Article by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites

One cup of raw cranberries contains about 46 calories.

One can of the sauce contains about 600 calories, so be very cautious when dipping into the cranberry sauce while dieting.  

Homemade Recipes

But don't despair! Make your own Slim Cranberry Sauce by cooking fresh cranberries, then adding Splenda. To thicken, add a bit of cornstarch mixed with water.

A raw cranberry relish can be made by grinding up fresh cranberries with a variety of sweet fruits.
