I wanted to share with you this awesome combination of creamy ice cream and cinnamon baklava sprinkles made with almonds and walnuts. Naturally, all kinds of nuts you have on hand will do the job, especially pistachios and pecans,  but this mixture is the most authentic and tastes the best.

For a crunchier texture, you can replace minced nuts with finely chopped or even whole ones. That’s up to you. Drizzle with some coconut nectar before serving and enjoy this healthy dessert all year round!
