Daily Harvest has been on my mind for a long while. If it has been on yours too, I have a promo code for you below so you can try it out! Keep reading.
When I first ran across Daily Harvest, It honestly seemed like something right up my alley. I love easy meals with fresh ingredients, and I loved their variety.
Something else that caught my eye was the ingredients in the Daily Harvest smoothies. There were a lot of things that I couldn’t find fresh myself, which was a huge bonus to me.
The other thing is that their smoothies are affordable. I love replacing my breakfast with these as a grab and go option. I just throw it in my blender, add the liquid of my choice, and blend away. Sometimes I like a little cream and collagen peptides in my smoothie, or I’ll add fiber in case I didn’t get enough that day.
I thought I would start off by reviewing the Dragon Fruit + Lychee smoothie for you guys! You can look forward to a review on each one I try!

WHAT’S IN THIS DAILY HARVEST SMOOTHIE?

Organic Dragon Fruit
Dragon fruit is mild in flavor, but brings high levels of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants in the form of a pigment called indicaxanthin. Because if it’s high fiber content, it’s filling quite filling, and has a great taste that pairs with the other sweet and tart ingredients.

Flax seeds are a rich source of micronutrients, dietary fiber, manganese, vitamin B1, and omega-3 fatty acids, which lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar.
