Low Carb Cranberry Sauce Cream Cheese Spread


Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 cup granulated Swerve, more to taste (get it here)
  • 2 tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • a few springs of fresh mint, optional

Instructions

  1. Put the cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl and allow to soften. Use a hand mixer to whip. If the cream cheese has had enough time to soften, you can also just whip it with a fork.
  2. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, combine cranberries, Swerve, orange juice, and orange zest.
  3. Allow the berries to simmer until they begin to pop and the sauce starts to thicken. About 20 minutes.
  4. Once most of the berries have popped, reduce the heat to low and let the sauce continue to thicken for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Fold the cranberry sauce into the whipped cream cheese.
  6. Top with fresh mint.
