This was pretty good but slightly bland. Next time I will add some seasoning to add a little more zest. Texture was great.

I didn't have macadamia's so I used crushed cashew and pistachio .. Tasted very good.

I used walnuts instead and didn't have the coconut milk. But followed everything else and it was delicious!!!
