Failures in Hydration, Cream Edition

, I too am a grown-ass woman who fails at hydration. However, I do find that I am more willing to guzzle down creamy drinks, such as milk or hot chocolate. Are those enough to hydrate me, will I die from too much milk, and what other drinks will help fulfil both the cream craving and the hydration?

Other pertinent details:
1. I do like tea and coffee - too much coffee makes me jumpy, but I'm fine with any amount of tea. I think they also hit part of the same craving as milk and hot chocolate in that they're warm.
2. I'm lactose-intolerant, but can deal with lactose-free milk fine. I do like soy and almond milks but also would like to know if I would suffer from drinking too much of it.
3. I'm so-so with fruit juices and smoothies (I tend to prefer solid fruit/veg) though I do love melons a great deal. Hate berries and not fond of much stonefruit. Green smoothies make me feel woozy.
