Low Carb Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce Recipe

I don’t know about you but I love a side of tangy cranberry sauce next to my turkey on Thanksgiving dinner. Traditional cranberry sauces are sweetened with sugar or syrups, but this keto holiday recipe for cranberries uses erythritol or monk fruit as a sweetener - making this a sugar free cranberry sauce.

You could stop there and just have sweet and tangy cranberry sauce, but I went a step further and added some spice. One minced jalapeno adds a little heat to this keto cranberry sauce. The combination is fabulous, especially when spread all over the roated turkey!

Cranberries are high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K. They also contain proanthrocyanidins which are antioxidants.

Spicy Cranberries

I love adding spicy flavors to my holiday dishes. I must have horseradish with my prime rib and a spicy cranberry sauce with my turkey. If you love spicy foods too, you will love this low carb cranberry sauce.
