In this video, lifestyle guru, motivational speaker, and YouTube star Markus Rothkranz shares another one of his healthy and delicious recipes. He shows viewers how to make macaroni and cheese that is gluten-free, dairy-free, raw, and vegan as a way to satisfy cravings in a healthy way.
Markus uses cashews, pine nuts, nutritional yeast, paprika, turmeric, lemon, sea salt, water, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, and coconut meat for this recipe. First he makes the “noodles” from the rubbery meat of a young Thai coconut. He cuts the meat into strips, then into inch-long rectangles. He then puts the rest of the recipe ingredients into the blender to make the “cheese sauce.” Markus suggests using a really strong blender like a VitaMix to ensure everything blends well and the sauce is not chunky. Simply pour the sauce onto the coconut “noodles” and you have a bowl of yummy mac and cheese without the dairy or wheat. Markus actually notes that the sauce tastes sweet like dessert.
Near the end of the video, Markus lets a kid taste test his mac and cheese recipe to prove that it actually tastes good. The little boy happily eats the whole bowl and does a dance as he says how much he likes the mac and cheese. He even talks to his mom off-camera asking if she will make him this dish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and if he can take a jar of the mac and cheese home with them. Markus then suggests putting the mac and cheese in a jar to store in the fridge and says you can eat it on the go as well.
