Is this a Weight Watchers Freestyle recipe? How many points per serving?

You bet it is! My Weight Watchers cranberry sauce is a healthy alternative to the canned stuff and with just 2 Freestyle Smart Points per serving you can enjoy this recipe without any guilt!

How did you figure out the points for this Weight Watchers Cranberry Relish?

I always use the Weight Watchers online recipe creator to analyze my recipes and be sure that they’re as accurately calculated as possible. You can input all the ingredients and the servings per batch and the system does the rest.

For this recipe all of the points come from the sugar! If you wanted to make this recipe “free” or zero points you could try swapping the sugar for stevia. Make sure to calculate the ratio because stevia is much sweeter than regular sugar and will take far less to give you the same result.

Make sure you calculate the points for yourself if you change any ingredients or amounts.
