BBC: a delicious, Banana, BAILEYS, Coconut drink...frosty and tropical

Have you ever heard of a BBC? No, not the news. The drink?

Apparently it’s a popular drink in the Caribbean. And our friends who recently went on a cruise, made this drink for us. And now I’m sharing it with you. BBC is a Banana, Bailey’s Irish Cream and Coconut drink.

I think I might finally be panicking that the end of summer is upon us. Could be why I shared Pink Lemonade Cupcakes earlier this week, and now a super fun, cocktail today!

But, let’s be clear, this BBC is NOT only for summer. Yes, I imagine sipping this frosty drink on the beach is paradise. But, imagine this. Hot fire. Snuggled up in a blanket. Great book. Frosty drink. Yes?

You decide when the perfect time is for this drink, and while you’re deciding, I’m just going to enjoy this delicious beverage tonight!

Each “recipe” makes two servings. One for me, and one for me. Ha! Obviously you can adjust the ingredients to serve as many (or as little) as you need. And of course, feel free to make your drink stronger by adding in my BAILEYS. Please drink responsibly though, k?

  1. This sounds like an “any time is a good time” drink. I adore baileys and the coconut and banana is just going to make it even better. It’s a healthy drink now.

  2. We better double the batch. Two for you and two for…me!

  3. I’m all for this drink any time of the year! I don’t think you can go wrong!

    This BBC is so much more fun than the news organization!
    Never thought of combining Bailey’s with banana before! That’s really neat. I want to try this in my everlasting pursuit of continuing the frozen drink trend into fall!

  5. I want this for breakfast! Looks so creamy, rich, fabulous and I love baileys! Pinned! I’ve drank plenty of things similar to this in the Caribbean. Not sure it had an actual name, but now I know!

  6. I’ve never heard of a BBC, but I want to get to know them!! This looks delish!

  7. Mmm, this looks delicious! I love basically everything you’ve put into this drink – I’ll definitely have to make this soon, especially since I have some Baileys sitting at home, ha.

  8. Oh, I’m thinking this is an all year round kind of drink. Perfect for hot summer days and perfect for those chilly winter days when you are wishing it was summer. Yum!! I think I need two of these too!

  9. YUM, I want this delicious drink for breakfast right now! 🙂 Pinned!

  10. YOU HAD ME at coconut and Bailey’s!!!! This sounds incredible.

  11. OOoo! This sounds absolutely amazing! I love Baileys and cream of coconut! Pinned!

  12. BBC use to make me think of dry British humor, but now it will always make me think of Bananas, Baileys, and Coconut. This is a much better trade off. Must go make this NOW!

  13. Sounds sooo good. But this may sound stupiid! Where do I get cream of coconut? Is it liquor like Irish cream or something I get at the grocery store?

  14. Oh this sounds perfect! Even better than the PSL!!

  15. Kari

    You can get cream of coconut at grocery store in liquor section by mixers so club soda or piña coloda mix… It’s a non alcoholic mixer….
    This drink is awesome – not a strong coconut flavor, just enough!

  17. How did you know that at least one of us would think BBC, like Sherlock and Doctor Who? Anyway, now that I’ve been educated, it makes more sense! Looks like the perfect creamy drink to enjoy while dreaming of a Caribbean cruise.

  18. I love everything about this! So delicious!

  19. OOOOOOOH I LOVE THIS!! And I would also drink it in the fall or even winter, a nice bit of summer when we need it the most!

  20. If there’s coconut I’m in! Looks fabulous. I think I’ll make it ASAP.
    Have a beautiful Wednesday!

  21. YUM! I love the 2 servings “one for me, one for me” idea. I probably follow that serving size more often than I should. I think I would with this drink too. It looks delish! Pinning!!

  22. I love this recipe! It sounds so great! Definitely going to give it a try.

  23. Never heard of a BBC drink before.. but anything with banana, baileys and coconut is a hit in my books. Definitely need to recreate the recipe, looks so incredibly sweet and delicious!
