Diabetic Friendly-Sugar Free Powdered Sugar

Dutch Reyveld Recipe

By Dutch Reyveld Dutchr

Prep Time:

These are two methods of making your own Sugar Free Powdered Sugar.

The first is just to make one for dusting and the other is to act as bulk in a recipe.


1 c
splenda granulated
1 tsp
part splenda granulated
parts non-fat dry milk powder
parts cornstarch

Directions Step-By-Step

In the first for dusting, grind thoroughly in a blender and store in a tightly capped jar. Don't try to use a food processor for either of these. (The cornstarch acts as an anti-caking agent)
In the second, again grind thoroughly and store the same. This can be use when powdered sugar is called for as an ingredient IN the recipe and will give some bulk.
I use the first often on Lemon Bars and some Bundt cakes. The second, I use to make my own version of Swiss Mocha Powder, which I like in my coffee. Omitting the cornstarch, I mix it with Ramstadt-Breda Rich Dark Cocoa and store in a jar. Add one tsp. of that to fresh ground/brewed coffee and sneer at Starbucks! LOL BTW, I use Dunkin' Donuts regular blend beans. They're killing Starbucks with it...(The Ramstadt-Breda Rich Dark Cocoa is available at preparedpantry.com It's VERY good for this and baking)
For OTHER International flavored coffee powders, grind sugar-free hard candies such as peppermint, butterscotch, hazelnut etc. Sweet n' Low has a range of them. I make gifts of these to Diabetic friends for Christmas along w/ the recipe so they can make more for themselves. They make great gifts for your Diabetic or weight-conscious friends. Pretty simple. Dry non fat milk powder, non-caffeine instant coffee granules for those that only drink that, sugar-free candy powder and some Splenda if you want sweeter.
Jolly Rancher, Werther's Original, Crystal Light and Lifesavers all also have these and most are available at Amazon.com

I have a question Dutch,
What is your purpose for adding dry powdered milk in this?
I only use Splenda and Cornstarch when I make my powdered sugar.

New to this site. As a person with diabetes who uses Stevia, I'm wondering if you ever had success with it making xxxx sugar?

Dutch, you are a very refreshing cook. I appreciate your notes on how to create a diabetic friendly powdered sugar. The two methods you've listed are extremely useful. It does take more work as a diabetic, to create substitutes that will give you a means to have food that appears and tastes like the foods that others' enjoy daily without a second consideration. Obviously you cannot have or make doughnuts with powdered sugar every day, yet one or two times a week you can use this substitution to spice your diet to appear as those eaten by people who have no care about the nutritional values of the foods they consume.

I personally think the yards of our homes [or balconies/roof tops] truly need to be converted to 'Victory Gardens' like those our grandparents/parents used to feed their families to allow for the mass markets to send meats & vegetables to be processed & sent to our Armed Forces living everyday to fight for our freedoms in WWII. The families at home shopped with food ration stamps for items they had no way to create at home [ie: processed granulated sugar, salt, processed flours, etc.] At home they grew, maintained, and harvested fresh fruits & vegetables. Freezers were not available for private use in the home, so they canned everything that was possible to preserve for future meals in the off season. Times were hard, but everyone had to pull together to do their part as the civilian segment of the American People supporting the Armed Services. By growing their own food, they did not draw down on the amounts of supplies grown by farmers to supply the needed food stuffs to support all those men & Women fighting to win back the Peace. It was an amazing time, and civilian men, women, & children went on maintaining a life for their relatives to come home to. Some times they purchased meat that might have become available for the civilians at the grocery stores. Eggs were usually provided by chickens they maintained in their pens near their gardens. In those days chicken was not available for meals every day. Once a week a Sunday-chicken-in-the-pot might or might not be served. More-often-than-not meals might be based on squirrels, rabbits. fresh caught fish [catfish, trout, herring, etc.] caught in nearby streams. All the children our family had a bamboo fishing pole created for them using local sturdy bamboo, fishing line, bobbers, sinkers, & hooks they were taught how to use them for fishing with the family approximately at 2-3 years old.

My point is that we were healthier having fresh or home grown &/or canned foods to survive on. No chemical drenched foods were offered to us in the stores to use for allegedly 'quick' prep. or snack foods to send to school with our children. When there are 'entertainment' events on the TV, we are encouraged to eat-eat salty snacks, highly sweetened snacks, etc. Fresh, nutritionally sound foods are the rare recommendations rather than chemically loaded items that supply very few sources of vitamins & minerals that our bodies need in-order-to have healthy futures for ourselves and our children's futures.

Good luck to you Dutch. Thank you for the great idea. Also, for the many really good recipes that you share here on JAP. LOL :-)
