Ingredient Notes

There are only 4 other ingredients in this healthy keto cranberry sauce: cranberries, water, a pinch of salt + orange zest. Do not skip the orange zest, it gives it the most amazing flavor!

Recipe Step by Step

  1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the cranberries, water, monk fruit + salt. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil.
  2. When it begins boiling, reduce to a simmer. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. No need to smash the cranberries, they will burst on their own.
  3. When the sauce is thickened, remove it from heat. (If it accidentally thickened too much, just add more water!)
  4. Add in the orange zest and stir. Cool to room temperature.

Expert Tips

Sweetener: You have 2 options here for sweetener. For keto, use monk fruit, which is 0 net carbs. For whole30, use date paste, which is whole30 compliant. Both are great options for a natural sweetener.

Sweet or Tart: I like my cranberry sauce lightly sweet. If you like yours sweeter, add in more monk fruit or date paste!

Not Keto: You can really use any sweetener in the same amounts if not keeping it whole30 + keto: honey, maple syrup, white sugar, etc.

FAQs

Is this keto cranberry sauce also Whole30 Compliant?

Yes, cranberry is Whole30 compliant! While it is a fruit, it is low in natural sugars. I like to buy organic cranberries to have the highest quality.
