How to Make Diabetic Friendly-Sugar Free Powdered Sugar
- 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
