More from Mimi Kirk: As you might guess from the name of this drink, it's great for a pre- or post-workout boost. "Bananas are a good option as they contain high levels of potassium and antioxidants, which help the body convert glucose to glycogen for long-term energy," says Kirk. "Almond milk is a nutrient dense high energy food, which contains protein and may help maintain healthy blood sugar levels."
