Cranberry-Date Sauce

cranberry sauce

No need to use sugar in your cranberry sauce this year! Dates are a wholesome and delicious replacement.


  • 5 -10 pitted dates**
  • 1.5 cups orange juice
  • 8 oz cranberries

It’s best to let dates soak in the orange juice for at least 30 minutes to soften them. Blend dates and juice together.

Put all ingredients together in a pot, bring to a boil, and then lower heat to a simmer until sauce is thickened.

I like to smash my cranberries with a potato masher. Mash or leave whole, as you like.


**I don’t like a very sweet cranberry sauce, so I use 5 dates.
