breakfast for the foreseeable future

I’m a smoothie girl. I have one nearly every morning for breakfast. My Vitamix blender is one of my favorite possessions which says a lot. But I do tend to whip up the same combination nearly every day. So, a little variety in my morning blend sounded like a good idea. Enter Daily Harvest. They do the mixing, chopping and freezing of ingredients for 15 different smoothie combinations. You add the liquid and do the blending. How’s that for easy with a good amount of variety?

Here’s how it works — the last Thursday of every month I receive 24 cups — actual paper cups with plastic lids and a straw hole (my favorite part because I always drink my smoothies with a straw!) filled with a combination of nutritious flash frozen fruits, veggies, nuts and other flavor boosters. You add the milk alternative or other liquid of your choice, dump it in your blender and blend. Pour it back in the cup, cover with lid, pop in a straw and drink.

Ahhh, but that’s not all. They also offer soup cups, chia cups, overnight oat cups and what is my favorite, sundae cups — tasty combinations of healthy-ish ingredients to which you add a small about of almond milk to make an ice cream textured treat that gets topped with crunchy and delicious toppings. They are a bit hard on my blender (yes, even my Vtamix) but pretty ingenious for this ice cream lover. I always include four sundae cups in my smoothie delivery for a weekly Friday night treat.

Let’s talk cost — I started with the 9 cup per week delivery on a promotion. But then switched to the monthly delivery to get the ongoing cost per cup down to $6.99 each. Nearly restaurant prices for sure, especially since you still need to add the liquid on top of this cost. However, for ease and variety I’m good to pay the premium price. I just pick up a jug of unsweetened almond milk with my weekly grocery shop and breakfast is sorted.

This is not a promoted post — just my current breakfast choice. But you can get three free cups with your first order by clicking here.

Enjoy!
