Lemon, Blackberry, Date Parfait with Liberté® Méditerranée Yogurt – The Foodie Patootie

Lemon, Blackberry, Date Parfait with Liberté® Méditerranée Yogurt

Today’s post is sponsored by Liberté® Méditerranée, but my love for their luscious yogurt (and my opinions) are all my own. #YogurtPerfection

I’ve never had a love affair with yogurt. (I actually hope there’s nobody out there that has had a literal love affair with yogurt, but I’ve seen My Strange Addiction and I now know what human beings are capable of.)

I wish I could identify why I don’t like yogurt too much. Is it a texture thing? No, I like things like flan and very creamy guacamole and tapioca pudding and pots de creme and melted ice cream. Is it a fruit thing? Even though the fruit on the bottom yogurts are typically my least favorites, it’s not that either. I love fruit! (One of my nicknames as a child was fruit fly.)

I’ll go through these spells of eating yogurt every morning for breakfast – because, you know, I hear it’s good for you – and then, a week later, turning all thoughts of yogurt away in complete disdain. Yogurt?! HOW DARE YOU! I won’t even speak of such a thing.

The pretty cool thing is that I’ve experienced so much food that I’ve never tried before because I was afraid I wouldn’t like it, which is silly because I end up liking it immensely, but I’ve never been totally wishy washy and bipolar about anything and then found something that makes me so manic about the food that I am such a raging fan I don’t even recognize myself. Scraping every last bit of yogurt from the container? That’s not me! Except it was me yesterday in my kitchen. Like a savage. (I stopped at the point of licking the inside of the yogurt container like a dog, but that’s just because I have some shred of self dignity.)

You wanna know the answer? Well, DO YOU?!

It’s Liberté® Méditerranée!

And I made this parfait for you. I used the lemon flavor as the base (my favorite!) and the blackberry flavor at the top. In between, there’s chopped dates and a drizzle of honey. On the top, there’s another drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of chia seeds. I used to say I wish I loved yogurt so I would be happy to eat parfaits every morning for breakfast. Now, I can, seriously.

Liberté is made with whole milk and cream so it’s silky. Each fruit flavor comes with real fruit on the bottom and no gelatin, sugar substitutes, or preservatives. They also have caramel and cappuccino flavors that I can’t wait to try.

Now for the even BETTER news! We all know that yogurt is pretty inexpensive to begin with ($10 for 10, or $10 for 20, what what!), but there are coupons available for Liberté yogurt, too! Get the yogurt coupons. It’s #YogurtPerfection!

Second, I’m giving away $15 in PayPal funds. That’s at least 15 yogurts you can buy! All you have to do is visit the Liberté yogurt website and comment at the bottom of this post with what flavor sounds the best to you.

    I’ve never seen this yogurt at the store, but it looks really yummy. I’m a big fan of lemon yogurt and the parfait you created looks amazing. I am going to have to look for this the next time I head to the store. Thanks for sharing!

    I”m so terrible about stacking my parfaits, yours look great though!! Love the different flavors here!

    • Jennifer — April 21st, 2015 @ 9:22 am

      Haha, thanks, Sam! I don’t think this is the best stacked parfait ever (how do people do that??) but it’s certainly better than my norm. I give thanks to the dates because they allow a really big space.

    I sooooo want to try these because this post has convinced me to go out and try Liberte. The blueberry and coconut seem most appealing to me.

    • Jennifer — April 21st, 2015 @ 9:21 am

      Mmm I really want to try coconut. I hope you love this brand as much as I do!

  7. Shonda — April 20, 2015 at 1:44 pm

    This is a brand of yogurt I have yet to try. The blueberry sounds interesting to try.

    • Jennifer — April 21st, 2015 @ 9:21 am

      I hope you try it. It’s so yummy!

  8. Crystal — April 20, 2015 at 2:03 pm

    I am still searching for a yogurt that I like! I will have to try this!

    • Jennifer — April 21st, 2015 @ 9:20 am

      The great thing about yogurt is you can try all kinds of brands and spend only a couple of dollars, haha. This brand is the best!

  9. Looks great! I will have to try this brand!!

    • Jennifer — April 21st, 2015 @ 9:20 am

      Definitely!

  10. Lisa B. — April 20, 2015 at 4:02 pm

    This looks really good. I am always looking for something new to give the kids as a snack or sweet treat.

    • Jennifer — April 21st, 2015 @ 9:19 am

      And this’ll be a great snack/treat!

  11. Kat | curlsnchard.com — April 20, 2015 at 4:34 pm

    I love lemon yogurt (though I usually go for soy, coconut or goat milk) – best mixed in with fresh strawberries! So so good 🙂

    • Jennifer — April 21st, 2015 @ 9:19 am

      Before this, I had never tried lemon yogurt. When I bought my stash, I only got one lemon because I was thinking I wouldn’t like it at all, but now I wish I had bought more!

  12. Rachel — April 21, 2015 at 8:25 am

    Sounds yummy! We love yogurt around here and it’s cool to hear about a new brand I haven’t tried yet! I think I’ll try the blackberry flavor first.

    • Jennifer — April 21st, 2015 @ 9:18 am

      Definitely had this parfait for breakfast today too!

  13. MommaDJane — April 21, 2015 at 11:42 am

    This looks delicious. I’ve actually never tried blackberry yogurt before. I always stick to strawberry. I need to branch out.

  14. Chrystal @ YUM eating — April 21, 2015 at 1:38 pm

    I’ve been making yogurt partfaits for years. When I need a break from smoothies these are the first things I head towards. The Méditerranée Cappuccino is the first one I want to try. Super duper creamy coffee? Yes, please!

    • Jennifer — April 27th, 2015 @ 8:03 am

      Right?! I want to try the cappuccino too!

  15. Shelly — April 22, 2015 at 8:20 am

    I am not a huge fan of yogurt either, but this sounds really delicious. I pretty much love anything lemon. Lemon and blackberry are the perfect combo and anything drizzled in honey is a friend of mine!

    • Jennifer — April 27th, 2015 @ 7:59 am

      Hi, Shelly! I’m sure you’ll love this then. 🙂

  16. Chenoa — April 22, 2015 at 9:57 am

    This looks delicious and the lemon and blackberry is probably an amazing combo. Can’t wait to try it out!

  17. David Miller — April 22, 2015 at 3:39 pm

    Wow, this looks amazing! I love this so will have to try this. Thank you so much for sharing. The recipe is lovely.

    • Jennifer — April 27th, 2015 @ 7:59 am

      Thanks, David!

  18. Ashley — April 23, 2015 at 4:29 pm

    I definitely go on yogurt kicks … and then there are times when I don’t eat it at all! Love the sound of this with the dates and chia seeds!

    • Jennifer — April 27th, 2015 @ 7:58 am

      The dates did make a big difference. Love dates!

    I am so grieving in Savannah Georgia. I used to buy my Liberte Lemon from my local Publix store. Every time I would go there I would get them to get me a carton. 12 containers in a carton plus pick up some extras off the shelf. And my wife likes the BlackBerry, vanilla, coconut but me strictly lemon. Well they told me yesterday they were no longer carrying it. I was horrified because every night I would eat at least 1 or 2 about 11 pm. And on the weekends 4 or 5 so now what do I do? Anyone in Savannah Georgia know where it’s available? Please E Mail me as I am unable to replace firsthand other. Thanks, Mike
