Review of The Originial Organic Creamy Oat Cream

Well with Wimbledon due to start it can only mean one thing, yep you’ve guessed it strawberries and cream. I thought I would use this as an excuse to try out some dairy / lactose free creams. So I thought I would give this cream by Oatly a try first. I have heard good things about it on social media sites, so was really looking forward to giving it a try. It comes in a 250ml brown carton which I loved. On the top it says wow no cow with the front having a picture of 2 cascading strawberries. A 100g serving contains 145 calories, 13g of fat, 3.5g of sugar and 0.1g of salt.
Although it is a UHT cream I placed it the fridge so that I could try it chilled. I poured it into a small bowl in which I was going to add berries and meringue to have an eton mess style treat. As it’s a low calorie treat a small serving with strawberries makes it a perfect sweet treat on my fasting day. When pouring the cream it was slightly runny and had a consistency like a single cream. It was cream in colour and lacked any real aroma. On placing a little cream on a spoon it was runny but not thin or watery. I felt that it tasted a little like a soya cream I have had previously with a subtle nuttiness to it. I personally thought this was strange as it was oat based cream. I thought it may have a hint oats and taste a little like flapjacks which I know sounds a little silly. That aside I really enjoyed this cream. It had the look and consistency of single cream. It’s pretty neutral taste with a hint if nuttiness was spot on. It worked well as part of the Eton mess. The meringues and fruit absorbed the cream and this changed their flavour slightly in a nice way. I have also read on social media sites that it makes a great element to both sweet and savoury dishes when cooked from scratch.
It was a nice sweet treat and I really enjoyed all the elements to this cream from its packaging, consistency and taste. I am looking forward to use it when cooking both sweet and savoury dishes. So if you follow a dairy, lactose, soya free diet, then give this cream a try I am sure you will enjoy, especially with strawberries. So thank you Oatly for producing a nice enjoyable alternative single cream.
