I thought cream was carb-free - I was wrong!
Here are the carb counts of a cup (8 fluid ounces) of the following, according to the USDA database. Note: some milks are “protein-fortified”, and sometimes powdered milk is added for more “body” - this will alter the carb counts, so be sure to check the label. Also, “cream” varies depending upon the amount of butterfat and lactose.
