Roasted Pear Protein Ice Cream

Shelly's Roasted Pear Protein Ice Cream

1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Sugar Free Torani (I used SF Caramel), divided use
1 teaspoon + 1/2 teaspoon Butter Flavored Extract, divided use
2-3 Tablespoons Pecans, toasted & chopped
1 ripe Pear, roasted & chopped

Toast pecans lightly in a toaster oven or dry pan. Toss with 1 teaspoon of SF Syrup and 1/2 teaspoon butter extract set aside to cool. I pop them in the freezer while the ice cream churns.

Peel and core pear. Place in a Pyrex baking dish. Drizzle with 1 Tablespoon of SF Torani syrup. Roast in the oven, uncovered, at 350 for about 30 minutes or until tender and easily pierced with a knife OR microwave for 3-4 minutes. Chop. Allow to cool.

Mix together milk, protein, 1 Tablespoon syrup and 1 teaspoon extract. I used this gadget to mix it up. It makes it airy and lump free. Pour into ice cream maker. Follow your machine's instructions for freezing. 5 minutes before done add the chopped nuts and chopped pear.

You can eat it right away it is soft serve-ish but I like to put it in the freezer (in a tupperware) to set for an hour or so. I topped mine with a drizzle of SF Caramel Sauce (Smucker's)
