I recently got introduced to Daily Harvest, a NYC based company that made it its mission to bring healthy food directly to it’s costumers’ fridges and freezers. The first line of products, is a subscription based smoothie membership. You can basically chose between a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly membership with 6, 12 or 18 smoothies per box. The smoothies come in little cups, pre portioned and filled with frozen fruit, veggies and super foods. Everything you need to do is open them, add your preferred soy or nut milk, blend for 30 seconds – et voilà!
The reason why I love the brand is because it makes healthy eating easy and convenient; no need for planning, no need for grocery shopping, no need for recipe browsing and no need to chop your ingredients. Not that doing all of these things can’t be a lot of time but let’s be honest, it’s also often our biggest barrier for a healthy lifestyle.
Daily Harvest makes sure all of it’s ingredients are organic, vegan and of highest quality. Also, frozen veggies and fruit is usually even healthier for you than fresh one, because it gets frozen right when it comes of the farm so it’s vitamins and minerals are fully preserved.
The company currently offers 14 flavors, all of them contain a super food such as chia, cacao or even coffee beans. I had the chance to try a couple of them and must say that my favorites are the Wake & Cake as well as the Matcha Colada. The Wake & Cake seriously tastes like carrot cake in a cup – the mix of dates, carrots and sweet potatoes makes it delicious and so filling! The Matcha Colada is more on the refreshing side and it’s super energizing as well. For everyone with more of a sweet tooth – aka my husband – go with the Chocolate Lovah. Besides chocolate it also contains blueberries and dates. I love to use coconut milk for the smoothies but almond milk, or any other nut milk for that matter, works great as well.
By the way, the idea came from the fact that Rachel used to make smoothies for her husband in the morning but they were on two different schedules so she just prepped and froze his ingredients ahead of time. Awesome, right?
