What is it: “That full-night’s-sleep energy, post-yoga bliss, feel-good glow now comes in a pre-portioned, superfood-packed cup. Our number one since day one. Ready in 30 seconds and nutritionist-approved.” – Daily Harvest This shake comes in an individual cup with various pre-packed organic fruits, veggies, seeds and nuts for blend-at-home without shopping convenience. Throw one of these portable, frozen cups into a blender with your choice of liquid (almond milk and water work) and you are ready to run out of the door! The company specializes in pre-loaded shakes but also offers a variety of ready-made superfood bowls, soups, oat blends, and chia parfaits. I stuck to their protein shakes to curb hunger and as a meal replacement.
Pros: I loved these shakes! Depending on the flavor you choose, you can get a bit of a crunch, which stood out to me. Delicious! I use this one as more of a meal supplement because it is fruit/veggie based and does not pack as much protein as some of the other shakes on the market. What I love most about this shake is CONVENIENCE! How easy it was to pop the contents into a blender and take it on the go. And his shake has so many rich superfoods, you can count on getting a lot of the nutrients you want in a day.
Cons: Not a typical protein shake. It won’t be one I use as a supplement to aid my running (didn’t seem to speed me up/make me feel lighter) but it definitely makes a great meal replacement. Also, note you cannot purchase one individual cup—you must purchase a minimum of 6 cups at a time on a subscription basis. The shakes are delivered in larger quantities with delivery scheduled weekly or monthly.
