This is how it looks like after blending, a green-colored smoothie!
The banana’s sweetness masked the slight bitterness from the greens but the delightful earthy taste is still present. It’s cool and refreshing, and it feels good in the gut. It also has a citrus-forward flavor.

Brussels Sprouts + Lime Pad Thai Harvest Bowl. One of the most popular food in Thailand, Pad Thai is a stir-fry noodle dish that usually contains meat like chicken, beef, shrimp, or tofu, peanuts, eggs, and bean sprouts, but for this bowl, we’ll have an all-veggie ensemble!
This healthy Pad Thai version contains organic brussels sprouts, organic kale, organic carrots, kelp, organic almond butter, jalapeno, ginger puree, organic tamari (water, soybeans, salt, alcohol [to preserve freshness]), organic toasted sesame oil, organic lime juice, water, organic cilantro, almond, and soy.

You can throw all the contents in a microwave-safe bowl and start heat on high in 4 minutes. You can also heat the contents using a stovetop.
After heating, you can stir all the contents together and enjoy, or put it back on the cup, close the lid, and bring it wherever you’ll go!
This meal has 13g of protein, healthy fats, iron, and iodine. The flavor is amazing, it tastes similar to the real thing!
Broccoli + Cheese Harvest Bowl. Mac ‘n Cheese is definitely one of the best dishes that we won’t mind having all the time. For those cutting the calories and sticking to an all-veg diet, this harvest bowl is perfect as it replaced the starchy pasta with healthy broccoli!
This meal includes the following ingredients: organic broccoli, organic cauliflower, organic sweet potato puree, organic sunflower seeds, organic red pepper puree, water, organic celery, organic sunflower seed butter (organic sunflower seeds, organic sunflower oil), garlic, organic tomato paste (organic tomato paste, citric acid), organic extra virgin olive oil, organic lemon juice, nutritional yeast, and Himalayan sea salt.
Aside from broccoli, there are some cauliflower florets as well!
Yum! The cheese sauce jived perfectly with all the veggies in this bowl. I love the umami taste, the combination of sweet potatoes, bell peppers, and the crush from the florets. It’s simply filling and delicious. It also has vitamins A and C that are good for the immune system.
Cauliflower Rice + Pesto Harvest Bowl. Cauliflower is a good alternative to rice and other grains. Cauliflower rice is fast becoming a favorite in many health and wellness circles. Add pesto into the mix and you’re going to get a flavorful meal that is packed with nutrients. This is a low-carb meal, perfect for fans of Italian cuisine.
This bowl has organic cauliflower rice, organic spinach, organic basil, sun-dried tomatoes, organic extra virgin olive oil, organic cashew butter, garlic, organic lemon juice, Himalayan sea salt, nutritional yeast, organic black pepper, and cashew.
When we opened the cup, there were greens and sun-dried tomato on top. They looked vibrant!
The ingredients are all layered together in the cup. They may look unappetizing as of now, but wait until you cook it over your stovetop or heat it up in your microwave.
Cauliflower and pesto have never been this yummy and easy to prepare. This is great for those busy days when you just need a little help with your meals. Of course, after heating, they look more mouthwatering!

It’s a good thing that we can enjoy these treats right out of the freezer! They look great and we can’t help but grab one and take a bite! The cacao nibs definitely gave crunch to each piece while the vanilla bean and dates added a touch of sweetness. These snack bites even help boost one’s mood because of flaxseed and maca!

As always, the contents of the cup are well-sealed!
Upon opening the cup, the mouthwatering sight of nuts, apple pieces, pumpkin seeds, and chia seeds welcomed us.
To prepare, just transfer the contents of the cup into a bowl and add milk. Then heat on a stovetop or a microwave.
Mix and dig in! This is a perfect breakfast bowl, because there was a satisfying crunch from the pumpkin seeds and walnuts, while almond butter provides the protein we need.
Cauliflower + Leek Stew Soup. Who wouldn’t want a hearty and warm bowl of soup before a meal, or even as a snack? This is Daily Harvest’s take on potato leek soup, but instead of starchy potatoes, they replaced them with a healthier option: cauliflower!
The hearty soup has organic cauliflower puree, organic celeriac, organic spinach, leeks, yellow onions, nutritional yeast, Himalayan sea salt, garlic, organic chives, and organic white pepper.

The cup can be filled up with water or broth before transferring to a pot or a microwave-safe bowl.
The frozen contents inside the cup look great!
We opted to heat the soup using our microwave and just after 5 minutes, our soup was hot and ready!
Look at that spoonful of greens, leeks, and onions! It was quite filling!
Daily Harvest proves that incorporating healthy food into one’s diet can really be easy. Their smoothies, bowls, and soups only take minutes to prepare, and you can also easily pack them to enjoy on the go. These healthy food offerings make a great alternative to your usual meals, without sacrificing the taste. They also make you feel full and energized to go through the day! We really like the smoothie combinations, especially the berry ones. The mint cacao tastes like dessert as well. Meanwhile, the bites are good snack foods, in place of chips and chocolates. Another food we enjoyed is the soup bowl. It’s really warm and filling, perfect comfort food to enjoy during a cold day. Among the bowls, we love their version of “mac n’ cheese” where they replaced the mac with broccoli and cauliflower florets. We’re excited about the changes they’ve made, which will appear it our next box! It’s great to know that they’re switching to compostable packaging and that they’re updating their serving sizes too!
This might be a pricier option, but one of the things I really noticed is that the chop on every single piece is designed to ensure your meal is cooked perfectly. Overall I’ve been impressed with this subscription’s offerings and if you’re willing to stomach the price of the meals, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it, plus you get to try new food combinations that will surely please your tastebuds as well.
