11 Bite-Size Banana Recipes You Need To Try

Bananas are the perfect food to refuel with after a workout because they are high in electrolytes, most notably potassium and magnesium, and high in carbohydrates. The high magnesium and potassium content in bananas helps to prevent muscle cramps that can happen at night after strenuous workouts. This is because after an intense sweat session, your body will rid itself of electrolytes, and electrolytes are needed to keep your muscles relaxed.

In addition to being great as a post-workout snack, ripe bananas are also great for digestion and help to get things moving.
