I’m always looking for ways to make our holiday healthier. This year, we have been focusing on making all of our favorite holiday recipe as healthy, grain-free, and low-carb as possible without sacrificing flavor. Today, I’m letting you in on how I make keto confectioner’s sugar at home for all of my baking needs. I used some last week when I made my Frosted Keto Christmas Cookies, and I’m so excited to be able to share this with you!
So what you need to turn your regular erythritol into keto confectioner’s sugar is your bag of regular erythritol, a touch of arrowroot powder or cornstarch, and a high-speed blender. This thing is not just amazing for turning my whole produce drawer into a smoothie; it can also make powdered sugar for me!
This is possibly the easiest recipe ever. Seriously – just put everything in your high speed blender, and blend on high for about a minute.
Now, even though it literally only takes seconds to make this keto powdered sugar, you will need to set aside at least 20 minutes for the sugar to ‘settle’. If you take the lid off too soon, the powdered sugar will literally billow out of the top of the blender and coat everything in sight. Trust me.
Low Carb Keto Confectioner's Sugar
- 1-2 cups granulated erythritol
- 1 tbsp arrowroot powder
- Blend together in high speed blender for 1 minute.
- Let sit for 5 minutes before opening.
That’s seriously all there is to it. Now you can feel free to make your low-carb frosting for your Christmas cookies, add it to your homemade whipped cream, and whatever else you can use keto confectioner’s sugar for! I love not having to spend way too much money on pre-made Swerve, because you can make it at home super easily.
It’s light, it’s fluffy, and it’s perfect for baking and cooking. Now it’s much easier to keep your baked goods low-carb and stick to your diets!
Have you ever made keto confectioner’s sugar before?
Have you seen any Keto recipes for the German Springerle cookies?
I have not! But if you send it my way, I may be able to recreate it a bit 🙂

Thanks for sharing this recipe! I have a question, though. Is it 1 or 2 cups of erythritol?
Thanks in advance!
It depends on how much you want to make! The arrowroot is just a buffer to make sure it fluffs well, it doesn’t have to be a certain ratio. ☺️

Do you have a keto friendly recipe for snowball cookies or AKA Danish Wedding Cookies?
I’m sorry- I have never made them before so I have no idea!
Sharon pack says
can i use xanthan gum instead of arrowroot
I would not use xanthan gum but you may be able to sub tapioca powder
Hi. If my recipe says 1/2 cup of powder sugar, how much regular Swerve do I blend?
I’ve always substituted 1:1, so use a half cup!
