Daily Harvest Review 2022: Feel-Good Food Delivered to Your Door

Written by: Steph Gregerson on Sep 4th, 2022

Daily Harvest Review 2022: Feel-Good Food Delivered to Your Door

Overview

Update June 2022: French Lentil + Leek Crumbles meal has been temporarily discontinued due to several customers reporting adverse reactions. If you’ve already ordered this meal, please do not consume it. Daily Harvest is conducting an internal and external investigation to determine why this happened. We’ll update this review once we have more information.

You might have seen Daily Harvest pop up on your social feeds – with its colorful smoothies, tasty-looking ingredients, and promise of convenience. But is it worth the hype?

When founder, Rachel Drori, launched the company, she wanted to create decadent but healthy snacks that deliver the nutrition you need without the junk you don’t.

Now there are more options than ever on the menu, including prepared meals, frozen treats, and drinks. Each item is made using sustainably sourced produce and requires little-to-no prep to be able to enjoy.

If you’ve tried the smoothies and grain bowls from Sunbasket and enjoyed them, Daily Harvest could be a great service to try, since it offers tons more items and flavor combinations. It’s great for stocking up.

Read on to get all the information about the offerings and find out whether the healthy convenience is really worth the price.

Pros

Cons

  • A lot of freezer space required to store the food

  • Prices are quite high 

  • Single-serve containers result in a lot of waste 

Daily Harvest Is Best For

  • Busy people in need of quick, healthy meals and snacks

  • Anyone wanting to eat more fruit and veg

  • Smoothie lovers who like to switch up flavors often

  • Anyone looking for desk-friendly breakfasts and lunches

Daily Harvest May Not Be Great For

  • Families 

  • Those on a budget 

What’s on the Daily Harvest Menu

Daily Harvest has expanded its menu to offer 12 different categories, including Lattes, Bites, Forager Bowls, Harvest Bakes, and more – and you can mix and match these products.

It’s smoothies are the original product and there are 27 different flavor combinations to choose from, including some seasonal flavors that rotate throughout the year. You can choose from the two almond mylks available – or you can use your own at home.

If you want to stock up on hot food, you can pick from the Harvest Bowls, Harvest Bakes, Flatbreads, Soups, and Forager Bowls. These veg-packed meals arrive frozen and can be heated on the stove-top, or in a microwave or oven.

Look out for super-nourishing and hearty dishes like the Sweet Potato + Wild Rice Hash Harvest Bowl, or the Artichoke + Spinach Flatbread – all of them are great for both lunch and dinner.

When you want a little something sweet, choose between the breakfast-friendly Oat Bowls and Chia Bowls, or the Scoops and Bites. The last two are a Daily Harvest take on ice cream and cookies, with plenty of different flavors available.

Unlike Sunbasket, which offers traditional meal kits, protein packs, and seasonal store-cupboard essentials to feed the whole family, Daily Harvest focuses primarily on single-serving meals.

Each item is portioned for one and is meant to be an easy, nutritious option for when you need something quick. 

Unboxing

All Daily Harvest’s foods are packed with dry ice, so they stay frozen during the commute. When it comes to unboxing, the toughest part is finding the room in your freezer!

Everything was arranged nicely and clearly labeled. All the ingredients and the prep and/or heating instructions are clearly printed on the side of each product.

Each item is packaged individually, which makes things convenient but it also takes up a lot of space. You’ll need to make sure you have plenty of room to store the meals, and you’ll find there’s a lot of recycling to do once they’ve been enjoyed!

For comparison, most meal delivery services, including Sunbasket, send chilled meals to be stored in the refrigerator.

Daily Harvest’s meals are frozen to lock in the goodness and – if you have the room to store them – this means you can probably order more items less regularly (i.e. monthly instead of weekly) and they’ll stay fresh.

Cooking & Eating with Daily Harvest

The smoothies from Daily Harvest were my favorite. The Strawberry + Peach is a classic combination, and my other favorite was the Pineapple + Matcha which claims to taste like a Green Tea Piña Colada – and it kind of does!

Each smoothie is packed with organic fruits we know and love, as well as some ingredients you wouldn’t suspect, like cauliflower, sweet potato, and pine pollen.

I also tried a few of the Harvest Bowls, and the Cauliflower Rice + Pesto was my favorite of these. The bowls are great hot, savory options that make perfect lunches and dinners. I’d love to try the veggie-topped flatbreads with a future order as well.

What I loved most about Daily Harvest is the variety and flexibility. You can order an entire box of smoothies or soups, or you can mix and match the products to try something of each. Plus, there’s a great range of snacks for when you’re on the go.

Everything is quick and easy, and all items can be prepared or cooked from frozen. The smoothies just require some added liquid (for example, water or milk) and then it all goes into  the blender.

The bowls and soups can go in the microwave, while the flatbreads are best if you cook them in the oven for 20 minutes.

Shipping & Delivery

Daily Harvest delivers to 95% of the continental United States, but you can check your zip code on the website to verify.

Once you’ve selected your items, you’ll be able to choose whether you want a weekly or monthly shipment. You can also select which delivery day works best for you.

Everything is packaged in order to stay frozen for up to two days, so you don’t need to worry about being home when your delivery arrives, but it’s important to get it in the freezer as soon as you can.

My delivery was smooth and reliable – the meals were neatly packaged with plenty of insulation and all the items were still cold when I unboxed them.

If you need to change your delivery schedule, add more items, or skip a delivery, the website makes this really easy to do. 

Subscription

How to Sign Up

Signing up for Daily Harvest is simple. You just need to input your address and payment information one time and set up a login to use in the future. It takes just a minute.

Daily Harvest delivers weekly or monthly. Once you sign up, you can choose what you want in your shipment. You could choose the bestsellers box, which includes all the highest-rated items from each category, or you can pick your own.

Each box can have a mix of smoothies, bowls, soups, lattes, snacks, and more. You can choose between nine, 14, or 24 different items and it’s easy to update that with each order.

Managing Your Subscription

Skipping orders and canceling your subscription can be done in your account settings when you log in. The option to “pause” will suspend any future deliveries until you want to resume. You can also choose to skip certain deliveries if you’re traveling, for example.

Changes to your order can be made up until 6 pm EST on the Sunday before your box ships.

Cancellations

It’s simple to cancel your Daily Harvest account, too. If skipping or pausing doesn’t take care of your needs, you can cancel. You’ll just need to start a new account if you want future deliveries.

Customer Service

I found the customer support for Daily Harvest to be helpful and easy to reach. The user-friendly website allows you to make any changes to your account or order, and most questions can be answered using the FAQ section.

If you want to speak to someone, you can chat, text, call, or email seven days a week, 12 hours a day. Its options are similar to other top meal delivery services, including Sunbasket.

Prices

Starting from

Minimum Order

Free

For Daily Harvest’s smoothies, soups, and bites, expect to pay around $7.99 per serving, while the bowls, flatbreads and scoops are $8.99 per serving. 

There are plenty of discounts to be had, depending on your order. For example, a large box of 24 items comes with a $20 discount, so the price works out to be $7.16 per meal.

The smaller boxes offer discounts as well. If you have the freezer space, you could take advantage of the discounts and order more at one time.

The Bottom Line: Is Daily Harvest Worth It? 

Daily Harvest certainly makes healthy eating quick and easy, and the convenience of being able to grab a cup out of the freezer and know it’s chock-full of nutrient-dense fruits and veggies is worth the higher price point for many.

With options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack times, it’s super versatile, too.
