Koia debuts new line of dessert-inspired vegan and keto beverages

Plant-based protein shake company Koia has debuted a line of vegan-friendly drinks tailored to those on ketogenic diets which, perhaps most importantly, are made to taste like dessert.

The beverages come in three flavors — Cake Batter, Chocolate Brownie, and Caramel Crème — and contain 0.42 oz (12 grams) of protein per bottle, providing you with the perfect excuse to try all three consecutively. Granted, we’re not explicitly telling you to do this, but what happens in your kitchen can stay between you and your cat. Or partner. That’s also none of our business.

In addition to the plant-based protein, Koia’s Keto range contains no added sugar and 0.5 oz (14 grams) of MCT oil per serving, landing its fat content at 74% which, while high, is in alignment with the trendy high-fat ‘keto’ or ketogenic diet.

While the healthfulness of ketogenic diets is highly disputed online, words like “gooey fudge brownie”, “creamy scorched caramel” and “rich coconut cream” used to describe the products may just persuade you to bench your health concerns in the short-term and give them a try.

Should you choose to do so, you can find Koia’s products at US-based grocery chain Whole Foods Market, and on the company website.
