Homemade Cranberry Sauce - Keto and Low Carb

Homemade cranberry sauce is incredibly easy to make and only takes about 15 minutes!  I add a little orange zest and lemon juice to brighten up the flavors.

  • 12 ounce bag of fresh cranberries
  • 2/3 cup water
  • zest of 1/2 an orange
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup Swerve confectioners


  • Add the water, orange zest and swerve to a saucepan and bring to a simmer.  Add in the cranberries and lemon juice, then simmer on low for 12-15 minutes or until the cranberries burst open. Be sure to stir occasionally. 
  •  If you want your sauce a little more chunky, cook closer to 12 minutes, if you want a smoother sauce, cook closer to 15 minutes. The longer it cooks, the more the cranberries will break down. Mine took exactly 14 minutes, which was perfect for me.
  • Remove from the stovetop, transfer the sauce to a bowl, cover and chill in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
