Liberte Greek Yogurt Review


I don't know why it took so long for Greek yogurt to hit the North American market. Not only do I find the taste superior to regular yogurt, nutrtionally, this stuff is pretty awesome (that is if you purchase the 0% fat kind.) I purchased a 500 g tub of fat free Greek yogurt at my local Sobey's keeping my fingers and toes crossed that it would live up to the beloved Chobani as discussed in this post here. Chobani, Oikos, and Fage are three Greek yogurt brands that are ubiquitous in the U.S. but are not widely available in Canada. But thankfully and not all too soon, Liberte Yogurt has finally come out with yogurt of the Greek variety. You should have seen my eyes light up when I spotted this at the grocery store.

Did it live up?


Yep. It did. Thick, creamy and without that tang of regular fat free plain yogurt.

But let's talk more about why this stuff rocks. Protein, protein, protein. Each 175 g serving (about 3/4 cup) has 20 g of protein whereas Yoplait's Source Plain yogurt only has 8 g of protein, making this stuff the perfect post-workout snack. Add some chopped fruit, granola or a crumbled protein muffin into it. Or do like I do and add all three.

I'm a total yogurt-head. I don't think there's such thing as bad yogurt (unless it's full of sugar and fat) but I might make the permanent switch to Greek yogurt. I'm finding my usual low-fat yogurts a tad too liquidy and runny these days.

The only thing better than eating Greek yogurt.... would be eating Greek yogurt in GREECE. Santorini perhaps?

Sigh, maybe one day.

Anyways, this stuff is for sure a staple in my fridge moving forward.

Hey Appplecheeks,

I live for this stuff too! Hard to find it in Vancouver (no Sobey's here - IGA, Safeway and independent grocers are carrying it, though).

Thanks for putting it out there! I'll keep an eye out for this Chobani yogurt, too!
