Packed along with my sundae ingredient cups was an envelope with freezer instructions and a sheet of fridge magnets.

Love these magnets! They are the same as I received last year when I tried the Daily Harvest Smoothies.

The box also included instructions on how to make the sundaes. You’ll need a milk of your choice (I went with unsweetened coconut milk) and a blender. I used a Vitamix to blend my sundaes but a bullet blender should work well.

Daily Harvest also included a set of simple wooden spoons that make every day a sundae dae :D.

On to the sundaes:

Here is the sundae all blended up.

Chocolate Brownie Batter

This was my first blend and it was a toughy. The frozen coconut and zucchini at the bottom were tough for my Vitamix to get through. I used the tamper A LOT to get this guy blended. I couldn’t get it perfectly smooth, so some coconut pieces remained intact and added texture to this frozen dessert. If you’re a fan of coconut, that’s no problem – but if you don’t like to chew your soft serve, you might not be a fan. The black bean brownie topping on this was absolutely delicious, like eating a very soft brownie or brownie batter. On its own, the dessert has a light sweetness and light chocolate flavor. With all the healthful ingredients in here, I only tasted chocolate and coconut.

A serving of this sundae (half of the tub) has 180 calories and 12 grams of sugar, not including your choice of milk.

Here is the chocolate brownie batter blended up with the brownie topping. This is so filling! Each tub contains 2 servings.

Here’s the full list of ingredients and nutrition facts for the Chocolate Brownie Batter flavor:

Ingredients
organic coconut meat, organic zucchini squash, organic dates, organic cacao powder, organic coconut milk (organic coconut, water), organic black beans, organic coconut, avocado (avocado, citric acid, ascorbic acid [vitamin c]), organic coconut oil, organic hemp protein powder, organic cacao butter, organic pea protein, himalayan sea salt, organic vanilla powder

Chocolate Hazelnut

Yum! This was chocolatey and hazelnutty with a hint of banana. The topping was perfect. The cacao nibs added a perfect crunch along with the nutty taste of the hazelnuts. Unlike the chocolate brownie batter, this one blended very easily. The avocado and banana probably helped this one blend up smoothly and made this sundae so nice and creamy.

A serving of this sundae (half of the tub) has 170 calories and 12 grams of sugar, not including your choice of milk.

Straight from the blender and into the dish, the sundaes are a soft texture and start to melt quickly.

Here’s the full list of ingredients and nutrition facts for the Chocolate Hazelnut flavor:

Ingredients
organic bananas, dry roasted hazelnuts, organic dates, organic cacao nibs, organic coconut milk (organic coconut, water), organic cacao powder, avocado (avocado, citric acid, ascorbic acid [vitamic c]), organic coconut, organic coconut oil, organic pea protein, himalayan pink sea salt, organic vanilla powder

Cacao Cookie Dough

As soon as I blended this up I could smell cauliflower. This is the first one where I could taste the cauliflower base. It has little vanilla specs throughout and looks very nice blended up. The chickpea cookie dough is probably my favorite part. Overall, the cauliflower flavor was too strong in this one. I like cauliflower in all the ways – be it raw, steamed, roasted but apparently not as a frozen dessert.

A serving of this sundae (half of the tub) has 120 calories and 10 grams of sugar, not including your choice of milk.

I’d eat a whole batch of that chickpea cookie dough topping!

Here’s the full list of ingredients and nutrition facts for the Cacao Cookie Dough flavor:

Ingredients
organic cauliflower, organic coconut meat, organic dates, organic coconut milk (organic coconut, water), organic garbanzo beans, organic coconut, organic raw almond butter, organic almonds, himalayan pink sea salt, water, organic cacao nibs, organic vanilla powder, organic pine pollen

Salted Caramel

This one blended up beautifully, looking like a true soft serve in the blender. I had to do minimal work to get this to blend up and it looked great. The frozen dessert itself is a soft orange color from the sweet potato and is the perfect consistency. It is sweet and tastes of banana and sweet potato, which I like. The saltiness comes in with the topping of chia seeds, coconut, and pumpkin seeds. It tastes healthy but honestly really good. This is an instant favorite and with ingredients, I can feel good about, I’d seek this out in the store rather than grabbing my favorite vegan Ben & Jerry’s. I’m so glad I got 2 tubs of this flavor!

