How Daily Harvest Works

Daily Harvest is a subscription service that allows you to choose between 3 subscription options, depending on your needs. You can opt for a weekly subscription and receive 6 or 12 cups of flash-frozen, unrefined, organic ingredients ready to soak, heat or blend, or decide on a monthly subscription that brings you 24 cups of superfood goodness.

Apart from picking the number of cups you wish to receive, you also get to pick the recipes you like. You can order cupfuls of ingredients perfect for smoothies, chia parfaits, soups or delicious overnight oats. There are around 2 dozen recipes at your disposal, all perfectly healthy and extremely good for you.

The subscriptions are as flexible as they can be. You can change the number of cups you want to receive, skip a week of deliveries or cancel your subscription whenever you wish, as long as you do it before the weekly cutoff time (Saturday, 6 p.m. EST).

Daily Harvest how it work

What Makes Daily Harvest Different

There are many meal deliveries out there claiming to offer healthy meals made of premium-quality ingredients. However, most of them still use refined goods and flavor enhancers to make their food taste better. Daily Harvest does nothing to diminish the nutritional value of the produce it uses. There are no refined ingredients and everything in the cups is completely natural and devoid of any potentially harmful substances.

Daily Harvest takes healthy eating seriously, which is why it has an in-house chef and an in-house nutritionist working together to create perfect combinations of equally perfect ingredients. All of the recipes they come up with are incredibly nutritious and healthy, but they are also incredibly flavorful and satisfying. Their job is to show Daily Harvest customers that food that is good for you can taste amazing and they excel at what they do.

Frozen food is something many people dread, with all the poor-quality frozen meals giving it a bad name. Daily Harvest works hard on proving that frozen food can be just as good as the fresh kind. The ingredients used for its recipes are picked at peak maturity and flash-frozen in order to keep all the valuable nutrients inside, so none of the goodness is lost in the process. Keep in mind that the content of the cups is not meant to be defrosted. Use them fresh from the box or your freezer, so you can make the most out of their healthy content.

The gift of food is possibly the best gift of all, especially if it’s super-healthy, delicious, and comes in a handy cup. You can send Daily Harvest gift cards to the people you care about and allow them to pick the smoothies and soups they want to have delivered to their doorstep. A healthy, handy, instant gift practically anyone would appreciate.

Another wonderful feature of the Daily Harvest menu is its suitability for various special dietary needs. Read more about this in the following section of this Daily Harvest review.

Meals and Recipes

As mentioned before in this Daily Harvest review, no matter which subscription plan you choose, you get to pick what you eat. All menu items are at your disposal, all of them including 100% natural, non-GMO, organic ingredients. Before you choose a cup, you can read detailed information about each ingredient and feel even better about your choice, knowing it can do wonders for your body.

Daily Harvest Meals

At the moment, Daily Harvest offers 23 different recipes: 14 smoothies, 3 chia parfaits, 3 different overnight oats, and 3 soups. They come in pre-portioned, single-serving cups ready to be popped into the freezer or enjoyed the same day.

When it comes to preparation, it comprises 2 simple steps – add liquid of your choice and blend, soak or heat. You can combine your smoothie cups with water or milk of any kind (coconut, almond, dairy, you name it), add the base of your choice to your soups, and turn any cup into whatever you want it to be. Your delicious meal is ready in minutes, with hardly any work and without any mess to clean up.

The recipes are perfect for all kinds of special diets. They are all vegan-friendly and all bowls are suitable for the Paleo and vegetarian diets. The Daily Harvest menu is completely dairy-free, gluten-free, and soy-free (with the exception of Mushroom + Miso soup). Soon, it will also be kosher-certified and fully organic-certified. Unfortunately, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients, there is nothing Daily Harvest can do about it at the moment – the recipes cannot be altered to accommodate your needs.

Pricing

If you opt for weekly deliveries of 6 cups, you pay $7.99 per cup. Weekly deliveries of 12 cups come at the price of $7.49 per cup. The monthly subscription for 24 cups is the most affordable option and it costs $6.99 per cup. Shipping is always free, so you only end up paying for what you eat.

    Like many other people have noted, this company is a total scam. I just wanted to try the product, so after placing my first I tried to call to let them know. Guess what? They have NO PHONE NUMBER. No way to call and ask questions! Ok, so I try the “Chat” feature on their website. Guess what? IT IS DISABLED. during normal business hours. So I email them to say “Please do not put me on auto ship/auto pay.” Here is my written request to stop payment. But no — Daily Harvest says you have to log in to your account, you have to tell us why you want to cancel first, etc. Basically you must jump through hoops to cancel. And of course, I was sent and billed for a second shipment. Customer service is horrible (as others have noted, they must be trained this way), so I had to file a complaint with the BBB. Credit card company also refunded the second shipment in full since it was unauthorized. They said that Daily Harvest should have complied with my written request to stop auto ship/auto pay.

    Very bland taste and the servings are on the smaller side.
  • Submitted By Sean Austin on 08/25/2017
    The cups turned soggy almost immediately after we poured the smoothie from the blender.
  • Submitted By Erica Oliver on 08/18/2017
    The prices aren't exactly afordable but they're still a far cry from heading over to juice press and burning 10 bucks on a smoothie.
  • Submitted By Gloria Hart on 08/05/2017
    I really like the taste (especially melon) and the fact that all ingredients are 100% organic
  • Submitted By Jeremy Wagner on 07/31/2017
    The smoothies are amazing but they really need to work on their miso soup.
  • Submitted By Evelyn Lane on 07/19/2017
    The smoothies are fine, nothing special but fine. The customer service on the other hand doesn't really put any effort into correcting hiccups. If you have a problem they basically say it's too bad and leave it at that.
  • Submitted By Kyle Gardner on 07/02/2017
    I really enjoy my smoothies and can even take them to work since they come in these convenient cups.
  • Submitted By Megan Carrol on 06/21/2017
    I'm really into smoothies and daily harvest doesn't disappoint. I especially like the sheer selection of different ingredients and blends.
  • Submitted By Joe Lane on 05/10/2017
    Being able to skip a week is pretty convenient for me since I'm regularly traveling for work. Had to buy a blender, though, just for daily harvest.
  • Submitted By Farah Smith on 03/29/2017
    Thought it would taste better, had to add pricy bone broth to the soups to make them taste even remotely good.
  • Submitted By Gavin Samms on 01/22/2017
    Have been ordering for a month or so and I feel much lighter and better than usual. Not too pricy either, especially when compared to the alternatives.
  • Submitted By Martin Walters on 01/06/2017
    It’s really convenient and all, but some of the smoothies are bland as hell.
