No, skim milk isn't keto-friendly.
Skim milk has 12 grams of total carbs. About 12 grams is sugar and 0 grams is fiber. This results in a total of 12 grams of net carbs. This makes skim milk a really bad choice if you're following a keto diet.
Consider these keto-friendly options:
Almond milk is a keto-friendly alternative. It contains 1 gram of total carbohydrates, with about 1 gram coming from fiber and 0 grams from sugar. The net carbs totals to 0 grams, 11 grams lower than skim milk.
Heavy cream is a good keto-friendly alternative. It contains zero total carbs, and as a result also the amount of net carbs is zero, 11 grams less than skim milk.
