Breakfast With Markus Rothkranz and Cara Brotman

Markus Rothkranz and Cara reveal what they eat for breakfast, and how you can make the same delicious foods.

The video starts with Cara demonstrating how she makes her mixed fruit salad with cashew cream. The fruits will vary by season. In the video she mixes mangoes, blueberries, banana slices, raspberry, kiwi, and strawberries. Those are mixed up in a large bowl.

She makes the cashew cream by first soaking a lot of cashews in water. She adds alcohol-free vanilla and a little sweetener. She prefers maple syrup, but you can also use xylitol or honey. She puts two cups of cashews into a blender, then adds a little vanilla and sweetener. The cashew cream tastes better when it’s cold. Therefore, she usually makes it at night so she can refrigerate it overnight. If you make the cashew cream in the morning, add ice to the blender as well. Start off with just a little bit of water, and add more as you blend the cashews. If you dump in all the ice at once, the cashews don’t blend well. Continue to add water and blend the cashews until the cream is the thickness and consistency you like.

Pour the cashew cream over the fruit in the bowl. Add pomegranate powder, mulberries and candied almonds. Those are dehydrated almonds made with maple syrup. Cacau nibs also work well as a topping. The results looks delicious. As Cara said, “It’s so rich, but so good for you.”

Then Markus demonstrates how he makes his favorite breakfast, a green smoothie. He uses a Vita-Mix. His basic concept is half greens, half fruit. He puts in a large amount of spinach, kale, carrot tops, red leaf lettuce, celery, parsley and dandelion greens. Always include at least one stick of celery. For liquid, use coconut water, orange juice or plain water.

He also includes the powders that he sells, the Wild Force Green Formula and the Super Plant Protein. He also adds some Udo’s Oil for essential fatty acids. Then he adds fruit, including pineapple, banana, cranberries and berries.

He blends everything up, and drinks a glass right there. The rest he pours into glasses to take with him to drink during the rest of the day.
