This is perfect for your Thanksgiving or holiday dinner and easy to make. My Keto Cranberry sauce can be made weeks in advance and used in low carb desserts too!
Quite frankly no one even needs to know that you switched out the heavy sugar stuff. This high sugar Thanksgiving staple can be swapped out with this low sugar version.
We have always had two varieties of CANNED cranberry sauce at the holiday table. One child insists on jellied sauce with the can marks. My other daughter and I love the chunky whole cranberry sauce.
What I did NOT know was that one serving of the canned stuff is about 30g of carbs.
Canned stuff is 30g carbs for 1 serving!
Yep, that’s right. For about 1/4 cup of traditional or canned cranberry sauce you will be adding 30g of carbs to your meal. And that’s if you only take ONE serving.
Let’s get real…no one has just one serving of anything at a Holiday meal. Even if you have other carbs on your plate you are mitigating the damage by using Keto Cranberry sauce as your substitute.
The Sweetener of choice
Please know that you can use powdered erythritol for this Keto Cranberry sauce if that’s your sweetener of choice.
Allulose is the best option for low carb sweetener on this Keto Cranberry Sauce. However, other low carb sweeteners will work in this recipe. Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener Classic would be my first choice after the allulose.
The trick would be to powder the granular sweetener before you add to the cranberries. Granular low carb sweetener tends to re-crystalize upon cooling.
If you decided to try extracts I would suggest using 1 tsp of dissolved gelatin to help the Keto Cranberry Sauce jell once cooled.
Try These Desserts
Make a double batch of this Keto Cranberry sauce. I like to save it in the freezer for months. It stores and thaws beautifully to be used any time of the year.

Keto Cranberry Sauce
- In a heavy bottom large sauce pan over medium heat combine cranberries, allulose and water. Bring to a rapid simmer and add orange rind.
- Continue to stir for 3-4 minutes. Cranberries will start to pop.
- Turn heat to low and continue to simmer for 10-15 minutes. Stir occasionally and sauce will begin to thicken. Add orange extract if using.
- Once sauce has come to desired consistency remove from heat and let cool. Store in air tight container in fridge for up to 2 weeks or freezer for several months.

My Beautycounter Side Gig
I’m a Beautycounter devotee and I truly love this company and their products, hence my Beautycounter Side Gig. I love their mission, their products and their affordable pricing for high-quality, safer products.
I’m super careful about what I put into my body by selecting and eating healthy food, so it’s kind of silly I haven’t been more careful about what I put into my body through the skincare products I use. Not anymore.
