· 4 tablespoons pure lactose (a milk sugar)

· 1 packet of Dr. Mercola Complete Probiotic Powder for Infants

· 2 or more tablespoons of good quality, organic cream (regular, not ultra-pasteurized)

· 1 teaspoon of Carlson’s liquid cod liver oil

· 2 teaspoons organic, virgin coconut oil

· 2 teaspoons Sari Foods non-fortified nutritional yeast

· 4 teaspoons Great Lakes beef hydrolysate gelatin (Before adding the gelatin into the formula, you’ll need to dissolve it in the recommended amount of water; heat gently until completely dissolved.)

· 2 1/4 cups pure filtered water. Make sure your water filter specifically states that it filters out fluoride.

· 1 teaspoon acerola powder

· Optional: 1/4 cup homemade liquid whey

· Optional: Monk fruit sweetener if your child has gotten used to the sweetness of corn syrup-sweetened infant formula and is refusing unsweetened formula. AVOID brands containing erythritol.

Place all ingredients in a clean glass or stainless steel container and mix well. This recipe will make 36 ounces.
