  • In a large saucepan, combine water and granulated monk fruit sweetener and heat over medium until sugars are dissolved.
  • Add cranberries and your 2 large pieces of orange rind (optional). Bring to a boil over medium high heat. You will hear cranberries begin to "pop". Reduce heat to medium­ low so that the cranberry mixture retains a simmer. Stir every minute or so to ensure even heating.
  • Simmer for 20­ - 25 minutes until mixture is thickened. Turn off heat and remove pan from any hot heating surface.
  • Slowly stir in almond extract, liquid stevia and 6 drops of Young Living's Orange or Tangerine oil (optional)
  • Taste test once cooled and stir in additional stevia drops if more sweetener is needed for your family's tastes. We like ours slightly tart!
  • Let cool and store in a GLASS container for up to 1 week in your refrigerator.


This recipe is fairly flexible I tend to under sweeten to begin with as I've had it turn out too sweet.  If you need to sweeten it a little more once it is already finished, just add a few more stevia drops and stir in.


For Orange or Tangerine Young Living Essential Oil -- DO NOT USE ANY OTHER  BRAND. ­­ALWAYS READ LABELS and check for Do Not Ingest or Do Not Take Internally
Young Living Essential Oils are the only one's we trust to take internally. I would not recommend any other brand currently on the market.
