Did you know you can easily make homemade powdered sugar at home? No kidding. I didn’t know this until very recently. Actually, it’s one of the easiest things you can do!
O, how do I love making my own powdered sugar? Let me count the ways. . .
1. Sugar Selection
I can use whatever kind of sugar I want. For this tutorial, I will be using Sucanat, my favorite sugar. (You can find Sucanat here, but I find it is much cheaper from the bulk bins at our local health food store.) It is packed with the minerals your body is aching for, and it offers a beautiful, almost caramel-like flavor to dishes and goodies. Thumbs up. (I also use it to sub for brown sugar.) But you can also use white sugar, evaporated cane juice, turbinado sugar. . . just plug in your fave.
2. Superior Flavor
The taste is out of this world! Have you ever tasted commercial powdered sugar, just by itself? Yuck. Your homemade powdered sugar will knock any pre-made, processed powdered sugar right out of the competition. It’s just that good.
3. Simple and Quick
It’s also nice to know that if you run out, you can simply make more homemade powdered sugar right then and there. It takes less than five minutes. That’s a lot less time than getting into the car and driving to the nearest grocer for an inferior product!
Pour a cup of your chosen sugar into your blender. (Here’s the high-speed blender I use and love.)
Start off slowly, and work your way up to full speed. Let the sugar blend until it’s a fine powder.
Now, WAIT. This is why:
Tiny sugar particles want to float around all groovy-like for a few minutes. If you interrupt their dance, sneezing ensues. Experience speaking here. So just wait a few minutes.
There you have it! Your own homemade powdered sugar. Sweet! 😀 Now how easy was that?
Use it any way you’d use powdered sugar.
Also, I love whisking it into recipes like dips and sauces because it blends in so well, instead of having large sugar particles that take a while to dissolve. Instant bonus!
