I have never been a cranberry fan until Matt made this Healthy Cranberry Sauce! Now, i'll be stuffing my face this year with turkey, low carb rolls, pecan pie and this cranberry sauce! It's also a really simple recipe you can make days in advance if you want to get it out of the way before the big preparations begin on the actual day of Thanksgiving! Just because you're on a ketogenic or low carb diet does not mean you shouldn't be able to indulge in your favorite Thanksgiving foods!
My Favorite Thanksgiving Cranberry Sauce!
If you weren't around last year, you may have missed out on all the holiday recipes we made. We had pies and side dishes galore. We even had a cranberry relish recipe, but we think this is 100x better and will be loved by everyone at the dinner table! Maybe you're not a cranberry person, and that is totally alright because we have many more low carb holiday recipe options, such as our low carb green bean casserole, cauliflower mash and keto gravy, and pumpkin pie cheesecake! Not impressed? Well, we've got a bunch more great holiday recipes in line for you this year so keep checking back because you won't want to miss out!
Who Doesn't Want To Make An Easy Cranberry Sauce?
When the holidays approach you start to see lights strung throughout stores, coffee cups change to holiday colors and people start to smile a little more. However, the actual day of Thanksgiving and Christmas can be quite the opposite. It's not always fun gathering with family and distant relatives, sharing in drinks and a laboring meal that one or a couple people have prepared. Whether or not you are hosting the holiday dinner I think you'll be happy to know that this cranberry sauce recipe is easy to make in advance and allows you to not only indulge in a sugar free cranberry sauce at dinner, but have more time to make positive memories with family and friends!
Healthy Cranberry Sauce
As I already mentioned, cranberry sauce has never been my thing. And, those who do love it are obsessed with it. I have friends that refuse to have Thanksgiving without the cranberry sauce. Even when Matt completed the recipe and took beautiful pictures I was hesitant to try it, but to my and his surprise I was impressed. I even went in for seconds! Maybe I'd been missing out on cranberry sauce all these years or maybe this healthy cranberry sauce is going to be your new favorite holiday recipe!
