No, 2% milk isn't really keto-friendly.
2% milk has 11 grams of total carbs, with approximately 12 grams coming from sugar and 0 grams from fiber. The net carbs totals up to 11 grams. This makes 2% milk a poor choice if you're following a keto diet
Consider these keto-friendly options:
Almond milk is a keto option. It has 1 gram of total carbohydrates, with about 1 gram coming from fiber and 0 grams coming from sugar. This results in almond milk having 0 grams of net carbs, 11 grams fewer than 2% milk.
Heavy cream is a keto option. It has zero total carbs, and thus also zero net carbs, 11 grams fewer than 2% milk.
