Did you know that the VitaMix can make Fresh Powdered Sugar in less than 60 seconds from White Sugar or Evaporated Cane Juice?

Since I rarely cook with Sugar I don’t have much need to keep Powdered Sugar on hand.  But for those few times when a special recipe calls for it, I whip out my trusty VitaMix!

Here’s a quick video tutorial & recipe on how to do it.

Fresh Powdered Sugar in the VitaMix

All ingredients I used in the video were Organic.



  1. Place the Sugar into the VitaMix
  2. Give the Sugar a quick blend Starting at Variable Speed 1, Working your way quickly to Variable Sped 10, and on to High.
  3. After you start to see the Sugar crush into powder, stop the VitaMix and give the Sugar a quick stir with the blunt edge of a knife or spatula.  This will make sure that everything is blended evenly.
  4. Repeat the blending steps again, until you see the Powder Sugar puffing up inside the container.
  5. Store any unused Powdered Sugar in an airtight container.

Yields:  Approximately 1 Cup of Powdered Sugar

Preparation & Cooking Time: Less than 2 Minutes.

    Just the answer I was looking for when I discovered no confectioners sugar last night and quests were coming in an hour. Thanks! It worked perfectly.

    Was the texture of the powdered sugar you made in the VitaMix same as store bought powdered sugar? I tried to make it in other blenders and the powdered sugar had a gritty texture.
