Have you ever tried hunting for a protein powder that tastes great, blends well, and doesn’t contain a long list of artificial flavours and sweeteners? It’s a tricky task for sure, with most protein powders containing sugar disguised with terms like maltodextrin, sucralose, corn syrup, or evaporated cane juice. Healthier protein powders often opt for stevia, a non-caloric sweetener derived from leaves of the stevia plant. While stevia is a great alternative to sugar, many people don’t love the ultra-sweet taste and some even get a bitter metallic taste from the sweetener.

Here’s where Niyama Yoga Wellness’s newest release comes in: The Chocolate Organic Plant Protein contains plant-based vitamins, fiber, and 20g of organic pea protein in every scoop, with zero sugars and only 1g of carbs. Unlike most plant proteins, Niyama’s Organic Plant Protein has an extremely fine texture that blends seamlessly into smoothies and is so tasty it can even be mixed with just water. The best part? It’s sweetened naturally, with only one superfood ingredient: monk fruit extract.


What Is Monk Fruit?
Also known as Luo Han Guo, monk fruit originates in Southeast Asia, where Buddhist monks cultivated the fruit nearly 800 years ago. Used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine, monk fruit has many health benefits aside from adding a dash of sweetness to any meal.
