The perfect combination of sweet and tart. Even non-cranberry eaters would like this. Serve this with turkey, or it’s even great with pork.  Make this the night before!

You might also like my chunkier Cranberry Pear Sauce for the holidays where I use agave or honey instead of sugar. Or my slow cooker Cran- Pear Butter if you have extra fruit and is perfect for leftovers! I love using this the day after Thanksgiving on a turkey leftover sandwich.

  1. Maybe someone has already given you an edited version without sugar of the Pineapple-Cranberry Sauce.  I use 0.6 oz. sugar-free Jello of any red flavor, 1 20-oz. can crushed pineapple in its natural juice (d not drain), 1/2-cup water, 1-lb.of cranberries.  Place cranberries in medium saucepan, add pineapple with juice, add sugar-free Jello choice, and add 1/2-cup water.  Bring to boil, with lid covering, simmer until some of the berries pop, Add 1/2-teaspoon of lemon or lime juice.   Set aside until cooled before placing in a blender/Vitamix.  Turn on blender/Vitamix for about 45 seconds until well liquified.  Pour into single storage container and chill for about three hours, or pour into single dessert cups and chill in refrigerator until serving time.  A friend of mine added that she placed individual cups in the freezer to lightly freeze into a gelato texture.  I haven’t tried that yet.  

  2. Your recipe here is wonderful! I made it for Thanksgiving and changed the sugar to Monkfruit sweetener.  I found this recipe to be bright and light in flavor and texture. Thank you. Do you have any hard copy recipe books with the WW smart points? I’d love to buy one, I still like using recipe books!

    • Yes, I have a few cookbooks- you can find them on Amazon or bookstores. The points however are listed in this site, under the cookbook tab. 🙂
