Get Your Chocolate Fix with this Diabetic-Friendly Shake
If you have diabetes, dessert can be one of the most challenging parts of a meal. This chocolate shake gets its rich creaminess—and high protein content—from an unexpected ingredient: Light, silken-style tofu. Be sure to use unsweetened cocoa powder, not pre-made hot chocolate mix, which is often laden with sugar.
