I was searching for a diabetic alternative to a chocolate milkshake for my residents and came across something yummy . . . the Chocolate-Banana Sipper! I haven't tried it out on my family yet, but it was so good I couldn't wait to share it with you.
2 cups fat-free milk
1 banana, sliced and frozen (I had them in freezer for about 30 minutes)
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Cover and blend until smooth and frothy. Makes 4 (8-ounce) servings.

CONFESSION: My first batch was very good, but my second batch received better reviews. The secret? I added one scoop of sugar-free vanilla ice cream.
As I continue my search for healthy recipes that my family will actually eat, I've had great luck at www.diabeticlivingonline.com. Enjoy!
