2 cups whole milk, preferably unprocessed milk from
1/4 cup homemade liquid whey (See recipe for whey, below)

1 teaspoon expeller-expressed sunflower oil
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons coconut oil
2 teaspoons Frontier brand nutritional yeast flakes
2 teaspoons gelatin
1 7/8 cups filtered water
1/4 teaspoon acerola powder
Add gelatin to water and heat gently until gelatin is dissolved.
Place all ingredients in a very clean glass or stainless steel

Variation: Goat Milk Formula
Although goat milk is rich in fat, it must be used with caution in
infant feeding as it lacks folic acid and is low in vitamin
of which are essential to the growth and development of the infant.
Inclusion of nutritional yeast to provide folic acid is essential. To
compensate for low levels of vitamin B12, if preparing the Milk-Based
Formula (above) with goat's milk, add 2 teaspoons frozen organic raw
chicken liver, finely grated to the batch of formula. Be sure to begin
egg-yolk feeding at four months.
