Did you know that the powdered sugar from the store has “anti-caking agents” in it?? Yep, it’s not just sugar. It could contain cornstarch (almost certainly from genetically modified corn- yuck!), flour, calcium phosphate or other extras.
Why eat that nasty stuff when we can make our own powdered sugar at home?! Besides, we can use dehydrated cane juice, which is full of good minerals! So much healthier and it won’t have that icky aftertaste that the store-bought stuff has. Win! 😉
What You’ll Need
- Dehydrated Cane Juice, also called “Rapadura” (enter to win some, here!) or another unprocessed sugar, but I think that’s the best.
- A blender or clean spice grinder
What To Do
Grind it up!! No, I’m serious. Just put it in the blender (or spice/coffee grinder) and let ‘er rip! If you want it extra-fine, just let it go longer or adjust the coarseness setting. It really is that easy. 🙂 I did 1/3 cup of granulated sugar and it came out as 1/2 cup of powdered sugar.
Since we aren’t adding any anti-caking agent, it may clump if it’s stored in a damp place. It’s so quick and easy to make, though, that it’s not a problem to make it up fresh when you need it. Enjoy!!
