If you are craving all things fall then you need to try this! Using super ripe pears make this extra smooth and creamy. Sometimes in the fall I am baking all things apples and making apple butter and apple sauce and pears end up not getting any spotlight. Not anymore! This smoothie will make you like pears all over again.
