I was gifted a weeks worth of Daily Harvest Smoothies a couple months ago, and I LOVED THEM! I especially loved the Mint + Cacao Smoothie! What could be better than a mint chocolate smoothie in the morning?
I loved that the smoothies were so convenient and great for a meal prep option. Having a quick breakfast option or a healthy on-the-go lunch option was a win in my book.
I started ordering the shakes, but soon realized that I didn’t love the oh-so-expensive price tag every week. I quickly asked myself, “Is Daily Harvest worth it? Is it worth the hefty price tag for the amazing convenience of it all?” The answer for me was NO! I knew there was a better way, and I wanted to test if I could recreate these cups, and do it affordably. So I came up with a recipe to make your own Daily Harvest Smoothie at a fraction of the price.
That’s where this easy, smoothie prep idea came to mind. I recipe tested several different quantities of ingredients for this copycat Daily Harvest Smoothie recipe, and I think I nailed it friends!
The amazing part is these “make your own” cups cost so much less! Here is the price breakdown.
