Today, I was wandering through the grocery store looking for a lunch to bring to work. I was on my way to grab some steam-able cauliflower to satisfy my craving when I stumbled across a sample stand. Normally, these are the bane of any diet, but this stand delivered unto me the messiah of yogurt. Its name is Liberté, and it is divine.
I love me some yogurt, but I really can't stand how all American food companies -- here's looking at you, Yoplait -- pump even the "low fat" yogurts full of high-fructose corn syrup and other corn derivatives. Yogurt is a dairy product. Corn has no business being involved unless the cows that gave the milk and cream happened to have eaten it. Luckily, this yogurt is a product of Canada, and its ingredient list reads thus:
Liberté Mediterranée Coconut
INGREDIENTS: Milk and Skimmed Milk, Cream, Fruit Preparation (Sugar, Coconut, Water, Native Rice Starch, Natural Flavor, Pectin, Citric Acid) Bacterial Culture (S. Thermophilus, L Acidophilus, Bifidus, L. Bulgaricus), Sugar, Milk Protein concentrate
It is thick, it is rich, and it is amazing. It has only 270 calories! It's like Greek yogurt with a hint of sweetness that comes from actual sugar! Gosh!
Furthermore, the plain yogurt cuts out the fruit prep and then you have only 5 ingredients. This, my friends, is a fud. I am going to buy a crapton of Liberté yogurt. If that makes me a socialist, so be it, because socialism is delicious.
