Peanut butter &banana Agave Smoothies and Pear sauce

Peanut Butter & Banana Agave Smoothie
Don't let the Vodka bottle fool you. I have not fallen into a drunken state. It's homemade vanilla extract. ;-)

1 Ripe banana (I keep bananas in the freezer just for recipes like this)
1 cup yogurt
2 tablespoons Agave Nectar
1/2 cup almond milk
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4-6 ice cubes (if you use a frozen banana you can skip this part
Blend away and serve in your vintage kool-aid cups that you scored at a yard sale.
Okay, so the last part is optional. But aren't those cups just the cutest?

Our pear tree performed wonderfully for us this year, and has left us eating pears every day for weeks. We needed a different way to eat them. We dehydrated some to use for trail mix, but were still left with a whole basket full. So we made pear sauce.:-)

Pear Sauce
Peel and core your pears (or apples)
Place in a pot with a enough water to cover the bottom
dash of cinnamon
squirt of Agave Nectar
Cover and let cook until the fruit is soft
Let cool and then place in blender
Refrigerate and then serve

This was so yummy and a nice change to just plain ole pears. Now to go find that bottle of homemade "Vanilla". ;-) Just kidding....
