid milk, coconut milk or soy milk should work OK. Lactaid milk is pretty sweet, so if there is sugar in the recipe, you will probably want to reduce the amount of sugar. I personally don't like using almond milk because it tastes a little bitter. I've also used 1/2 OJ and 1/2 water, but again, it depends on the recipe and how it'll interact with the substitutions.
