Sugar Free Glaze Recipe




Time 5m

Today we want to show you how to prepare a sugar free glaze with the natural sweetener erythritol so that you can garnish your mouthwatering sweet creations without loading them with sugars.

Classic icing is made with refined powdered sugar and, although it tastes delicious, it's not so good for your health. In fact, white sugar quickly raises blood sugar levels which eventually leads to weight gain.

Erythritol, instead, is a sugar alcohol that occurs naturally in fruit but has zero-sugar and zero calories, making it the perfect sugar alternative without side effects.

This sugar free icing is vegan and gluten-free and, as it has no carbs and is prepared with coconut oil, it works great as a keto glaze icing.

Your sugar-free glaze is ready to be used for all your sweet creations, like doughnuts or cookies icing


  • Squeeze a few drops of lemon juice into the sugar-free glaze to prevent it from browning and to infuse it with a delicious lemon flavour.

  • Instead of vanilla extract you can use almond or orange essence.

  • You can replace almond milk with other plant-based milks like coconut, soy or oat milk.

  • We recommend you use the prepared icing right away as it will quickly set and dry out if you store it away.
