No, you totally read that right. Skinny Powdered Sugar. So how’s that possible? Here’s the funny thing about powdered sugar that you may not have known. There’s nothing that different about powdered sugar, except that it’s been cut very finely. So finely, in fact, that it feels almost snow-like. Or baking soda like. Or baking powder like. All that really happens when a person makes powdered sugar is a bunch of regular, granulated sugar being chopped so finely with a blender or another machine that it comes out with a different texture. Same product, different texture if you will. So you should make your own Skinny Powdered Sugar for a number of reasons. Namely, so you can make amazing icing with your powdered sugar. You’ll need the following:
In my pictures, you’ll notice my Yellow Rose Bouquet and Marble Tray, both of which I am madly in love with. I keep them in my bedroom / office and they make the room look so classic and beautiful. Also, that Spiral Whisk is the best out there.
- 1 cup Truvia Baking Blend, a Stevia/Sugar blend, or Xylitol (380 calories - nutrition is based off of Truvia Baking Blend and will differ according to brand)
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch or arrowroot, if desired (10 calories - I would recommend)
- Pour sweetener of choice into a blender and blend for about 30 seconds. If you need to, pause and give the blender a brief shake to stir up the clumps. Blend until the mixture looks soft and begins to "smoke" - meaning it looks like a dust storm.
- It helps for storage to add a teaspoon or two of cornstarch or arrowroot.
This recipe goes so well with my favorite skinny cream cheese frosting. You have to try it. It’s totally better than any other low-calorie cream cheese frosting that I’ve tried. I’m totally not bragging, by the way. I flopped, flopped, flopped until I finally got it right. But it goes perfectly with my skinny carrot cake. Now that I may brag about.
