Low Carb Sugar Free Vanilla Cranberry Sauce Recipe

sugar free vanilla cranberry sauce with holiday dinner

Cranberry sauce is one of those holiday side dishes that people either find absolutely necessary or they could live without. I fall into the former category. I love that sweet and tangy flavor the cranberries provide when I bite into my Thanksgiving turkey. And this cranberry sauce has hints of vanilla in it. Vanilla pairs very well next to savory dishes. It won’t overpower the turkey. Vanilla can enhance the seasonings in the poultry and gravy.

These cranberries are sugar free as well so you can safely enjoy them and stay low carb or keto at the holiday dinner table. The ChocZero Syrup is sweetened with monk fruit. I do have other options for vanilla flavor if you don’t have access to the ChocZero syrup. They are listed down below.

Cranberries on the Keto Diet

rinsing fresh cranberries in a colander You can consume cranberries on the keto diet. One cup of fresh cranberries has 8 g net carbs in it. Usually during the holiday, most people don’t each one cup of cranberries by themselves since it is traditionally used as a garnish or conidment on top of your Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey.

Cranberries have other benefits too! They are high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K. They also contain proanthrocyanidins which are antioxidants.

Vanilla Cranberries

To give this sugar free cranberry sauce a punch of vanilla flavor, I use vanilla syrup by ChocZero. Their syrup is already sweetened so I don’t need to worry about adding addtional sweetener to the cranberries. ChocZero syrups are sweetened with monk fruit instead of sugar alcohols.

If you don’t have access to ChocZero Vanilla Syrup, try doing this instead. Add 1/2 cup monk fruit or erythritol to your cranberries as they are cooking. From here you have two options. You can add a whole, split vanilla bean to the cranberry mixture while it is cooking. Or you can add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract after the cranberries are done cooking.
