The Fuel: Acai-Banana-Blueberry Smoothie

Why it Works: It’s filled with all the nutrients I need to succeed.

Why she loves it: Fueling my body is extremely important to me. It's what allows me to perform as an athlete, coach, and mum! This smoothie tastes great and gives me what I need to thrive.
