It's time for Greek yogurt
to stop hogging all the attention. This yogurt from Montreal is our new favorite for breakfast. It's outrageously delicious, and we could eat four or five containers at a time, but we won't, because... Each container of the regular version has 240 calories and 14 grams of fat. Sweet live cultures, that's a lot for six ounces of yogurt.
However. This is genuine, healthy stuff that fills us up, and we're not on the low-fat-is-better bandwagon anyway. Plus, it is so, so good.
We take issue with some of the Greek-style yogurts out there. Often they're simply too thick and pasty—great for using in another recipe (like tzatziki or even popsicles) but a little much by the spoonful.
Liberté is silky, practically fluffy, once you stir it up. We love the kind with the fruit on the bottom (especially the blackberry), which has a texture that's almost like an airy mousse but more fluid. See, it's hard to describe. But where regular yogurt is wet and drippy and Greek yogurt is dense and sticky, this stuff is thick but pillowy and soft.
We couldn't even pause long enough to take a picture of the actual yogurt. Too good!
Who else is a fan of Liberté? We found ours at Whole Foods, but let us know where else it's available.
