  • 1-7/8 cups Water Must be filtered water
  • 2 tsp Gelatin
  • 1 tsp Sunflower Oil
  • 1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Cod Liver Oil Fermented
  • 4 tbsp Lactose
  • 2 tsp Nutritional Yeast Flakes

  • 1/4 tsp Bifidobacterium Infantis Powder

  • 2 cups Raw Cow Milk
  • 1/4 cup Raw Whey Made from raw milk or kefir


  1. Start by mixing the nutritional yeast flakes, acerola powder, and Bifidobacterium Infantis Powder together in a bowl so the measuring spoons stay dry.

  2. Add the water to a small pan and put the stove on low-medium heat.

  3. Add the gelatin and lactose to the water and leave the pan on low-medium heat until both are dissolved. Stir occasionally

  4. Remove pan from the stove and stir in the coconut oil until it, too, has dissolved

  5. Dump water mixture from pan into a blender (make sure blender is made to withstand hot/lukewarm water).

  6. Add the rest of the oils (sunflower oil, cod liver oil, and olive oil).

  7. Pour the milk and whey into the blender

  8. Add the rest of the dry ingredients that were mixed earlier

  9. Blend for 5-10 seconds

  10. Remove blender from the base and add cream. Stir cream in until all bubbles on the surface are gone.

  11. Dump formula into a glass jar or glass baby bottles. Store in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

All ingredients except for raw milk, cream, and whey can be found here.

  • All oils must be recommended brands
  • Whey must be made from raw cows milk or kefir (It cannot be powdered whey from the store or whey from making cheese as both will cause the formula to curdle)
  • Raw milk must not be replaced with powdered milk or pasteurized milk. Both are highly processed and lack the nutritional value of raw milk
  • It's best to store formula in glass jars to keep from exposing it to BPA and products found in other containers.
