Xylitol Powdered Sugar

Although I’ve substituted cane sugar out of my diet as much as possible in my baking, I still have been using traditional powdered sugar (until today). I love coconut cream whipped with powdered sugar. I’ve given up dairy, but I won’t give up whipped cream!

I used my Vitamix to make xyilitol Powdered Sugar, and it worked! I’m going to use it to make Chocolate Wafer Cookies & Ice Box Cake and Banana Chocolate Boston Cream Cake (Vegan and Gluten Free) too.

What is xylitol? It’s sugar derived from a birch tree. I’ve talked about its benefits in this post about Vegan Broccoli Carrot Slaw With Cranberry Dressing. It’s ideal for low carb & sugar controlled diets. I bought the XyloBurst Brand at swansonvitamins.com.



  • 1½ cups xylitol (you can also use coconut sugar too!)
  • 1 Tbsp Arrowroot (to make it more like processed cane sugar).

FYI – Xylitol is very sweet, you don’t have to use as much as regular powdered sugar to get the sweetness you desire; you will need to play around with it while baking.


  • Put the xylitol and arrowroot in the Vitamix, and blend for 30 seconds, until it’s blended to an even consistency.
  • Store in a plastic bag or glass container.new xylitol cover.jpgIMG_1455.JPG
