As well as being a brilliant source of potassium, bananas are also packed full of fiber, vitamin B6 and a little vitamin C too. The reason for their high calorie content is because they have much less water content than other fruits. Bananas, paired with some nut butter, can work as an excellent pre or post workout snack and like all fruits high in sugar and carbs, should be consumed in moderation.

A rich source of: potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C.
