Switching from Lactose Free to Regular Milk

I used to be lactose intolerant, but I outgrew it years ago. Unfortunately, I developed a taste for lactose free milk and can't drink the regular stuff. Can you help me transition?

Back story: I was diagnosed at ~ 4 after having had pretty severe symptoms. I couldn't eat ice cream or cheese for most of my childhood, but things started getting better in adolescence and now I can eat ice cream and cheese and drink coffee / lattes with regular milk. I just can't stand the way it tastes plain.
I drink a lot of plain nonfat or 1% milk (as a beverage, and in cereal) and I would love to switch to regular milk because of the price difference. A half gallon of lactose-free costs $4.99-5.29 here in Alaska, while a gallon of regular is around $2.99.
Have you ever made this switch? What worked?
