Hey guys, for my Post workout shake I usually take in a banana with creatine and protein powder. However, in college it is difficult to keep fruits for extended periods of time. Is there a food which replicate banana's nutrition profile without going bad so easily. Thanks in advance.

Raisins seem to be the most efficient solution to my problems.

Not sure if this applies to your situation, but putting the bananas in the fridge helps them last a week or more. They may darken on the peel, but inside they are perfectly fine.

Freeze them. Sweet taters stay good for awhile and work good too.

Dried bananas?

They look horrible, but they actually taste really good.

That looks like a really practical and cheap solution.

Eat some banana chips while you sip your shake.

Other than that ground oats, perhaps.

Not the chips! Those are coated with sugar/hydrogenated oil. Most bulk food and natural food stores sell whole dried bananas.

I know as bananas ripen the starches turn into sugars. Perhaps that is why they taste so good.

I was trying to think of a polite way to say "wrinkly old phalic object" - that'll do.

this is not an answer, but has anyone tried chopping up a banana placing the peices on foil and putting them in the freezer, then eating as a cold treat.

Tastes amazing!

If you have a freezer at your place you could buy frozen fruit such as peaches, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and cherries. Frozen strawberries and blueberries can be found at most supermarkets. Berries are lower in sugar then most fruit and they also have high levels of fiber and antioxidants.
