Once a month, we round-up some of our favorite vegetarian foods and kitchen tools and share them with you here on the Marketplace. Here are this month’s picks! (Note that these products were received as samples for review.)
1. Daily Harvest
We love the convenience of meal delivery services and Daily Harvest has taken that same concept and applied it to smoothies. You’ll get frozen ingredients portioned into cups—just add your liquid of choice, dump the contents in your blender, and you have a smoothie with practically no effort on your part.

Do you miss toasting marshmallows over the campfire? Got a hankering for s’mores? Marshmallows are one of those unexpected foods you have to give up when going vegetarian—until now, because Dandies makes gelatin-free marshmallows and they are so good. This isn’t one of those “well, it’s not quite the same, but it will do in a pinch” vegan foods, these have the same texture and taste as the original.

3. WTRMLN WTR
Hello summer! With just two ingredients (watermelon and lemon juice), this is pretty much as close as you can get to bottling the flavor of fresh watermelon. We love that it’s cold-pressed from some of the 800 million pounds of watermelon that’s rejected from grocery stores each year for cosmetic flaws(!)—delicious and cutting down on waste? Count us in.

4. Ezekiel 4:9 Flax English Muffins
Ezekiel bread is a favorite around here and we’re big fans of their new Flax English muffins—because: flax! These English muffins contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, along with 5 grams of protein. (And if you’re an Ezekiel fan, be sure to check out their new Sprouted Grain Waffles too.)

5. Siete Almond Flour Tortillas
These are hands-down the best gluten-free tortillas we’ve tried. Most either crumble when you fold them or they have an off-taste to them. Siete tortillas aren’t crumbly and bonus: they taste good! We used them to make quesadillas and enjoyed how they crisped up in the skillet and their pleasantly nutty flavor.

6. So Delicious Coconutmilk Creamer
With flavors like Hazelnut and French Vanilla, these creamers are the perfect way to add flavor, sweetness, and creaminess to your coffee—without dairy. It’s so tasty we kind of want to drink it straight out of the carton.

7. Orange Dreamsicle Coco-Roons
Dreamsicles are a summertime favorite and now you can get them in raw macaroon form. These are perfect for tucking into work lunches or road trip snacking and they’re organic, non-GMO, and made with all natural ingredients, so they’re a sweet you can feel good about eating.
