Imperial Superpower Cappuccino Recipe

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you combined a few superpower foods together? Maybe you haven’t, but I could not help but wonder what would happen if I did just that. So, I whipped up one of the most energy loaded drinks–a superfood cappuccino.

When I am created this drink  and I loved its taste and creaminess, I gave it to Hubby to taste.

“How is it?” I asked after the first couple of sips.

“Boom!” he replied. “It’s like a wake-up call.”

When he was done with his cappuccino, he wanted more, and said he would love to have one every day. Since I whipped it up late in the evening, I cautioned him to be content with just one serving, or risk being up all night.

Chef’s Notes:

  1. You do not need a cappuccino maker to whip up this delicious drink!
  2. This cappuccino is made without coffee, but it will keep you buzzing nevertheless.
  3. Do not drink it late at night–you might not get a wink of sleep!
  4. It should be enjoyed as a treat, since cacao is still a stimulant.
  5. I specify which brands of superfoods and equipment I used to make this recipe a success, in the recipe. Feel free to substitute them with other brands, if you already have them on hand.
  6. I will describe benefits of each superfood under the recipe, so it will make sense why I chose to combine them.
  7. If you would love to pin this recipe to your favorite drinks Pinterest board, you will see a pin-able image at the bottom of this post.

Imperial Superpower Cappuccino

yields 3 servings




  • 2 cups of hot water
  • 2 tbsp of dark cacao powder (I used Penzey’s Spices brand)
  • 1 tbsp red gelatinized The Maca Team’s maca powder
  • 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2-1 tsp of cinnamon powder (I used 1/2 tsp)
  • 1 scoop of Ancient Wisdom superfood
  • 1/4 cashew nuts (for milky creaminess)


Chef’s Notes Addendum:

I used gelatinized maca because the recipe uses hot water, so, using raw maca in a hot recipe would have killed enzymes anyway. Instead of wasting the goodness of raw powder, I choose gelatinized option, because:

  • it is easier to digest — the starch is removed making maca powder easier to digest
  • it has more concentrated nutrients – the absence of starch means that gram for gram, gelatinized maca is more concentrated than raw maca

I have been using The Maca Team’s maca for the last few weeks and love how noninvasive its smell and taste are. It was not even detectable in this cappuccino. You can see why I picked The Maca Team maca products in a recent review post.
