Every one of my kids had this recipe and are all fucking tanks now. a company called radiant life sells kits online with everything you need minus the raw milk and cream etc

Homemade Baby Formula


  • 2 cups whole raw cow’s milk, preferably from pasture-fed cows
  • 1/4 cup homemade liquid whey (see recipe below). Note: Do NOT use powdered whey or whey for cheese-making. This will cause the formula to curdle. Only use homemade whey made from yogurt, kefir or separated raw milk.
  • 4 tablespoons lactose
  • 1/4 teaspoon bifidobacterium infantis
  • 2 or more tablespoons of raw cream, more if you are using milk from Holstein cows
  • 1/2 teaspoon unflavored high-vitamin or high-vitamin fermented cod liver oil or 1 teaspoon regular cod liver oil
  • 1 teaspoon organic expeller-expressed sunflower oil
  • 2 teaspoons organic extra virgin, cold pressed coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • 2 teaspoons grass-fed beef gelatin
  • 1-7/8 cups filtered water
  • 1/4 teaspoon acerola powder


  1. Pour 2 cups filtered water into a pyrex measuring pitcher and remove 2 tablespoons. This will give you the needed 1-7/8 cups of water.
  2. Pour about half of the water into a pan and place over a medium flame.
  3. Add the gelatin, lactose and coconut oil to the pan and let dissolve, stirring occasionally.
  4. When the gelatin, lactose and coconut oil are dissolved, remove from heat and add the remaining water to cool the mixture.
  5. Meanwhile, place remaining ingredients into a blender – no particular order is necessary.
  6. Add the water mixture and blend for about ten seconds or until throughly combined.
  7. Place in glass bottles or a glass jar and refrigerate.
  8. Before giving to baby, warm bottles by placing in hot water or a bottle warmer. NEVER warm bottles in a microwave oven.
  9. A batch of homemade formula will last for about 3-4 days in the fridge.

Cody credits his wife for supplying this infant formula recipe. They’re raising more than a handful of strong children in robust health.

Of course, breastfeeding is optimal, getting breast milk from another mother is second best, but those aren’t always options. It’s good to have recipes for cases like this.
