Ever since my Ninja Coffee Bar got shipped, I’ve been dying to know it inside out. So, I just installed it last week and if you guys are having a hard time doing it, then just check another one of my posts here. Being an avid coffee drinker, I just couldn’t contain myself from trying out some new coffee recipes. And if my blabbering makes you say, “me too”, then you’ve found your happy place.
All you must do is just set the mood right and get the ingredients required because we’re going to be brewing two next-level coffee specialties. So, get ready to bring out that hidden Barista in you!
- Mocha Latte
I am sure you might have seen this fancy drink on the menu cards of some of your favorite coffee houses. One of the good things about this drink is that it gives your tongue the relish of different specialties like cappuccino, espresso, mocha and latte in just one sip. Woah! Let’s try it out already!
- Milk- ½ cup 1%
- Ground Coffee- 4 tablespoons
- Chocolate Syrup- 1 tablespoon
- Firstly, make sure you have ground coffee at home and, then measure it with the Ninja Scoop. You might have found one in your package.
- You should measure 4 single-serve scoops of ground coffee and place it in the brew basket.
- Now, the chocolate syrup (why do I feel hungry so suddenly?) Pour some into your mug. (without drooling)
- And set your mug in the right place to brew. (Yay!)
- Now that you’ve got a hang of your newest coffee machine, set the brew size (on the display) as Travel Mug and your brew type as (bottommost)
- Your coffee is brewing **butterflies in the stomach** and you must froth the milk.
- You should now pour out ½ cup milk into the glass jar of Ninja Easy Frother which also you would have found in your package.
- Three simple steps: microwave the milk on high for 1 minute; remove and secure the lid; pump the Frother 15 times. (Phew! All good?)
- The froth in the milk was smooth and I just couldn’t wait to mix it with my brew.
- After the brew is done (longest brew cycle of my life), pour the smooth, frothed milk gently into the brew mixture.
- Let the foam be on top and you are all set to have your first sip.
- I topped my Latte with whipped cream and the flavor got to a whole new level.
I also tried Iced Mocha Latte from this video which also turned out amazing. Try it out, its super easy!
- Caramel Macchiato
Uh-huh! That’s exactly what they serve you at Starbucks **starry-eyed** and if this isn’t a blessing, I don’t know what is. I used a shot of espresso and a caramel topping to prepare this “cup of happiness”.
- Milk- ½ cup 1%
- Ground Coffee- 3 tablespoons
- Caramel Sauce- 2 tablespoons (psst.. you may need more)
- First off, you need to measure the ground coffee in the Smart Scoop 3 times (remember! Single-serve)
- Don’t get too jumpy, you don’t want to spoil your drink. (been there)
- Now your mug should be placed in the right position on your coffee machine for the brew to settle.
- Your near-expert tag is just a step away if you correctly select the brew size i.e. Cup and your brew type i.e. Specialty. (hurray! You passed)
- Now, the core. All you must do is froth the milk with caramel sauce in it. This sounds so yum!
- Key-Step: You must microwave the milk on high for 1 minute first.
- Put the microwaved milk in the glass jar and using your Ninja Easy Frother, pump 15 times. It’s easy and fun.
- If you’re using a Built-In Frother (lucky you), then you really have nothing to worry about. Just take the milk near the Frother and it will whisk the milk automatically with just the press of a button.
- The wait is over. (thankfully) Our brew is ready and all you now must do is gently pour frothed mixture into the coffee.
- Well, take your time admiring the froth and beauty of your coffee. I even drizzled some extra caramel sauce for the sake of sweetness. (It looked pretty, actually)
I know you guys have already planned to invite friends over and I hope my culinary expertise (without doubt) helped you make the best out of your Coffee Bar. It indeed is a “coffeehouse on your countertop” as they say. Also, your Instagram handle is going to get a lot cooler and obviously fit the bill with all the complementary awesomeness.
