  1. Fill a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup with filtered water and remove 2 tablespoons (this will give you 1 7/8 cup water).

  2. Pour about half the water into a pan and turn burner on medium.

  3. Add the gelatin and lactose and let dissolve, stirring occasionally.

  4. When gelatin and lactose are dissolved, remove pan from heat and add the rest of the water to cool.

  5. Stir in the coconut oil and butter oil until melted.

  6. Put remaining ingredients in a glass blender. Be sure to use only liquid whey and never powdered whey from making cheese as it will curdle the goat milk formula.

  7. Add the water mixture and blend for about 3 seconds.

  8. Pour goats milk formula into glass baby bottles or a large glass jar and refrigerate.

  9. Before giving to baby, warm glass bottle in a pan of hot water or a bottle warmer (I like these). Never microwave baby bottles!

Recipe Notes

Do not substitute pasteurized milk or goat milk powder as these are heavily processed, denatured and allergenic foods. You may use plain, whole milk goat kefir or homemade goat yogurt in place of the milk portion of the milk if raw goat milk is not available in your area. Whole Foods has a quality brand of goat milk kefir available. 

Cow lactose may be substituted for the goat lactose.

Do NOT use ultrapasteurized (UHT) cream. It is highly allergenic. Raw or pasteurized cream is acceptable.

Use only organic, unrefined, low oleic, cold pressed sunflower oil for this recipe. The brand linked to in the ingredients list is recommended.

The raw chicken liver should be frozen for 14 days or longer as recommended by the USDA for safe consumption.  It is easiest to grate raw liver when it is frozen! Alternatively, 1/2 tsp of raw, desiccated liver powder may be substituted (find it here). 

Collagen powder may be substituted for the gelatin in a pinch (more on peptides in baby formula in this article).

Use the optional molasses only if baby has issues with constipation. Only use as needed.
