I recently had the pleasure of tasting a wide variety of the Liberte Yogourts and my clients and I enjoyed sampling the tasty flavors and incredible variety that Liberte offers.  They have an extensive line of products including Mediterranee, Six Grains, Goat Products and Plain Yogurt.  Here are a few recipes that I created in my kitchen…I hope you enjoy them as much as my clients and I did.
