Let’s see what’s in my Daily Harvest shipment!
Everything was shipped in a big white box with Daily Harvest printed at the top.
Let’s open it up!
A peek inside.
A full-color brochure provided additional information on the products and what I should expect from my subscription.
All of the items were kept perfectly frozen thanks to plenty of insulation and dry ice. — The lining, food bowls, and box itself can all be recycled curbside. (The bowls are actually home compostable as well!)
Broccoli + Cheeze Harvest Bowl ($9.79)
First up, a Broccoli + Cheeze Harvest Bowl! As you can see, the full ingredient list and nutritional information is printed on each item, along with heating instructions (not shown). The Harvest Bowl only required a few minutes in the microwave and it was ready to enjoy. It featured a flavorful blend of broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potato, tomato, nutritional yeast, and more. It also contained a good amount of sunflower seeds, which at first I was a little unsure of — but it actually provided quite a satisfying crunch/added texture.
Mint + Dark, Melty Cacao Chips “Scoops” ($8.99/pint)
The next item I went for was the ice cream aka “Scoops”. Unlike typical ice cream loaded with unhealthy sugar and fat, Daily Harvest makes their version with 100% whole, nourishing ingredients. The flavor above is coconut based and features organic dark chocolate, spirulina, unrefined maple syrup, peppermint, vanilla, and more. It’s hard to tell from the photo above, but this was LOADED with cocao nibs! I love ice cream with plenty of “stuff” (texture is key!) and this one certainly delivered.
Chickpea + Coconut Curry Harvest Bake ($11.99)
Harvest Bakes are sort of like a larger version of the Harvest Bowls, but instead of heating in the microwave it needs to be baked in the oven. The serving was very generously sized and could have easily fed two people, but I somehow managed to eat almost the entire tray on my own. 😉 Needless to say, it was delicious! — Plenty of chickpeas (both “original” and green), cauliflower, sweet potatoes, bell peppers, and other veggies all coated in a creamy coconut and cashew butter base. SO good!!
Chocolate + Hazelnut Smoothie ($8.49)
I was a little hesitant to try this smoothie, as I’m not a fan of avocado. — Much to my surprise (and delight), it was completely undetectable! Once I added my preferred milk (almond) and blended it all up, the main flavors that stuck out to me were rich chocolate and pulverized hazelnuts. 😉 It had a nice, thick consistency that allowed me to eat with a spoon — making it feel more like a decadent dessert than a healthy smoothie.
Lentil + Mesquite Chili Soup ($8.49)
It appears that I forgot to snap a photo of the prepared soup, so the frozen state above will have to suffice. 😉 This soup was loaded with hearty ingredients including sweet potato, green lentils, kale, purple corn, onions, chipotle chiles, and plenty of spices. To prepare it, I simply added 1 cup of water and warmed in the microwave for about 6 minutes. Easy!
Cacao Nib + Vanilla Bites ($7.99)
Mmm… Cookie dough! “Bites” were inspired by homemade cookie dough, but are made with whole, nourishing ingredients. The flavor above features surprising ingredients like organic chickpeas, coconut, kabocha squash, maca, cacao, and vanilla bean. Do they taste as sweet/satisfying as actual cookie dough? Not exactly… But they’re great if you’re craving something a bit sweet that won’t leave you feeling guilty if you eat more than one. 😉
I really enjoyed my introduction to Daily Harvest! As a long-time vegan, it was nice knowing that I could order any of their meals and not have to double-check the ingredients. I was also happy with all of the portion sizes, which were very filling and more than enough for one person. My personal favorites were the Chickpea + Coconut Curry Harvest Bake, Chocolate + Hazelnut Smoothie, Broccoli + Cheeze Harvest Bowl, and Cacoa Nib + Vanilla Bites. 🙂 — Remember for a limited time, you can save $25 off 9 items, $30 off 14 items, or $40 off 24 items when you use coupon code “ROSEBUDS” at checkout!
