DIY Coffee Cart & Juice Bar For a Simple, Minimalist Morning
2022 is all about pausing and simplicity. Join me as I share the DIY coffee cart I created in my kitchen to get ideas for a beautiful, simple coffee and juice bar. You'll love having everything you need all in one organized space.
I've set up my coffee bar to be very simple. It's clean, it's natural looking, and it's a refreshing look. It's a great way for me to start my morning.
I bought the cart itself from Goodwill for $14.99. I still can't believe I was able to get such a great deal on a great IKEA cart.
On the top shelf, I have my Keurig and my mugs next to it. I got the coffee mug stand at Goodwill a couple of months ago, which is perfect because I love my mugs, and it's a great way to keep them handy. I drink my favorite coffee, pumpkin spice, from them. I also love cinnamon in my coffee, so I also keep it on the coffee bar.
I have a little placemat for the Keurig to sit on. I got a set of them at Walmart several years ago. It's a cute little round mat for the coffeemaker, and I added a pretty little pot of greenery.
The coffee cart has a drawer under the top shelf. My two favorites are in this drawer - hot coffee and iced tea. I keep my K-cups in it, my favorite being McDonald's coffee. Next to the K-cups, I have a lot of iced teas and Equal sweetener.
I love having a lot of tea. I have all of my tea on the second shelf of my coffee bar. In a wooden box, I have an array of different teas ranging from decaf to chai teas, green teas, and some matcha tea. I have all of my favorite teas that I drink weekly.
Down below, on the third shelf, I have a little basket with some decor because this is just in my dining area.
I am in a season of moving toward plant-based eating, so with that, I want to do more juicing. I set up a juice bar on the counter next to the coffee bar. I have a Hamilton Beach blender on one side of the counter. It's a tiny and minimalist, simple little blender. It's great because I can take the container part of it on the go to work.
I also added a lovely little candle that's refreshing to the space. I also have a plug-in nightlight. I love turning on the light in the morning. It's a calm way of starting the day.
On the other side of the counter, I have a little basket I got at Goodwill. It's a very simple, clean, crisp-type basket. In the basket, I always like to have bananas and coconut oil. I use coconut oil in my coffee, cooking, or even sometimes; put a pinch of it in my smoothies. There are so many benefits of coconut oil. I also have wheatgrass because I use a lot of it in my smoothies.
In the cabinet above the juice bar, I keep supplements that I add to my smoothies. One of my favorite collagen proteins is from Neocell. You can get that from Amazon. It's very healthy with 10 grams of collagen. It's great for healthy skin, hair, nails, and joint support. I also love having cacao powder on hand. That's one of the favorites that I'll put in a morning coffee with a banana and a little bit of collagen. It's a great way to start your morning with a little bit of coffee and a sweet little punch of energy. I also keep some of the vitamins that I take.
I want to share one of my favorite smoothies I love to drink for a pre-workout. First, make a cup of coffee. I use the McCafe blend. Pour it into the blender. You're going to use your protein of choice. I like the Neocell brand of collagen. Add half a banana, then put a few cubes of ice and milk of choice. I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk and Navitas organic cacao powder. It has 45 grams (1.5oz) of protein and is plant-based. Put that in the blender and blend until smooth. Pour it in a glass, drink it, and you are ready to go for a great workout.
