How to make sugar free icing for cookies

By Ambra Torelli (

Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that despite having no calories retains 70% of the sweetness of sugar and it has the same exact consistency! It crystallises beautifully and it allows you to create a crunchy icing to add flavour to your cookies!

The quantities you’ll find in this sugar free icing recipe are purposely small because they are meant for dividing the glaze into three different flavors… and  I only had 11 cookies to glaze!

If you need to make more take a look at the video and you’ll see how easy it is to adjust the quantities according to the number of cookies you need your sugar free icing for.

For the Orange Sugar Free Icing:
  • 1/4 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Erythritol
  • ¼ tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp grated Orange Zest
  • 1 tsp Orange Juice
For the Coffee Sugar Free Icing:
  • 1/4 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 ½ tbsp Erythritol
  • 1 tsp Dandelion Coffee

  • 1 tsp Water
For the Matcha Sugar Free Icing:
  • 1/4 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 ½ tbsp Erythritol
  • ¼ tsp Matcha Green Tea

  1. Gently melt the coconut oil over a bain marie.

  3. Stir all the ingredients together in a bowl until smooth.
  4. Spread on your biscuits, or drizzle on cakes!
