  1. Pour granulated sugar into a blender or other food processor.

  2. Add a tablespoon of optional arrowroot or nonGMO corn starch to prevent clumping if you intend to make a large batch and store in the pantry.

  3. Turn on the blender to high speed for about 30 seconds. You may need to switch it off, open the lid, stir, and repeat if all the sugar did not get powderized during that time.

  4. Pour the powdered sugar into a small bowl. Sift it first before using to make it extra lightweight.
