What is a BBC

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

Apparently the BBC Drink a popular drink in the Caribbean. And our friends who recently went on a cruise made this cocktail for us. And now I’m sharing it with you.

A BBC Drink is a Banana, Baileys 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 Bailey’s Drink recipe 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 BBC Drink, and while you’re deciding, I’m just going to enjoy this delicious beverage tonight!

Ingredient Notes

Just three basic ingredients for today’s BBC drink.

  • Bananas – the riper they are, the sweeter they are! In a pinch, you can ripen bananas in the oven! So easy and ready in minutes.
  • Bailey’s Irish Cream – classic! You can use Kahlua for a fun coffee twist!
  • Cream of Coconut– not to be confused with coconut milk. I find the cream of coconut in the grocery store near the juices and drinks.
  • Don’t forget to top it with some whipped cream and toasted coconut!

Easy Instructions

BBC Drinks are super easy to make. The hardest part is toasting some coconut to top the drink with – and that part is technically optional.

If you can push “start” on a blender, you can make a BBC cocktail!

This BBC Drink recipe uses cream of coconut for the “C” part of BBC. You can usually find cream of coconut near the drinks. Not to be confused with coconut milk.

Cream of coconut is much thicker and will help make this drink super creamy and delicious.

  • To make the BBC cocktail, add the banana, Baileys, and cream of coconut to a blender along with plenty of ice to make it thick and cold. Blend until it is nice and smooth.
  • 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 BBC Drink stronger by adding in more Baileys.

Please drink responsibly though, k?

Bailey’s Drinks

Looking for other ways to use up that bottle of Baileys?

In addition to this frosty BBC Drink, there are lots of fun drinks made with Baileys that you can whip up throughout the year.

Try my recipe for The Perfect Tan – ice cream, Baileys and chocolate syrup. What could be better?

Whether you shake up one of these drinks or pull out your blender for a BBC Drink, your friends will love these drinks made with Baileys.

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

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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?

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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!

  11. 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.
