Vegan Plant Based Baby Formula

Vegan Plant Based Baby Formula

              When my daughter Anneliese was 4 months old, I got pregnant with my daughter Aspen. Nursing and being pregnant really took a toll on my body.

Around 6-7 months Anneliese stopped gaining weight and became very lethargic. She started trying to eat her weight in people food, which resulted in her not getting proper nutrition.

I was desperate to find a formula that was dairy-free, soy-free and no processed sugars or chemicals. Well, there is NOTHING on the market like that so I had to do some research… I finally found a recipe I saw fit for my baby girl, did some additional research on the ingredients, and was pleased. The vegan formula below is adapted from thesnapmom.com

I will tell you that it has been amazing for my little girl. As soon as we started giving it to her, she started gaining weight and just thriving mentally and physically. It is certainly a blessing we are able to use natural plant based ingredients to nourish our babies!

 I strongly believe that breast milk is the absolute best for your children. However, in life circumstances arise where breast milk is no longer an option. This formula does an amazing job giving your little ones what they need!

Drinking Green Formula

(Tommee tippee bottles are my all time favorite to use!)

Anneliese is now a year and a half and still drinks some occasionally.

Praise God for the plants he put on this earth to nourish our bodies.

  • What age is this suitable for? I have a three month old. From my knowledge it seems balanced for his age. I would use this to supplement seeing as though my supply has dropped a bunch. 😩

  • Hi! Thanks for this post!
    How long can will the milk last(liquid form) in the fridge? Is there a dry recipe for this milk? Also, where can I find the homemade almond milk recipe? Thanks

    • It will last 24 to 36 hours! We don’t have a dry formula yet! We are working on it though! The almond milk recipe isn’t up yet. 2 cups of almonds soaked in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Add to blender with 4 cups of water. blend until smooth and drain through a nut bag ! Simple!

  • Hey girls,
    I was so excited to find your vegan baby formula. Since the vegan formula out there is never in stock and is insanely expensive. I made my first batch and froze it right away since I was going to slowly introduce it. I started him out on 2oz for 3 days then went to 3, 4, then 5oz. At 5 oz it made him sick, he spit up throughout the day and then threw up the next morning. So we gave it a brake for about 36 hrs and tried a small amount, and that also made him throw up. So we decided to wait about 10 days to introduce it again and that was last night. He drank 1/2 an oz and realized what it was and wouldn’t drink anymore. He woke up two hrs later so sick…. throwing up.
    I am not telling you all this because I think it is bad recipe, but just wanted to ask if you would have any idea of what would make him so Ill from it… and also if you had any modification suggestions.
    Thanks Ladies! I did send this recipe to my nutritionist and she thought it was a great recipe.
    Thanks for your help!

    • Hi Taylor!

      I am so sorry to hear that your little one got to sick off the formula! Poor guy 🙁

      Did you use all the ingredients/brands I suggested? Also how old is your son? I have never had this issue but I will do my best to figure out what it is that is causing him to get sick!

      • I used most all the same brands, there were a couple different brands my nutritionist suggested to use, and we used avocado oil instead of the Sacha oil.

        I am just confused because he did well on it the first few days…

        It may have been my fault in that I gave him too much too soon, and then his little body was like heck no after that…
        Just your thoughts would be great:)
        We are going to try something a little different and see how that goes.

  • Hi! I am very interested in this recipe but wanted to know if you mentioned this to a pediatrician of any sort? And was this a sole source of nutrients for your daughter? I have made this and my son isn’t to fond of the taste but slowly drinks it.

    • Hi Dee! Yes I consulted with my pediatrician and she was pleased with the ingredients! I used it for sole nutrition for both of my girls and it worked out. It’s an acquired taste so hopefully your son will soon get used to the taste!

  • Hi I wrote before and write this last night but I didn’t see it . I inquired about nutritional facts to compare to other formulas that have them . We have a 5 1/2 mo old she did not do well with soy. I tried to figure the % or mg . It became to hard to convert based on an adult diet of 2000 cal . to infant . Just wondering if anyone is better at it. I’m looking for a nutritional facts label for this formula . Thank you!!
