Coconut Berry Smoothie

I have been playing around with smoothie recipes.  I wanted one that would be great for Breakfast.  So I wanted it higher in calories and very filling.  I made this the other day for snack.  It was very filling, I could not eat much dinner that day has I was still full from this smoothie.  So I made it again today for breakfast and took a photo.  So I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.  It is a nice break from eggs:)

  1. What is coconut cream? Is this something you make or can it be bought via retail?
