Ellington Young, 7, of Cedar Hill, Texas, loves to help out in the kitchen, making ice pops, pizza and even homemade apple dumplings.
For summer, ice pops are her go-to treat. Here she shows us how to make a few recipes and gives other kids tips on how to get started in the kitchen.
Lemon-Lime Soda and Gummy Bear Ice Pop
Fill ice pop container with lemon-lime soda and add about 10 gummy bears or other gummy candy. Freeze overnight.
Root Beer Float Ice Pop
Fill ice pop container halfway with root beer and wait for the foam to go down. Add a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Add a little bit more root beer at a time, each time waiting for the foam to go down before adding more. Freeze overnight.
Strawberry Lemonade Ice Pop
Fill ice pop container with lemonade. Add your desired amount of chopped fresh strawberries. Freeze overnight.
Blueberry Yogurt Ice Pop
Fill ice pop container with vanilla yogurt (not Greek yogurt because you don’t want it to be too thick). Add a couple of teaspoons of fresh blueberries, plus some honey and fresh lemon juice if desired. Freeze overnight. (This was the adults’ favorite pop.)
