How to Make Powdered Sugar
If you need powdered sugar for a recipe and you don't have any on hand, you can easily make your own using granulated sugar and a blender! You will also save money by making your own powdered sugar. Making powdered sugar is cheap and convenient! How sweet!
Step 1:┬á PULL OUT YOUR BLENDER -- Get your blender out and make sure it is clean and absolutely DRY! If you wash the blender, take it apart and make sure you dry every piece then put it back together. You do not want even a drop of water in the blender.
Step 2:┬á GRAB YOUR SUGAR AND MEASURE IT -- Get your bag of granulated sugar. You can also use fine granulated sugar. Measure out 1 or 2 cups of sugar and make sure there are no clumps. Put the sugar in the blender. Do not put more than 2 cups of sugar in the blender at a time. If you need more powdered sugar it's best to make several small batches.
Step 3:┬á BLEND YOUR SUGAR -- If your blender has a pulse button, use it.┬á If not, just push blend then stop, blend then stop. When you stop the blender, take the cover off and use a spoon or a spatula to push the sugar away from the sides of the blender. Then blend again. After just a few blends your granulated sugar will turn into powdered sugar just like the confectioner's sugar you buy at the store! Measure it and use it as you would any confectioner's sugar.
