I got the “sugar free” confectioners sugar (powdered sugar) substitute from this video on YouTube and it works great! If diabetic or just watching your sugar intake, this is a perfect substitute. I highly recommend it!
Sugar Free Confectioners Sugar
1 cup granulated Splenda (or other sugar substitute that measures cup for cup)
1 cup cornstarch
1 cup powdered milk
yield: 1- 3/4 cup sugar free powdered sugar
Blend or food process to powdered sugar consistency and store in airtight container.
If you need a sugar free version for a glaze, that recipe substituted in this recipe for cream cheese glaze is just the ticket! My late husband LOVED it!
Cream Cheese Glaze
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar or substitute
3 – 4 tablespoons choice of: milk, cream, half n half, evaporated milk, brandy, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Rum, champagne, Orange juice or concentrate, lemon juice… be creative! — plus extra if needed for thinning
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or substitute almond, orange, lemon, rum, or other extracts as desired)
Whisk together until smooth. If too thick add more of the chosen liquid (milk, cream, OJ, brandy, etc.) to thin — just 1 tsp at a time until desired consistency.
I use OJ concentrate when glazing orange rolls, milk or cream for cinnamon rolls, and Bailey’s Irish Cream or other flavors for various muffins, doughnuts, cakes, cupcakes, pastries, etc.
You can then top with orange or lemon zest, candied orange or lemon peel, nuts, etc. sprinkled on top if desired. Run dried banana chips through the food processor and then sprinkle over glaze topped banana breads or muffins.
