We are huge coffee fans and we love our k-cup brewer, but it is kind of a one trick pony. It can make a good cup of coffee in no time, but what if I want a coffee shop inspired drink? Yeah the k-cup brewer can’t really handle that, but the Ninja Coffee Bar System can. First let’s discuss some of the unique features of this system and then we will get on to the mouthwatering drinks we made. A Ninja exclusive is Cafe Forte which is a unique brewing technology that amplifies each beans unique, natural flavor. We found that if you are a fan of the darker roast coffees, like my husband then the Cafe Forte brews a very deep, rich coffee that even further intensifies the dark roast. The frother built into the Ninja that helps us make so many coffee house drinks is unique because it does not use steam like many others so it can froth even hot or cold milk and does an amazing job. The Ninja Coffee Bar System includes a carafe for brewing multiple cups of coffee, but it also offers the versatility of brewing a single cup using any brand of coffee you like and the ability to customize the flavor to your liking. Now on to those drinks!
We love hold and cold beverages and the first one we made was this Cappuccino Style Coffee which is simply 1/2 cup of milk frothed for 30 seconds and the you brew your favorite coffee on the specialty setting into the froth so that the coffee rises up through the froth. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon as we did or even some powdered cocoa.
The second beverage we made and one of our favorites that really showcases what the Ninja Coffee Bar System can do is the Too Good Toffee Coffee. As you can see in the pic this looks like a $5 cup of coffee that I made in my jammies without ever leaving the comfort of my home and it did not cost anywhere near $5. Using the rich brew setting, again with my favorite coffee and caramel syrup, dark brown sugar, vanilla extract and salt I made this beverage that any barista would be happy to call their own.
Now on to our favorite cold beverage from the Ninja Coffee Bar System, it is the Mocha Ninjaccino. A few cups of ice, some chocolate syrup, whipped cream mixed with our favorite coffee brewed on the specialty setting made an amazing dessert like coffee that the whole family loved.
The Nutri Ninja Nutri Bowl DUO is the perfect compliment to the Coffee Bar System mixing up that Mocha Ninjaccino in no time. Not only is the Nutri Bowl DUO great for mixing coffee beverages, I love it for my morning smoothies thanks to the (2) 24oz. Titan Nutri Ninja Cups with their spout lids I can make a huge smoothie or iced coffee and take it on the go. The Nutri Ninja DUO is also an excellent food processor, allowing me to mix up sauces, dips and more in no time at all and what I love is its small size and the easy cleanup. The powerful 1200 watt motor means it has what it takes to power through ice and frozen fruit it even includes a dough hook for the 4 cup Nutri Bowl so you can whip up doughs in no time.
