Recipe: April Fool's Day Banachos

A fun April Fool's Day recipe that looks like nachos.


  • 1 banana
  • vanilla pudding
  • 1 drop of orange food coloring
  • vanilla wafers
  • green fruit roll up


  1. Make the pudding and put 1 drop of orange food coloring in it to make it look like nacho cheese.
  2. Put in the fridge for 1 hour to firm up.
  3. Cut some strips of a green fruit roll up. We folded them over and rolled them up to make our jalapeno peppers.
  4. Slice the banana in 3 strips and cut those into triangles to look like chips.
  5. Start out by layering at the bottom the vanilla wafers (which you will not see).
  6. Put the bananas on top of that, but save 4 or 5.
  7. Put on the pudding and then place the extra banana chips around the sides.
  8. Add your fruit roll up peppers and there you go...Banachos!
