Meal delivery services don't always include an option for those who eat a vegan or a dairy-free diet – but these are a few of the best ones we've tried who do!
Sakara Life – Sakara is a great full-service meal delivery that is both plant-based and gluten-free. Do note that occasionally they will use honey or bee pollen, but if you are on the subscription meal plan you can always trade out those meals. They have snacks that you can get in their marketplace to supplement the meal plans (my favorite are the detox bars) and the meals come fully prepared with 3 meals a day. It is one of the more luxury options, so you you can save 20% with the code XOTRIALANDEATER, or read our Sakara Life full review here. You'll like this option if you want all your food ready to eat and you have a little bit more budget to spend.
Purple Carrot is a plant-based meal kit (with gluten-free option), and they send you ingredients to cook the recipes yourself. You'll like this one if you enjoy the cooking process and just don't want to think about what to cook (or do the shopping!). Menus change weekly – click the “menus” option in the menu bar to see what they're currently offering before going to “pricing” and then “sign up.” Get $30 off your first box with this link and code “carrot30” at checkout (that's more than the discount they'll send you in an email when you register!).

Hungry Root – This one has a bit of a different concept. You fill out a questionnaire based on how many people you're cooking for, dietary preferences, etc. and they send you prepared groceries and simple recipes based on the number of meals you want. It's mostly heating or putting together your food so prep time is minimal, but you still get a little bit of the experience of “cooking”. They have a ton of recipes here – you'll have to make sure you're choosing vegan ones. Full HungryRoot review here.
Mosaic Foods – this is our favorite pick for a frozen, vegetarian only meal service (with a vegan option). They just expanded to my area (check your zip code!) so my full review is coming soon, but if they deliver in your city I highly recommend them. See the full review here.
Daily Harvest – You might know them for their smoothie cups, but they now have great meal choices. Harvest bowls, soups, dessert bites, flatbreads and more – all options are vegan and gluten-free and made with delicious organic fruits and vegetables with zero preservatives or additives. Save $25 off your first box with code “trialandeater” on their website– choose your own meals or get their customer favorites box. These come frozen and will need to be warmed up, and in some cases blended (like the soups and smoothies). You'll like this if you want a range of lighter-fare options to keep in the freezer. (See full Daily Harvest review here)
Splendid Spoon – these are fully-prepared soups, smoothies and grain bowls. Smoothies are ready to eat, and you'll just need to reheat the soups or bowls, so it's minimal prep time. They also have new noodle bowls! All options are also gluten-free. (See full Splendid Spoon review here with latest coupons..)
Veestro – these are plant-based meals that come frozen. You'll like this one if you want freezer options to keep on-hand for rushed or backup weeknight meals. Gluten-free options available. (See full Veestro review (with latest coupons) here.)
Sun Basket – Sun Basket offers a vegetarian plan, but there are at least a couple options that are dairy-free to choose from each week within that category! You'll like this one if you are looking for organic ingredients, still want to cook your meal, and are okay with having fewer options week to week. (See full Sun Basket review here.)
BONUS Recommendations for other vegan deliveries:
Dry Farm Wines – did you know a lot of wine isn't even vegan? Dry Farm sources not only all natural, no additives (and no sugar!) wines but they are now certified vegan as well. Get a bonus bottle with your first subscription or see full review here for more details.
Thrive Market – this is a great staple for pantry items. You are able to sort by dietary needs so it is easy to find vegan favorites, and and there are a ton options for snacks. (See full review here.)
