The Best Keto Cranberry Sauce
Cranberries, in small amounts, can be included on a low carb or keto diet, as long as you keep the portion size small!
This healthy, low carb cranberry sauce is made with a monk fruit sweetener and whole cranberries – that’s it!
No turkey dinner should go without cranberries! They are the perfect tangy compliment.
How to Make Cranberry Sauce
Step 1: Add the cranberries, water, and sweetener to a small saucepan. Heat the ingredients over medium heat, until the mixture is simmering. Allow to simmer about 5 minutes, until most of the cranberries have popped.
Step 2: Allow the cranberries to cool. The pectin in the fruit will thicken the mixture as it cools.
Can you Eat Cranberry Sauce on Keto?
Cranberries are a low carb, low sugar fruit. On their own, they aren’t very delicious!
Sweetened with monk fruit sweetener, instead sugar, they are an acceptable side dish on keto.
This recipe does have 7 net carbs per 1/4 cup serving, so enjoy your holiday meal but be sure to keep your servings small!
