Menu, Plans, and Pricing: Daily Harvest is a frozen meal delivery service that offers a variety of plant-based meals, snacks, and desserts. The menu features smoothies, harvest bowls, oven-ready dishes, flatbreads, soups, vegan ice cream, and more. One of the best parts about Daily Harvest is that it’s always expanding its menu. Not only does it add new recipes every now and then, but it also launches new categories. Some items, like smoothies, require minimal prep while others, such as chia bowls, need to be defrosted or soak overnight. Daily Harvest has three delivery options: nine, 14, or 24 items per order. Each product has its own price, but costs usually range from $6 to $9 each. 

What Writer Madison Yauger Liked: “Daily Harvest is great for people focusing on a plant-based diet. It does a really good job of creating staple meals like soups and flatbreads using premium ingredients like kale, cauliflower, and sweet potatoes. The menu is varied with options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even dessert, so there’s plenty of variety.” 

What Madison Didn’t Like: “The portions can be a little small, as they’re designed to reduce food waste, so for hearty eaters, some of the meals may not be enough. However, Daily Harvest released new oven-ready meals this month with significantly larger servings.”

Favorite Meal Madison Tried: Spiced pear & cranberry and strawberry & peach smoothies
