So I’ve been dabbling with a low carb diet for a while now, and I’ve had in my mind the list of “appropriate” low carb, keto foods for a couple years. You know… most meats, some full-fat dairy, plenty of non-starchy veggies, all the leafy greens and a few nuts and berries in moderation. 

But berries. Did you know there is a huge difference in the number of carbs in berries? I’m a little embarrassed to admit I didn’t. I don’t eat many of them, and I usually go for blueberries when I do because they are more cost-efficient, last longer and seem to have a truer flavor at the supermarket than the other options in our area.

But what about cranberries?

Cranberries have about 8 grams of net carbs per cup, whereas blueberries have about 18 grams according to Carb Manager. This is a huge difference when you’re aiming to stay under 20 grams of net carbs per day!

If you’re like me, you might only think about cranberries around Thanksgiving and Christmas. I usually buy a few bags toward the end of the season so I can freeze them and enjoy some cranberry sauce and cranberry Moscow mules out of season. They aren’t available in my area outside of the Thanksgiving and Christmas. I was provided a bag of these fresh-frozen Cape Cod Select Cranberries in exchange for creating this recipe, and I was super-impressed to find they arrived still frozen. – Individually frozen and not stuck together. – They are larger with a firmer texture and and more flavor than the normal cranberries I buy at the supermarket during our fall and winter too. You can order your own Cape Cod Select Cranberries online here.

They are wonderful added to low carb, keto baked goods along with some low carb sweetener. I also love snacking on them raw, and they are great in glazes, sauces, salsas and dressings. My favorite right this minute is in tacos. Yes, you heard me right! I put cranberries in some spicy chipotle Instant Pot shredded taco chicken, and I am in love.

    I made this a couple days ago and it was SO amazing!!! Although, I did cook it using my cast iron skillet instead of the Insta pot. I don’t get cranberries outside of the winter holidays either and I am thankful I have one bag left! I have made the coleslaw without the cranberries and turned out delicious! Thank you so much for these recipes- I shared your post with my friends!

      Thank you for sharing! That sounds perfect. I prefer cooking chicken on the stovetop to the Instant Pot anyway. More flavor and no worries about overcooking!
