  2. Sugar-Free Chocolate Fudge Sauce – A classic for a reason, warm chocolate fudge sauce creates an irresistible contrast with the cool, creamy ice cream.
  3. Crushed Nuts – Pecans, almond, or walnuts would add a delightful crunch and nutty flavor that pairs well with the cinnamon.
  4. Light Whipped Cream – A dollop of whipped cream on top can make your churro ice cream even more decadent.
  5. Mini Churro Bites – For a fun twist, top your churro ice cream with mini churro bites for an extra hit of that churro goodness.
