Pineapple, chia and coconut milk smoothie

Before our warm weather completely fades away, I wanted to make a tropical smoothie with a bright flavour and thought pineapple might make things interesting.

I loved how creamy and naturally sweet this was!  It reminded me of Malibu and pineapple (but not in a bad way, more of a palm trees swaying, warm breezes, lying on the beach way).

And do you like my little giraffe?  A few years back I received a cocktail set as a gift with a lot of cute little umbrellas and figurines (very 70s, I love it) and thought a couple would be perfect for this smoothie.
