A drink that is high in protein and tastes delicious? Koia is packed with 18g of plant-based protein from brown rice, peas, and chickpeas and clocks in at only 4 grams of sugar.

DONA Masala Chai is steeped with ginger, cinnamon, green cardamom, cloves, and black peppercorn. They use organic loose leaf tea and a touch of sugar so all you need to do is add in an equal part of your favorite dairy-free milk. We like to drink DONA Masala Chai iced with Oatly.
