The Holidays have officially arrived! We hope you enjoy a happy and healthy season!
Staying on track during this time can be challenging. Having trouble resisting holiday temptations? Just remember to keep portion sizes in check, stay hydrated, and increase your fiber intake! Why? Because when you’re adequately hydrated and getting enough fiber, it helps balance blood sugars, curb snack cravings, and helps you feel fuller longer!
Cooking with just better.®️ prebiotic fiber is a great way to reach your high-fiber goals while reducing the sugar in your favorite holiday recipes.
Cranberry sauce is a favorite, but most recipes require a lot of sugar. This year, try it with a fiber boost and half the sugar!
The best part is just better.®️ prebiotic fiber will help tone down those tart flavor notes and add healthy all-natural fiber to your holiday cranberry dish. Cool, right?!
just better.®️ Fiber Up Cranberry Sauce
12 oz. Fresh Cranberries
¾ cup water
½ Cup Sugar
¼ Cup just better.®️ Fiber
2 Tablespoons of orange juice
1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
Rinse cranberries, thoroughly drain any excess water, and remove damaged berries.
In a medium saucepan, combine the cranberries, sugar, and cinnamon, just better.® Prebiotic Fiber, and water.
Place the saucepan on medium-high heat and let the mixture come to a boil.
Reduce the heat to medium-low and stir occasionally.
Continue to cook until the cranberries have popped and the mixture has reached a sauce-like consistency (About 5 to 10 minutes.)
Remove the saucepan from the heat, and add orange zest, cinnamon, and orange juice.
The sauce will thicken naturally as it cools. Serve right away or refrigerate for up to a week.
Before serving, we like to fold gently in canned, drained, or fresh mandarin oranges. You can also garnish with chopped walnuts or pecans.
Enjoy; and Happy Holidays!
