  1. Alissa,

    What are your thoughts on this milk for an infant (3 months old). None of the specialty amino based formulas recommended are working and the insurance is not covering any even though they are medically necessary. What else could be added for calories? I am already supplementing with rice cereal.

    • Have you talked to your pediatrician about dairy-free formulas? Amino acid based formulas don’t work for all infants with dairy issues. I would speak to your pediatrician about the other options.

    Thank you for posting this recipe for potato milk. I have been tested for cow’s milk allergy so this is wonderful – I couldn’t find any other recipe online.

    One question – if I wanted to make a quart then I would simply multiply the ingredients to get that amount?

    how long we can keep milk in refrigeration.
    i am from india. how could i buy potato milk as i feel they are fortified. since my child is autistic she cant have much variety. currently she is eating her cereal in coconut milk which i take out fresh daily. how about gluten free oats?

  6. Hello, I’d like to try your recipe for potato milk, but the directions are a little confusing. How long should I boil the potato? And I don’t understand the part about reserving the water and adding water, since the water and potato are then both added to the blender. Thanks!

    • The cooking time will depend on how large the cubes are. You want them to be quite tender – so 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of the cubes. Basically, when you drain the water from the potatoes, you don’t want to send it down the sink. Reserve it, and if you don’t have 4 cups of it, then you need to add more water to equal 4 cups. You will add that 4 cups to your recipe to blend.
