Healthy Cranberry Sauce

Prep Time 5 mins Cook Time 10-15 mins Serves 8

Healthy Cranberry Sauce for your holiday table replaces the traditional sugar laden condiment!  This three ingredient sauce cooks in less than 15 minutes!


  • 12 ounce cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Swerve
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Wash Cranberries and set aside.   In a medium saucepan heat the water and Swerve over medium heat until the sweetener dissolves.  Add the cranberries and cook until the berries start to burst and begin to soften (about 10 minutes).  Remove from heat and add orange essential oil and cinnamon until well combined.  Cool in the pan at room temperature, then refrigerate.  


Recipe Notes

Adjust the sweetener to your preference.  You may want to add up to a half cup or more if your berries are sour.  

Food grade citrus oils are much stronger than extracts.  Adjust according to the manufacturer's recommendation.
