Options.
Use any milk but add some fat to the dish if you use low-fat variety (dairy or plant), to maintain original recipe estimated fat content.
For richer taste and to maintain fat level, use some sort of dairy cream (half and half, sour cream, yogurt etc). But don't use too much heat if using yogurt or sour cream, or they may separate.

Oh, great! Perhaps some almond milk with a almond or cashew yogurt? Or a tahini tablespoon in addition to the almond milk!

Lovely!
Both sound good for taste.
The tahini option sounds better for fat balance in the whole dish.
