Liberte Lactose-Free Greek Yogourt ~ #Review & #Giveaway

My family has always been a big fan of yogurt.  We could easily polish off a tub of yogurt in a day or two.  My daughter will often get excited to have yogurt for a snack.  The same excitement if we were offered a piece of devil's food cake or strawberry cheese cake.  It has been recently I have been purchasing Greek yogurt.  I have found it to be creamier and more filing than the regular ones I purchase.  We are fortunate that we are not lactose intolerant.  For those that you are, check out Liberte Lactose-free Greek yogurt.  Before, you maybe limited or unable to eat yogurt.  Now you can go crazy.  Imagine you can now use this yogurt to make yummy tzatziki sauces or other goodies that is now lactose-free.

Liberte Lactose-Free Greek Yogourt


I am a big fan of Liberte Yogurts, especially because they provide coconut flavoured yogurt.  Liberte carries a large range of great products and I can't wait to see what they will come up with next.  I usually eat my yogurt with either cereal or granola mixed in.  But this time I was thinking of trying one of Liberte's recipes.  I love to bake and it has been awhile since I never have time.  I usually bake only a handful of recipes because I know what I am doing and I know the kids will eat them.  Usually when I read a recipes there is always something I don't have.  I only keep the basic in stock like flour, sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract.  Anything else, it gets tricky that I may or may not have it.

I am going to try to make Liberte's Lemon Muffin Yogurt, by Nicole Horne and see if my baking skills are as good as they used to be.  I did some improvising by using Liberte Lactose-Free Greek Yogurt and mini loaf pan different from the receipe.  The recipe was easy to follow and I was done in a jiffy.

The end result is that my Lemon bread turned out fantastic.  I made 3 mini Lemon bread and I polished one off myself.  It is that good.  I am so glad to have found this recipe.  If I could use this in my bread, I bet I could also use it to make a cake.  I know one little boy who is lactose intolerant who would love this yogurt and also love lactose-free deserts.

Yes, the yogurt itself tastes really good with a texture like sour cream.  I also make tzatziki where I just add in a mixture and stir.  It even taste great as a chip dip.  I am so glad I was able to try Liberte newest Lactose-Free Greek Yogurt.

What’s a lactose free Greek yogurt?

Crafted using traditional Greek methods, the yogurt is strained according to the principles of old-time cheesecloth draining, which gives it an incredibly rich and creamy texture and one that’s absolutely free of fat. No fat at all!

Requiring three times more milk than a regular yogurt, our lactose free Greek yogurt also contains twice the protein of any other regular yogurt. It’s an excellent source of energy and the perfect choice for a low-fat diet.

Lactose intolerance, afflicting nearly 20% of the Canadian population* is the inability to digest lactose, which is the predominant sugar naturally found in milk. Composed of two sugars, galactose and glucose, they must be separated to be digested. This is accomplished with the addition of an enzyme called lactase. Lactose intolerants do not produce enough lactase to be able to convert the lactose in milk.

Like all Liberté products, our new lactose free Greek yogurt contains no preservatives, no additives, no artificial coloring nor gelatine.
