Making your own cranberry sauce is super simple and you can even make it raw if you skip the simmering and blend up the berries with apple cider juice, a little bit of sweetener and cinnamon.

I love using this sauce as a dipping sauce for celery sticks or as a sauce for zucchini noodles.


  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup apple cider juice
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup or 2 pitted dates
  • 1 dash of cinnamon


  1. Add all ingredients into a pot and let it simmer for 5-10 minutes. Use a lid as the cranberries will pop up .
  2. Pour the berries into the blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Serve as a dipping sauce, use as salad dressing or as a sauce for zoodles/coodles.
