If you’re a Bella NYC reader, chances are you are pretty badass (you are!) and that you’re pretty busy as well. When it comes to breakfast, we busy ladies don’t have time to be spending 5 hours recipe hunting, chopping, cooking… Uff I’m tired just by the thought of it!
That’s exactly why I’ve been obsessing over Daily Harvest an amazing company that ships you frozen, ready-to-blend ingredients for Super-Food Smoothies, Soups, Activated Oats & Chia Parfaits. The organic, non-GMO fruits, veggies, and superfoods—like kale, cashew butter, and matcha—are organized by nutritionists and chefs into 14 different yummy blends.
Basically, all you have to do is open, add milk, water or coconut water, blend and voila… None of the prep, all of the victory! I know for sure easy-yummy-quick recipes are the way to go because that’s what most of my health coaching clients and social media followers, ask me to post. It’s exactly this type of food that get the most love on my Instagram feed.
And they’re surely into something since both Gwyneth Paltrow, and Serena Williams, just announced they have invested in the company. SO you know what that means, right?! PLUS, one of the things I love the most as well is that it is a female led business. Girl power!
Daily Harvest founder Rachel Drori explains: “Often times, the produce you buy at the local grocery store was picked before its reached its nutritional peak. Farm frozen foods are harvested at peak maturity when nutrient content is highest. The freezing process effectively locks in the beneficial vitamins and nutrients so there is a higher concentration upon consumption.”

They just recently added more amazingness to their repertoire, by including Activated Bowls that include overnight oats and chia parfaits (they have soups too!).
My favorite of all the options is this one in the pic, Mango + Golden Milk… OMG!
It’s a blend of organic mango and pineapple, ginger and turmeric, whose anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects make it one of the most powerful spices at combatting disease, lowering cholesterol and regulating blood pressure. The mix also has some hemp seed, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves, and pepper… they really outdid themselves with this one.
And if you’re wondering about the nutrients because it’s frozen, don’t! I can assure you that frozen fruits and veggies retain their same nutritional value and thus you will be getting all the nutrition you want and deserve.
Are you ready to start blending, and breakfast under 3 minutes?
… I am!
