Healthy Homemade Sugar Cubes (Sugar Free!)

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Calories per serving: 1

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Add the erythritol to a bowl and add 1 tsp of water at a time, stirring between each addition, until it looks like wet sand/shaved ice/damp snow. Firmly press the mixture into a mini ice cube mold.
  2. Place a cutting board over the ice cube mold. Press the two together and flip it carefully, making sure to keep the mold intact with the cookie sheet.
  3. Gently tap on the mold to loosen the cubes. Let firm up overnight (do not touch!), and they’ll be ready to use in the morning!

Yeahhhh, for an ENTIRE BATCH of 90 sugar cubes that taste exactly the same as the storebought brand, these Homemade Sugar Cubes have just 40 calories, 11g carbs, and 0g sugar.

As a reference, 90 storebought sugar cubes have 900 calories, 225g carbs, and 225g sugar.  That’s shocking.  This DIY recipe has 860 fewer calories and no sugar (so no sugar-rush and sugar-crash, whoop whoop)!

Let’s say you use three cubes in your coffee…  that’s 1.3 calories rather than 30 calories of pure white sugar.  I WIN, mwahaha  🙂

These Homemade Sugar Cubes are definitely the better choice for coffees, teas, hot chocolate and other warm beverages.  Sweeten your day the guilt-free way!

I think I am going to package these into cute little jars (as seen in the first photo) and give them away as gifts for the holidays…  maybe along with some Healthy Homemade Gingersnaps!

  1. Do you leave the mold on them until they harden or do you remove it right away?

    Thank you for another great recipe!!

    • Sarah-
      After I flipped the sugar cubes over onto the sheet of foil I kept the tray over the sugar cubes. Leave it like that overnight. If you live with other people or if you are forgetful (like me) write on a sticky note saying, “DO NOT TOUCH!” and place it near the tray to make sure the cubes survive through the night 😉

  2. DO you think this can be done with granulated splenda or the splenda sugar blend?

    • Anya James-
      Hmmm, I haven’t tried using splenda in this recipe so I can’t be sure. I did some research on the two types of splenda you mentioned. The granulated splenda might work, but the texture of the product is different than erythritol/xylitol so the amount of water you need may vary. The splenda sugar blend is a mixture of both sugar and splenda and is 2x as sweet as regular sugar… this means that your sugar cubes will be super sweet. If you usually use 4 sugar cubes you’ll only need 2. The splenda sugar blend does contain sugar though, so the sugar cubes will no longer be sugar-free.
      Good luck!!

  5. Can you use this recipe with Granulated Sugar instead of the Granulated Erythritol?
