A friend of mine is on a diet, and is looking for ways to slim down but still keep all her favorite treats in place. I’ll have her at my house over the holiday weekend, so I needed to make sure she would be satisfied with her treat. I didn’t want her to feel left out while everyone else got to eat cake or cookies. I racked my brain for a while, thinking maybe I should make her cheesecake bites, or lowfat chocolate cake. Then after talking to her those ideas seemed to decadent for her weight loss plan. Luckily I had recently got a bag of ViSalus shake mix and a couple of new paleta molds. I thought what if I make a banana visalus mixture and freeze it into paletas then dip them at the tip in a chocolate? I knew that would make her happy since she loves banana and chocolate. I called her and told her all about the ViSalus product, how it is gluten- free, lactose – free, low fat, contains non-GMO soy protein, and low sodium. I then told her I made paletas out of them and they are DELICIOUS, she said she was so thankful cuz she has a hard time finding something great when everyone else is eating dessert.

Ingredients for Banana Paletas:


  1. In a blender add in bananas, almond milk, and Visalus Vi-Shape Nutritional Shake Mix. Blend on high till smooth.
  2. Pour mixture into paleta / popsicle molds, then insert sticks and freeze over night.
  3. Prepare a cookie sheet with piece of wax paper on it.
  4. Melt down dark chocolate chips, either in a double boiler or microwave.
  5. Remove paletas from the freezer, then unmold them.
  6. Dip the tip of the paleta in melted chocolate, then sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
  7. Place dipped paletas on the cookie sheet and place back in the freezer for one hour.
  8. Enjoy!
