1.Pit fresh cherries, reserving 4 cherries on the stem to serve. Place pitted cherries and lemonade in a small frying pan over high heat, bring to the boil. Reduce heat, simmer 5 minutes, mashing with a fork a few times during cooking, or until cherries soften slightly and liquid thickens slightly. Cool.
2.Meanwhile, beat cream in a small bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold lemon curd and coconut flakes into cream. Spoon three-quarters of the cherry mixture onto cream mixture, do not stir.
3.Spoon cream mixture into four ⅔ cup (160ml) glasses. Top with remaining cherry mixture, reserved cherries and extra toasted coconut

Cherry mixture can be made a day ahead; refrigerate in an airtight container. Lemon curd is available from supermarkets
