Review: Liberté Strained Greek Style Yogurt Blueberry Harvest
As an all round yogurt fan, I've tried out a few different brands of the newly popular super thick strained yogurts, such as Fruyo (review here) and Danio (review here). Even though I enjoyed the super thick texture of these types of yogurts, I don't buy them too often as I find that the individual servings a bit too large (170g in the Fruyo pots) for me. I've been meaning to try these Liberté Strained yogurts, because the pots are much smaller (100g), which I prefer. The Liberté brand has a long heritage in Canada where it began, and has finally been launched in the UK this year.
There are several flavours available; Strawberry, Blueberry Harvest, Lemon Bliss, Golden Honey, as well as a plain variety. I decided to go for the Blueberry Harvest. Each pot has 85 calories, is naturally rich in protein and is free from artificial sweeteners and preservatives.
I had seen in other reviews of the Liberté range that the yogurt is often separated (with a watery layer on top), however I didn't encounter that problem with any of mine. The yogurt was thick, creamy and extremely satisfying, just like the other strained yogurts I've tried. I found that the blueberry compote layer at the bottom had plenty of juicy blueberries, but was quite runny, almost liquid in consistency. Despite that, I still enjoyed this fruity layer, as I found it lighter and less sugary than the compotes in other yogurt brands. and it worked well with the thick texture of the yogurt itself.
