The fluffy white stuff (aka-powdered sugar)…..we don’t use it anymore!

That doesn’t mean I never want to eat frosting again.

I’ve been looking for a way to make powdered sugar, and enjoy an occasional frosted treat (like on Mr. Clean’s Birthday!!).

Those are his Birthday Brownies with “buttercream” frosting……

Anyway, I told you here about why I LOVE coconut sugar!  Basically, it’s a great alternative to white sugar.

If you want to make your own, clean powdered sugar, here is an easy way to do it.

1 cup coconut sugar
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (this is where I got mine!)

Place the coconut sugar and arrowroot in a good quality blender (I don’t have a Vita-Mix or anything fancy, but our blender is pretty powerful). Place the lid on tightly. Start on low speed and gradually work your way up to the highest speed. It will take a few minutes to powder the sugar. You can start and stop the machine if you need to. Just don’t open the lid or you will have powdered sugar floating everywhere in the air!

Keep blending the sugar until it is all powdered and light brown in color. Keep the lid on for a few minutes to let it settle to the bottom. Then place into a glass jar and cover tightly with a lid. Store it in your pantry until ready to use.

This frosting is seriously good folks!
