Place frozen pineapple chunks into a food processor and pulse a few times to get it moving. Pulse while streaming in the coconut milk. Continue pulsing until completely smooth. Scoop into serving bowls and top with toasted coconut and a cherry. For a boozy dessert, pour 1 shot dark rum over the top and enjoy!
