For anyone who doesn’t already know, erythritol is a wonderful natural sweetener that has no glycemic impact on our bodies. It might only be 70% as sweet as sugar, but most of the time low-carb/keto recipes don’t have to be as sweet as their regular carb counterparts to be just as satisfying and tasty.
Making your own powdered erythritol is much easier than you think. Instead of having to constantly buy products like Swerve Sweetener or having to keep both granulated and powdered erythritol on hand, you can simply buy the granulated form and powder your own.
To do this, you will only need two items; a coffee grinder and granulated erythritol. They are both easy to grab from Amazon. Almost all of our dessert recipes call for erythritol as their sweetener. We choose and recommend erythritol because it is all-natural and contains no added ingredients.
It is sweet to the taste as it is eaten, then it is filtered out by our bodies and excreted in our urine. Erythritol has no effect on blood sugar and unless it is eaten in large quantities. It also has no laxative effect like other sugar alcohols such as maltitol.
Directions for Powdering Erythritol
- Measure the needed amount of erythritol in a measuring cup or spoon
- Pour into your coffee grinder
- Pulse the coffee grinder until the mixture has turned from granules to powder
- Shake the grinder before opening
- Pour the powdered erythritol directly from the grinder into the mixture
*Keep in mind that powdered erythritol and granulated erythritol will not measure the same, but powdered will result in a sweeter taste that actually mixes with other ingredients
