To get your child accustomed to solid foods, you could use some goat’s milk formula in the meals you are serving your child. If you are not yet familiar with how to do that and how to make these preparations, no need to worry, because Oli6 has you covered with a goat milk formula recipe for every preference; this delivering all the benefits of goat’s milk formula in one goat milk formula recipe!
Our first recipe is a favourite recipe for many parents and children, because who does not like a nice selection of pancakes? If you experience some problems getting your child used to normal breakfast, then the goat’s milk formula pancakes might do the trick.
To make goat formula pancakes, you will need ¾ cup of goat formula, ¾ cup of whole wheat flour, 1 egg, 2 teaspoons of coconut oil, 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
Once you have all the ingredients, simply mix them together and add one full tablespoon to a warm skillet. Wait until bubbles form on the pancake and then flip until cooked fully.
Depending on the taste preferences of your child, you could add some other things to the pancakes; this includes some delicious mashed blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, bananas or mango. Doing this will also help children to develop healthier eating habit early.
To get your child used to eating yoghurt for breakfast, you can also create your own yoghurt made from goat formula. There are many ways to create a healthy goat formula yoghurt for your child, but here is the easiest one.
Warm up the formula in a saucepan. Ideally, you want to get the formula on 185 degrees. If you do not have thermometer at hand, then you can wait until some little bubbles are appearing on the edges of the pan. However, please make sure that the formula is not boiling!
Once the formula has heated up properly, let it cool down for about five minutes and then add a yoghurt starter. If you do not have a yoghurt starter, you can also use 2 tablespoons of regular Greek yoghurt.
When the yoghurt starter and formula are mixed together, then you can add a thickening agent. Please note that the thickening agent is not obligated, so you can leave this part out if you want to.
The formula-based banana ice cream is an excellent choice for parents who want to get their child used to some healthier flavours. Of course, to introduce your child to these flavours, you can use goat’s milk toddler formula to ease the transition.
To make a formula-based banana ice cream, you will need half a sliced banana, ½ teaspoon of cinnamon an 1oz of goat’s milk toddler formula. Please note that the cinnamon is not obligated, since some children can be allergic to it. So, if you don’t know if your child can eat cinnamon, it might be best to leave this out of the recipe.
Before you start making the formula-based banana ice cream, freeze the banana slices for at least 2 hours. Once frozen properly, add the banana slices, cinnamon and the formula to a food processor. Blend until you get a smooth and ice cream-like texture.
You are not obligated to serve this ice cream instantly, because it can be stored in the freezer. However, if you aren’t going to freeze it, you must serve it immediately.
If a child starts to teethe, then you could use this delightful recipe with goat’s milk toddler formula. To create this unique recipe, you will need a pacifier, bottle cap and 2 to 2.5 ounces of your child’s goat’s milk toddler formula.
To create the popsicles, pour the formula into the bottle cap. Then, stick the pacifier in the formula. Place the popsicles in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Once frozen, they are ready to be eaten!
Healthy smoothies are also a good idea to introduce children to healthier beverages. However, if your toddler is not taken to a healthy smoothie immediately, you can make it with some formula.
To create a healthy smoothie for your little one, add 5.5 ounces of formula to the freezer. Leave in the freezer for at least 2 hours until completely frozen. Once frozen, add the formula with your child’s favourite selection of baby food to a blender. Then, let it sit for a couple of minutes and then add to a bottle or cup for smoothie enjoyment!
Nothing is stopping mums from experimenting with flavours a little when their baby is getting used to solid foods. One recipe that enables mums to experiment with flavours a little is our formula-based chocolate & Banana custard.
To create the formula-based chocolate & Banana custard, you will need 1 teaspoon of cornflour, 1 teaspoon of chocolate powder (alternatively you can use granules), 100 millilitres of goat’s milk toddler formula and 1 small banana.
Start by mixing the cornflour, chocolate powder and the goat’s milk toddler formula. Then, place the mixture in the microwave for a minimum of 1 minute and a maximum of 2 minutes. If uncertain, just make sure that the mixture gets a little thickened. If you prefer not to use the microwave, you can also heat the mixture on the hob; this is usually easier as you can see the mixture thickening as you go along.
Once the mixture is thick enough, chop up the banana and mix with the custard. The result? A delicious dessert that gets your child more familiar with different flavours.
One of the most common breakfast meals for kids is a good bowl of porridge. Fortunately, you can also use formula to make some porridge, which can make the transition from formula to solid foods a little easier.
To make the porridge, you simply need some rolled oats and goat’s milk formula. First, add the oats to a food processor and process until they almost look like flower. Then, add them to a plastic container for future use.
Once you have prepared the oats, grab one part of the oats with two parts of goat’s milk formula. Heat it all up in a saucepan for approximately four minutes. Then, leave to cool and add some additional flavour such as apple, coconut, or some mashed bananas.
