Sugar-Free Cranberry Sauce Recipe #MySillyLittleGang

If there’s one thing that I love year-round it’s cranberry sauce. Ever since I had surgery I’ve had to go sugar-free. Here is the sugar-free cranberry sauce recipe that I indulge in. Trust me, it’s just as good as the sugar-filled one.

My boys think it’s hilarious that I love eating cranberry sauce year-round. They think I should only indulge during the holidays. But what can I say it’s just one of those things that I absolutely can’t do without.

Back in 2017, I had to forgo refined sugars in preparation for my gastric surgery. So that Thanksgiving I had to miss out on my beloved cranberry sauce. It has been two Thanksgivings that I have missed it dearly. That’s why in March of this year I started planning to come up with a sugar-free version.

I was lucky enough to find frozen cranberries to aid me. I also made this recipe with fresh cranberries once they were available and it came out just as delicious. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

Sugar-Free Cranberry Sauce

Makes 6 servings ~ 1/4 cup each serving


12 oz Cranberries

1 cup Powdered erythritol

3/4 cup Water

1/2 tsp Vanilla extract

1 tsp Orange extract (optional; add more if you like more orange flavor)


Combine the cranberries, water, and powdered erythritol in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a gentle simmer.

Simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the cranberries pop and a sauce forms.

Remove from heat. Stir in both of the extracts.


I use powdered erythritol because it helps keep this sugar-free cranberry sauce longer without crystallizing. However, you can use any sweetener you prefer. If your sauce gets too crystalized just heat it up before enjoying it.
