Looking for a keto-friendly Thanksgiving cranberry sauce recipe that is easy and flavorful? Look no further.

Cranberry sauce is one of my all-time favorite condiments even when it’s not holiday season! Typically though a serving of traditional cranberry sauce can contain upwards of 22 grams of sugar, that’s crazy.

This keto cranberry sauce has a tiny fraction of that and is spiced with fresh oranges and spices like clove and cinnamon.

Serve this healthy low-carb cranberry sauce with your holiday meal and I guarantee no one will be able to tell the difference. It’s perfect on your holiday turkey but I even love it on taco bowls, trust me. A bit of cauliflower rice with grilled steak, squash, and kale this makes a perfect “harvest” style bowl you will love!

This is delicious. It’s tart, but in a good way.

Fabulous recipe! I added chopped walnuts because my keto heart thought there should be some fat involved.  My only regret is that I made it two days before Thanksgiving and I don’t know if there will be any left for dinner.

I say make another batch! 😊 I like the idea of adding chopped walnuts for healthy fats!
