Turtle Bay’s Monkey’s Lunch

Monkey's Lunch Turtle Bay
This is by far my favorite vacation drink. It’s refreshing and tastes like a treat at the same time.

Here’s the original from our trip to Oahu in 2011:
Monkey's LunchTurns out I had been using too much Baileys and too much Kahlua in my homemade version. Opps! Thankfully, Turtle Bay released the official recipe here.

Turtle Bay's Monkey's Lunch


  • 1 Banana
  • 1.5 ounces Baileys
  • 1.5 ounces Kahlua
  • Ice about 1 to 1.5 cups
  • Chocolate Syrup to line the glass


  • Add the first three ingredients to a blender. Blend.
  • Then add ice and blend until smooth.
  • Add chocolate syrup to the bottom and sides of the glass. Pour into your favorite glass (I'm partial to oversized wine glasses). Or add a straw and your favorite garnish and enjoy!

Dessert drink

My opinion:
This is my favorite summer dessert drink. I love taking it to parties! Of note, only three servings fit into an empty Kahlua bottle.
