In brief: Absolutely you can

In moderation of course and if on insulin, you must account for the grams of carbs when taking insulin.

In brief: Diabetic diet

While it's important to be aware of the amount of simple sugars you eat, the focus of your diet should be the quantity and quality of the foods you eat.
A normal fasting sugar for a diabetic should be under 120. After eating or postprandial blood sugars should not be over 200 after an hour.
