Atkins Diet Cranberry Sauce

The final piece on our Thanksgiving recipes is here. Yup the final piece is cranberry sauce but like the other sweet things in Atkins Diet this one is going to be sugar free.Yes you heard me right its sugar free.

Like other sweet sugar free recipes we use sugar substitute instead of real sugar. Another big plus the the use of fresh cranberries instead of the prepackaged ones. The good thing about cranberries is, it is a natural antioxidant so it can clean the body. Now without further delay here is the recipe for sugar free cranberry sauce.

1 bag of fresh cranberries (12 oz)
1 C “sweetening power” from artificial sweetener of your choice
1 C water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Put cranberries in a pot on the stove, and pick through to remove soft and/or brown ones.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients, stir, and bring to a boil on medium-high heat.
3. Stir frequently – the cranberries will pop, and then release their “gel” – and the sauce will come together like magic. Cook until it’s the consistency you want – 5-10 minutes.

Makes 8 servings of approximately 1/4 Cup. Each has 3 grams of effective carbohydrate and almost 2 grams of fiber.
