  1. Drain the pineapple chunks, reserving the juice. Put 180g pineapple in a blender with 8 tbsp juice, the rum and coconut cream (use the hardened cream at the top of the tin). Blitz until smooth, then stir in the lime zest. Pour into 4 x 100ml lolly moulds and freeze for 4 hrs or until solid.
  2. Put the desiccated coconut in a bowl and line a small board or tray with baking paper. Melt the chocolate in a small heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, or microwave in 20-sec bursts, stirring between each, until melted.
  3. Working one at a time, quickly dip each lolly in the bowl of chocolate, tilting the bowl to give a diagonal line and allowing excess chocolate to drip off. Scatter with the coconut and place on the prepared board. Transfer to the freezer for 1 hr for the chocolate to set.
