Coffee flavored with orange syrup, frothed with a chocolate milk and topped with whipped cream, chocolate syrup and orange zest.
Heartfelt thanks to Ninja for sending me their new Ninja Coffee Bar to make this delicious Orange Mocha Latte!
I don’t typically treat myself to coffee from the gourmet coffee shops. Oh, sure, I indulge in a Pumpkin Spice Latte to welcome the fall, or maybe an iced coffee splurge in the heat of the summer, but typically I make coffee at home in the morning, and I almost always drink it black. And strong.
When I began seeing the commercials last year for the new Ninja Coffee Bar, I was immediately intrigued.
Sofia Vergara boasted about rich brews of coffee and recipes to make those specialty brews right in your own kitchen.
I HAD to have it someday.

Last November I attended BlogHerFood15 in Chicago. A conference for food bloggers …and OH My! — the food and the venders! We were spoiled rotten. I rounded the corner on the first day, making my way through the seas of people and venders, and what did I spy? They had a demo for the new Ninja Coffee Bar!
After the conference, Ninja asked if they could send me a Coffee Bar to try out for myself. We LOVE it!
As a thank you, I developed a recipe for my favorite long lost specialty brew, that I used to enjoy years ago. Starbucks had something very similar, then they quit making it.
I bring you the Orange Mocha Latte!
Setting the coffee bar to “travel mug” and “specialty brew” I brewed the perfect amount of rich dark coffee. Using the specialty brew setting insures that your coffee won’t become diluted by other ingredients you add to the cup, therefore losing that rich coffee flavor we desire.
I love the frother that comes with the coffee bar. It’s so simple to use. Simply add milk to the frother, microwave til hot for your favorite hot drinks, and plunge to get the perfect topping.
