One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is relaxing, being grateful and enjoying time with friends and family. Of course I also enjoy the food, and for me it’s all about the cranberry sauce! So I say forget the canned-berries and pick up some fresh cranberries this year to amaze your family and friends with this delicious recipe!


  • 8 oz Cranberries, Whole
  • 1 Orange, remove peel (after removing zest)
  • Zest of 1 Orange
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Apple, small, remove core and seeds
  • 4 Dates, Medjool, remove pit
  • 1 Tbsp Honey, raw unpasterized (or more as needed)
  • Water as needed
  • Pinch of Cinnamon


  • Blend everything in a food processor, add water as needed to create your perfect consistency.
  • Adjust honey and cinnamon to taste!

Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
