If you can’t find powdered sugar that fits your nutrition plan, here’s how to make powdered sugar at home, quickly and easily.
This simple technique opens up a world of baking possibilities!
I had long given up the idea of ever enjoying powdered sugar again. I mean, what else can you make powdered sugar out of other than regular white sugar?
Apparently, there ARE a few things you can make it out of and my Vitamix helped me realize this.
Today’s “recipe” isn’t really a recipe per se, but if you’ve been eating clean and missing powdered sugar, there IS a solution and I’ll share that with you here.
So I recently purchased a bag of organic Sucanat. It’s considered clean sugar and I was curious to see what sort of effect it would have on my blood sugar. But while the unopened bag sat there staring at me from the countertop, I happened to glance over at my Vitamix and the snazzy dry ingredients blender attachment I purchased with it. And that got me to thinkin’…
Oh ya. You guessed it. Powdered sugar baby! And not only did I figure out the regular white variety, but I also got a brown sugar variety too! It’s really pretty simple. And if you don’t have a Vitamix, you can also use any other high-powered blender or even a coffee grinder (though, I’ve never tried it in a coffee grinder).
Vitamix + Sucanat = powdered brown sugar
Vitamix + Coconut Sugar = powdered brown sugar
Vitamix + Xylitol = powdered white sugar
I swear, it really is that easy. I put about 2 cups worth in the dry blender and got it up to high speed. Within a few seconds, I had powdered sugar.
So then I had to take it one step farther and try out some frosting. It worked!
I simply squeezed some lemon juice into the xylitol powdered sugar for a fabulous lemon frosting and added a touch of milk to the Sucanat powdered sugar for brown sugar frosting. Incredible!!
So incredible, in fact, that I won’t be making it again except for the holidays. This stuff is addicting! But just had to share…
