How to Make Keto Cranberry Sauce

Thanks to ZenSweet Monk Fruit Sweetener, it’s simple to make cranberry sauce using just 1 substitution from your favorite recipe.

Step 1: Add cranberries, water, and monk fruit sweetener to a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium high heat. Allow the mixture to cook (no need to even stir!) until most of the cranberries have popped, which will take about 3 minutes.

Step 2: Allow to cool. The pectin in the cranberries will help the sauce thicken and gel up.
