No, that's not a typo. A “nice” cream is a frozen treat that uses bananas or other nondairy ingredients instead of cream. Perfect for vegans, those who can’t digest dairy or anyone who just loves a rich, velvety dessert, this recipe trio will make you rethink what ice cream is all about.
This Asian-inspired recipe uses boneless chicken breasts, but boneless chicken thighs work just as well. If you want to give the dish a spicy spin, add one serrano hot pepper to the mixture before freezing; cook the pepper in the sauce then remove and discard it before serving.
This hearty vegetarian soup is loaded with fiber and plant-based protein. For a bigger nutrient boost, stir in one 10-oz bag of baby spinach, kale or arugula during the last 20 minutes of cooking. Thawed frozen broccoli, cauliflower or winter squash are other good last-minute add-ins.
