    If you are hungry and needs energy, neither of the other two beats a banana.

    Agreed SG.

    My own favourite are apples though : I eat a minimum of three per day : I find them a great source of energy.

    Bananas are the best nutritionally, but a nice cold orange out of the fridge on a hot day feels so refreshing.

    My favorite is chilled mango.

    I agree - one medium banana, one navel orange (they're the best for this), 1/2c plain nonfat yogurt, 1/2c skim milk, and 6-8 ice cubes, Blenderize the daylights out of it and quaff it down- sheer heaven! If you want (not needed for recovery, but good for you), add a couple tablespoons of ground flaxseed- golden is best for this, as the brown has a stronger flavor.

    Both the banana and orange have potassium---good for keeping the muscle cramps away. The banana has an added bonus of a bit of protein, though not very much. (I understand protein shortly after exercise is good for muscle recovery?...)

    Considering, that to aid recovery after exercise you need ~1 to 1.5 grams of carbohydrate per kg of body mass, you're going to have to eat an awful lot of fruit (of whatever type) to meet those needs...

    None of these, I'd prefer a red grapefruit.

    Banana's good energy giver.But if you wanna recover from illnesses such as colds, go for fruits rich in vitamin C. Oranges would do it.

    you're getting into something very relevant and complex.

    However, -
    the good old mainstay I would recommend is dates (Deglet Noor, the most common) These will restore you to a perhaps unexpected level.
