In brief: Juice definitely

Milk has fat and its lactose content has to bee broken down first before it can be utilized by your body.
During an acute hypoglycemic episode, you need fast and quick relief that can only be delivered by simple glucose such as simple juice or glucose tablets/hard candy.
