Regular cow's milk gives me mucous problems too, so I've used Rice milk and Almond milk. I liked the rice one, but it's very high in calories compared to the almond so I switched. I use Blue Diamond Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk at 40 cal per 8 oz. It works fine in my gluten free pancakes and I use it for breakfast cereal. That's pretty well it unless I'm making some random 'gravy'/sauce in which case I usually go out & buy plain almond milk so there isn't a hint of vanilla. I've never used it as a drink (well, just a couple of times in the past 4 years) but then again I rarely drink anything but water and the very occasional tomato juice (and of course wine, lol), herbal & green tea & black coffee (in the AM). I don't like the soy milks as they are too cloyingly thick to me - I always drank skim when I had cow's milk because I didn't like the mouthfeel of thicker fattier ones. It's pretty easy to find non-GMO/organic soy milks though so I wouldn't worry too much if that is your issue with them.
