How Long Does It Take to Digest a Banana?

Everyone digests bananas slightly differently, though on average it takes two to three hours to digest completely. The high fiber content in bananas makes them ideal as a fruit that is easy to digest and eat during any time of the day.

Bananas are easy on the stomach and make a great breakfast, snack or even dessert. For people looking for a good pre-workout snack, eating a banana about 30 to 60 minutes before a light workout is a good start. While it is not completely digested by this point, it is still suitable for lighter workouts along with a tall glass of water. Bananas are a healthy option alone or combined with peanut butter, honey or yogurt.
