Making your own homemade powdered sugar is one of the easiest things you will ever do in the kitchen! Never buy it again!
What I’m about to tell you might just change your life: You do not have to buy powdered sugar.
As in, you never, ever have to even think about it. Cross it off your shopping list this Christmas and…forever!
Because making your own powdered sugar is one of the easiest things you can ever learn to do in the kitchen.
I am so not kidding!
I feel funny even writing a whole blog post about this because it’s just that easy to make homemade powdered sugar.
But after doing a live Periscope of me making my own yesterday (when I decided to make some Christmas goodies on a whim!), I decided I ought to publish this post because, lo and behold, so many ladies had never heard of this little trick!
Homemade Powdered Sugar
- granulated sugar (any kind--white sugar, cane sugar, sucanat, coconut sugar--whatever floats your boat!)
- a blender
- Pour sugar into the blender.
- Start the blender.
- Watch your granulated sugar turn into sand (a.k.a. powdered sugar).
Now, I do have a high-powered blender, but I promise you it does not matter what type of blender you use.
In fact, I’ve had some friends tell me they have actually seen better results making their own powdered sugar in cheaper blenders.
For years, I used a cheap blender I had gotten as a wedding gift. I don’t even remember the brand; it obviously did not make that big of an impression on me!
It could not grind ice worth a flip, but when I poured granulated sugar into it, it worked its magic and turned it into powdered sugar in a flash.
Now why would you want to make your own powdered sugar?
1. It eliminates unnecessary trips to the store.
In case you didn’t know, I hate shopping.
The only place I like to shop is ALDI, and I even like to keep my trips there to no more than once a week.
Anything that eliminates the need for me to get out to the stores any more than I already do is a huge win in my book!
2. It’s healthier for you.
Now, sugar in general is not healthy at all.
In addition, most store-bought powdered sugars come with anti-caking agents, like cornstarch. Making your own powdered sugar is the best way to guarantee that it’s 100% pure!
3. It is possibly cheaper.
Since I haven’t bought powdered sugar in so long, it’s hard for me to state this as a fact, but when I did a quick Amazon search, powdered sugar was coming up as slightly more expensive than regular sugar.
If you buy regular sugar, then, and just make your own powdered sugar, you will save a little money in the process.
It really is this easy to make your own powdered sugar! Give it a whirl…no pun intended!! 😉
