Sugar Free Royal Icing
Most of the time following Trim Healthy Mama you will find creamy frosting recipes for all your cookies and cakes. I enjoy making Coconut Flour Rolled Sugar Cookies for my grandson and decorating them with this Sugar Free Royal Icing.
I used to use a traditional Royal icing when my kids were young, and have taken multiple cookie and cake decorating classes so that we could do all the fun stuff. This Sugar Free Royal Icing is best when it has been thinned so that it flows over the cookies and hardens into a glaze.
- 1 cup Pyure all purpose stevia sweetener (ground and sifted), you can also use THM Gentle Sweet
- 1 tbs + 1 tsp egg whites (pasteurized)
- ½ tsp cream of tartar
- Using an electric mixer on low, combine confectioners' sweetener, sifted, egg whites, and cream of tartar; beat on high until icing is whipped and opaque, about 2 minutes.
- Thin with water as needed to make a stiff but spreadable icing.
You need to powder the sweetener in a coffee grinder or blender for it to be a smooth icing texture
Personally, I like to use erythritol to make this icing as it is not quite as sweet as regular sugar and doesn’t have an after taste.
I don’t typically use xylitol in my home (we have 2 dogs) but because it is a 1:1 conversion with sugar it could also be used without a funky after taste, however please be aware that Xylitol is extremely toxic to household pets.
