Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

From the Test Kitchen

Every week we're bringing you a selection of Add-ons—a mix of our favorite appetizers, sides, and desserts that you can add to your box and fill out your table. To give these delicious cookies their distinct crinkled appearance, you'll roll the dough (made with chocolate chips, orange zest, and crunchy walnuts) into balls, then coat them in powdered sugar before baking, allowing cracks to form as they spread out and rise in the oven.
