KETO CRANBERRY SAUCE makes the perfect addition to your holiday dinner. Made with fresh cranberries and natural sweeteners, this low carb cranberry sauce is ready in minutes.
I’m curious…did you grow up in a ‘homemade cranberry sauce’ house or a ‘can of cranberry jelly sliced into rounds’ house?
We were the sliced jelly rounds house when I was a kid. I literally never even tasted cranberry sauce until I was an adult, becuase…no. Those oddly jiggly rounds of jelly just were not appetizing to me as a kid.But now? I looooove cranberry sauce and when I started eating low carb, I was happy to see how easy it is to make keto cranberry sauce.
Anyone else planning on making a leftover turkey sandwich on a chaffle? I like to add cranberry sauce to mine!

I use and love Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener…it’s a blend of monkfruit and erythritol and it leaves no aftertaste and has no affect on blood sugar.
I love Lakanto so much that I asked them for a discount code for my readers. Use code THATLOWCARBLIFE at to get 20% off your order!
- Add all of the ingredients to a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
- Simmer until berries pop open.
- Refrigerate to thicken sauce before serving.
Tips and Tricks:
Be sure to use the powdered sweetener to prevent your sauce from crystallizing.
Traditional cranberry sauce is made with orange juice instead of water. By swapping in water and adding orange zest, you still get that citrus flavor without all of the sugar. Feel free to swap in a bit of orange juice for the water, if you don’t mind the extra carbs.
The cinnamon is optional, but we love the warm, cozy vibes it gives the cranberry sauce.
