Delicious, convenient, low in saturated fat and only 79p for 250ml

While we’re freezing in one of the coldest winters for years, warm yourself up by dreaming about a hot summer and delicious al fresco meals. Imagine sitting out in the garden, the sun beating down on your back and a delicious meal spread out in front of you. To celebrate the new organic status of Oatly Dairy-Free Alternative to Cream, cookery expert Lorna Rhodes has come up with two simple and light recipes: Courgette and Mint Flan and Summer Berry Fool.

While you’re enjoying your feast, you’ll also be doing your body good too:

• Oatly Organic Dairy Free Alternative to Cream contains just 13g of fat per 100g, of which only 3g is saturated fat, and the overwhelming amount is unsaturated 'good' fat.

• Oats are high in soluble fibre and full of slow energy release carbohydrates.

• With only 150kcal per 100g as opposed to 445kcal per 100g for double cream, you can have the taste of cream without piling on the calories.

• Oatly Organic Dairy Free Alternative to Cream and the three Oatly oat drinks (Organic, Enriched and Chocolate) are lactose, milk protein and soya free, so they're great for anyone who has a milk protein allergy, lactose intolerance and/or an allergy to soya.

If you don’t fancy cooking with Oatly Organic Dairy Free Alternative to Cream, why not try pouring it over your breakfast cereal or a bowl of fruit for a delicious change?

Courgette and Mint Flan

A light and fresh tasting dish that makes a great summer meal al fresco - weather permitting!

Serves 4

500g courgettes
1 tsp salt
5 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
2 tsp olive oil
3 large egg yolks
250ml carton Oatly Organic Dairy-Free Alternative to Cream
2 tbsp freshly chopped mint

1. Coarsely grate the courgettes into a colander, sprinkle over the salt and leave to drain for 30 minutes. With your hands, squeeze as much excess water from them as possible placing them on double thickness of kitchen paper to absorb any further excess water.

2. Pre-heat the oven to 170ºC/gas mark 3. Lightly grease the inside of four ramekin dishes with a little of the oil. Heat the remainder in a large non-stick pan, add the spring onions and courgettes and toss together over a high heat for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, place a little of the mixture in the base of each ramekin, just to cover the base.

3. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks with Oatly cream, add the rest of the courgettes and mint and season with a little black pepper and fold together.

4. Spoon into the dishes, place on a baking tray then put into the oven to bake for about 30 minutes.

5. Remove and allow to cool. Refrigerate until needed. Run a knife around the edge of each flan and turn out onto a plate. Serve with a little green salad to garnish.
