WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD

I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected.

QUICK AND EASY RASPBERRY HOT CHOCOLATE

Make yourself a tasty cup of raspberry-flavored hot chocolate the quick and easy way.  I use water.  If you want yours rich and you don't have a serious diabetic problem, you could use milk instead.

2 pkts Spenda Raspberry-flavored Flavor Accents
1 pkt sugar-free hot chocolate mix
1 cup boiling water
1 tbsp sugar-free thawed whipped topping

Pour the hot chocolate mix into a mug and add the Splenda packets; stir to mix well.  Pour the boiling water into the mug and stir until dissolved.  Add the whipped topping and enjoy!

Yield: 1 cup cocoa
