“Bananas are rich in potassium, which is essential to help you replenish electrolytes and hydrate after a workout,” explains Lottie Bildirici, a New York City–based triathlete and recipe developer.

Feel free to swap in various herbs and toppings—Bildirici recommends fresh mint and cacao nibs for a grasshopper flavor profile—and use your favorite protein powder.
