Choose low-fat 1 percent or skim milk, and make sure that you count it in your meal plan, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). One cup of skim milk provides about 12 grams of carbs, 80 calories, calcium, and vitamin D. If you are lactose intolerant or don’t like milk, you can try fortified soy milk, rice milk, or almond milk instead.
