  • 12 ounces whole cranberries fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup powdered erythritol sweetener
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange zest (about 1 orange)


  • If using granulated erythritol, blend in a small blender for a few seconds until it reaches a powdered consistency. I use a Nutribullet.
  • Add erythritol and water to a saucepot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Add cranberries to the pot, stirring with the liquid. Bring back to a boil, and reduce to medium heat.
  • Cook until the cranberries have split open and the sauce reaches your desired consistency, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add orange zest, stirring well for a minute. Serve immediately while warm.
