Serves: 8

  • 3/4 cup pineapple juice (can substitute orange juice)
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • juice and zest of one orange
  • 3-4 Tablespoons of Agave or to taste (optional, can use stevia to taste as well)


  1. Add cranberries, pineapple juice, applesauce and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Keep on medium heat, stirring constantly until the cranberries start to explode (about 10-15 minutes).
  3. Reduce to a simmer and pour the juice and zest over the cranberry mixture.
  4. Simmer 10-15 minutes and remove from heat.
  5. Store in the fridge at least 4 hours, preferably overnight before serving.
