Prep time: 5 min • Yield: 1 cup
- 1 cup unrefined coconut sugar
- 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
- Blend sugar and arrowroot powder in a blender or food processor. Blend for about 2-3 minutes until sugar is soft and powdery. Store dry in an airtight container. Use just as you would use confectioner’s or powdered sugar in your baking.
Notes: As you make the powdered sugar, it will look like a sandstorm in your blender. Optionally put through a fine wire sieve before using to obtain a smoother consistency.
Arrowroot is a large perennial herb that grows in rainforests. It is cultivated for the starch obtained from its rhizome roots. It is a thickening agent that can be used as a one-for-one replacement for cornstarch. It is flavorless, so it perfect for a thickener in cooking and baking. It is also the easiest starch to digest. In gluten free baking it creates a lighter and softer texture to baked goods.