A serving of this sundae (half of the tub) has 160 calories and 14 grams of sugar, not including your choice of milk.

So tasty!

Here’s the full list of ingredients and nutrition facts for the Salted Caramel flavor:

Ingredients
organic sweet potato, organic banana, organic dates, organic coconut milk (organic coconut, water), organic pumpkin seeds, organic chia, organic coconut, himalayan pink sea salt, organic coconut oil, pure maple syrup, organic vanilla powder, ground cinnamon

Strawberry Cheesecake

I tend to go for fruity flavors over chocolate so I was really looking forward to this strawberry cheesecake flavor. This had a nice creamy strawberry flavor and I didn’t notice the cauliflower flavor like I did in the cacao cookie dough sundae. The probiotic crumble topping added extra sweetness and gave the perfect hint at a traditional cheesecake crust.

A serving of this sundae (half of the tub) has 110 calories and 8 grams of sugar, not including your choice of milk.

Because all of these sundaes are so filling and are meant to be 2 servings, I wanted to see how these stood up to storage in the freezer. I would recommend only refreezing these once as more than that will add ice crystals which dilute the flavor.

Here is the strawberry cheesecake plated up after an extra freezing. It was definitely firmer and scoopable but didn’t taste as flavorful as it did fresh out of the blender.

Here’s the full list of ingredients and nutrition facts for the Strawberry Cheesecake flavor:

Ingredients
organic strawberries, caulfilower, organic coconut meat, organic dates, organic raw almond butter, organic almonds, organic coconuts, inulin, bacillus coagulans gbi-30 6086, lemon juice, organic maple syrup, organic apple cider vinegar diluted with water to 5% acidity, himalayan pink sea salt, organic vanilla powder

Nutrition Facts

Verdict: I really enjoyed trying the new sundaes from Daily Harvest! At $7.99 per sundae, these were around the same price as I pay for the more high-end vegan frozen desserts at Whole Foods but certainly more expensive than a pint of regular Ben & Jerry’s. I like that these are made of fruits and vegetables rather than just a nut-milk base with flavors added in. Some blended up better than others in my blender and some definitely hid their vegetable components more skillfully than others. The salted caramel sundae was my favorite flavor followed by the chocolate hazelnut. Each sundae was paired with a unique topping that complimented the frozen dessert perfectly – and some were even tastier than the frozen dessert! The best part for me is that these were so much more filling than the typical vegan frozen desserts I reach for, which meant I ate less of them and still felt like I’d had a nice treat.

What do you think of the Daily Harvest sundaes?

  1. I can’t I could afford this sub I’d be all over it. I make my own smoothies but these are so easy and prepped and look yummy.

    Thx 4 reviewing

  2. Is this single serving? If so i think that is insanely expensive.

    • Hi Jenny,

      Each container is listed as 2 servings with 1/2 package listed as 97 g/3.4 oz. I found them very filling, though I was treating them as a dessert and not a meal. For me, these are probably 2-3 servings, so it’s not one of those chip bag situations where you’re the whole way through and turn the bag to find out oops that was 4 servings.

  3. I wish this company would address all of their customer service issues. I’ve been wanting to try them for a while now but everyone’s feedback has scared me off!

  4. Could you give information on things like protein count well? I’m wondering how the rest off the nutritional info stacks out. Thanks!

    • Hi Jen,

      Sure! I just added the full list of ingredients and nutrition facts to each item. Hope that helps!

  5. I looked into these a bit back, but due to my coconut & banana allergy, I can’t try them. Sounds wonderful though! Thanks for the review, I’ve been curious about them since they came out!

    • Bummer, yeah they are pretty full of coconut and banana for that nondairy creaminess. Glad you like the review though!

  6. You are very brave for trying these! Thanks for listing out which ones were your favorites and which ones weren’t. Will have to check out the good ones!
