Sugar Free Naturally Sweetened Cranberry Sauce Recipe

cranberry sauce

I love cranberry’s and used to have cranberry juice all the time. However since I’ve given up refined sugar and artificial sweeteners I rarely have anything cranberry, until now.

Cranberries are too bitter on their own so need some sweetness, here I opt for dates and orange juice.

As you can see from the photo the resulting sauce is thick and very dark.

This cranberry sauce healthy recipe is fresh and doesn’t contain any sugar it should be refrigerated and consumed within 3 days.
