Review: Daily Harvest Meal Delivery

Daily Harvest is a company that supplies you with healthy frozen “good food”. I loved that most of the ingredients were clean and organic. I also loved the prep time being less than 5 minutes because I really don’t have a lot of time to do food prepping on the weekends.

There are a few different plans to choose from: weekly cups (6, 9, and 12) or once monthly (24 cups). The price per cup goes down the more you buy. I went all in and ordered the monthly 24 cups. I paid $142.76 because I had a promo code for $25 off my first purchase. You can also get this special if you decide to order!

Use code RE-MMLGEB6 for $25 off your first Daily Harvest order!

  • Chocolate Protein + Almond Chia Bowl: I made this one as an overnight bowl and a hot bowl. I was not a fan of either. It wasn’t the chia; it was the bananas. The bananas just overpowered the taste of whole bowl and they were super clumpy and mushy. The cacao nibs were there, but they were tasteless. I won’t be ordering this one again. (2 out of 10)
  • Mulberry + Dragonfruit Oatmeal: This one was delicious, comforting, fresh and super filling. Everything from Daily Harvest is so fresh. I even saw a stem on one of the mulberries. These are not like normal processed frozen items. (10 out of 10)
  • Cold Brew + Almond Smoothie: I liked this one for the mornings, but it didn’t have enough protein or fiber to keep me full. The taste was a little off and I am not a fan of any of these smoothies/bowls that contain banana. This smoothie was okay, but not amazing enough to buy again. (6 out of 10)
  • Cauliflower Rice + Pesto: I had this bowl for lunch at work and it was fantastic. Their was a little bit of a weird taste somewhere in there though. I think it might’ve been the lemon. It was filling and I would definitely buy this one again. (8 out of 10)
  • Broccoli Rice + Dill Pilaf: This was by far my favorite harvest bowl. It was savory and nutty and really filling. I love these bowls because you can warm them up on the stove or in the microwave. They don’t seem like microwave meals at all. (10 out of 10)
  • Brussels Sprouts + Tahini: This one was o.k. Nothing to write home about. I do love that the majority of the ingredients in these harvest bowls are organic. (7 out of 10)

Overall, I was very pleased with this company, the ingredients, and the prep time for the meals. My only issue is the price. I must be honest and say the initial $25 off was the reason why I tried the service in the first place. I calculated the $167.76 for Daily Harvest in my budget, and I can afford it, but I don’t think it’s worth nearly $200–even if I’m saving time.

I did find that I LOVE the overnight oat bowls Daily Harvest offers, so I am going to try and replicate those at home for much less. In fact, if I was to order again, the bulk of my orders would be the oat bowls. However, I can prep and make them for much less than the regular Daily Harvest price of $167.76 for 24 cups.

My review of the company and service is good. I’m not going to order again because, I just can’t bring myself to spend nearly $200 on oat bowls and a cold brew smoothie I kinda liked. The price-point is fair for the quality of ingredients you get. Yet, they are too expensive for items I can pretty much replicate on my own.
