Spring has sprung my friends, which means that we are that much closer to bathing suit season! Uh oh, that means that I really need to tighten my belt on my nutrition…literally!! I am also now in full wedding planning mode and really want to drop a few pounds to look great in my wedding dress and for the pictures 🙂 Time to get back to my green smoothies for breakfast. Its a great way to start the day on the right foot. Filling and full of fiber, they keep you satisfied for a long time. Now I have also found my new secret weapon to an amazing green smoothie, Liberté Mediterranée Yogurt!
Liberté Mediterranée Yogurt is good stuff, y’all!!
I was looking at the yogurt selection at Publix and noticed that there was a new brand of yogurt that I hadn’t heard of, Liberté, so I decided that I would learn more about it. What I learned was that they select only the best whole milk and cream, live, active cultures and bold real fruit. They don’t add any gelatin, sugar substitutes or preservatives! Yay!!
You can’t beat the price either!! The everyday low price at Publix is 10 for $10 and I found a coupon to save even more!! I picked up 10 of them so I could try all the flavors!! They have helped me to help you try all the flavors too with a $15 PayPal Giveaway that you will find at the end of this post, so read on…
New Méditerranée Cappuccino
Flavors of bold espresso and sweet cream mingle in yogurt harmony.
New Méditerranée Caramel
A sensorial delight, with pure melted caramel tamed by rich milk.
Sweet, aromatic blackberries harmonize with velvety yogurt
Milk and cream deepened with the earthy, nutty flavor of coconut.
Méditerranée French Vanilla
The exotic, heady perfume of our vanilla is anything but “vanilla.”
Whole milk yogurt enlivened with the sharpness of lemon. Bracing but silky.
A twist on a classic. We used exceptional fruits for this winsome, summery flavor.
My favorite so far is this Very Berry Green Smoothie with Liberté Mediterranée Blackberry!! Berries are coming in season right now and they are so fresh and sweet!!
This green smoothie tastes like a treat, I promise, and it is that’s to this surprisingly luscious whole milk yogurt! All you need is Liberté Mediterranée Blackberry yogurt, blueberries, raspberrries (or any berries you like), greens, ice and water!!
I do like to use frozen blueberries in my green smoothie. It makes the smoothie colders and you need less ice. Throw all the ingredients in a blender and blend until well combined 🙂 That’s it!!
The mint is optional but I thinks it gives an added layer of flavor! I found this mini mint variety that I have growing in my garden that I am loving!! It has a milder flavor and it’s just too cute…don’t you think?
The bold flavors of the berries and the creaminess of the Liberté Mediterranée Blackberry yogurt completely masks the greens!! I promise that you won’t even taste them but your body will thank you for them 🙂
