Raw Caco and Maca Cloud ~ Free + Native December 4, 2013 by Shiva Rose Lacy Phillips is a busy beauty creating healthy, nutritious, organic treats and goodies on her blog Free + Native. Here is her delicious version of a maca smoothie. I was thinking of it as a warm holiday drink, but as Lacy mentioned that would take away the raw nutritional value. I like to have some sort of maca smoothie either in the morning or as an afternoon pick me up. This is the perfect recipe for one!
