frozen smoothie baby bites
You wouldn’t believe that just a few months ago this little ball of chub was in the 5th percentile for weight! My 8-month old daughter was steadily growing tall, just not filling out, so my pediatrician recommended supplementing baby formula to “fatten her up.” I shop Sams Club, a lot. With a family of 5 (and 2 of them are her hungry brothers!) we frequent there weekly! I stopped by the baby aisle and grabbed a canister of Sam’s Clubs Member’s Mark® Advantage® Infant Formula and gave it a go! I love that this brand of quality formula provides complete nutrition for my baby girl at almost half the cost of Similac and Enfamil… and that I can put those savings towards diapers! lol
I knew I needed to sneak in the formula another avenue since I am still breastfeeding in addition to her 2 bottles a day. I decided to try making frozen smoothie bites with a few scoops of Sam’s Clubs Member’s Mark® Advantage® Infant Formula and you know what? She gobbled them up! In addition to a unique blend of nutrients that support my baby’s brain development, (this baby formula contains dual prebiotics, which help support her delicate immune system,) they’re packed with spinach, strawberries, a peach and a banana! I’ve got all the good stuff squeezed into tiny fish and flower shaped molds.
Frozen Baby Smoothie Bites:
- 1 C. Water
- Sam’s Clubs Member’s Mark® Advantage® Infant Formula
- 1/2 C. Spinach
- 1/2 Peach
- 5-6 Strawberries
- Fun Shaped Molds
Just blend and pour into ice cube trays. Freeze for 1 hour or until firm.
Note: TOO cold for little hands so once frozen, put into a baby mesh teething bag and let baby enjoy + soothe sore baby gums!
Sam’s Clubs Member’s Mark® Advantage® Infant Formula has 4 types of formula specific for your own baby’s needs… you can use the handy Formula Finder to determine the right formula for your little one! Pretty neat.
Grab a canister and make a set of these yummy smoothie bites to sneak in some added nutrition of your own! Best mom hack ever, if I do say so myself! 😉

Thanks so much, Crystal 😀
Love the fun shapes. The littles will love this!
Great idea girls! I wished I would’ve thought of this when my two were young. Instead I just frozen in ice cube trays or small containers. This is way more cute. Thanks for sharing at Thriving on Thursdays last week. I’m featuring this one at tomorrow’s party. Thanks for always linking up. It’s lovely to see you each week.

Hi. With the smoothie bites. Where do I purchase the molds to make them with??

Li used to read to my kids every night, it was one of my favorite parts of the day. I have a daughter, 26, and a son, 21 and it seems like yesterday, I was rocking them and reading our favorite books. For my daughter, it was “I Love You the Purplest ” and to this day, I still tell her that. I’m very sentimental so I keep things that have special meaning and when she had her son 8 months ago, I wanted to pass the book on to her. But…I couldn’t find it anywhere, we’d moved several times and I was devastated. So I got on Amazon an ordered another one. The very same day it was delivered, my husband found the original book in the attic! So now she has the original at her house and I have the new one at mine. I gave her a “bring a book, instead of a car” type shower, so my little peanut now has his own library!
And for my son, it was “The Kissing Hand”, he was very much a momma’s boy, so whenever we had to be apart, we’d kiss the palm of each other’s hands so we could keep the kiss with us all day long. This was a huge help when it was time to go off to school.
And I adore your daughter’s nursery!!
