At the heart of every Thanksgiving meal are some of the healthiest and most wholesome foods. Sweet potatoes, cranberries, green beans, pumpkin, and even the turkey become fodder for a calorie-fest when we smother them in sugar, butter, and even marshmallows. Chef Aida Mollenkamp has taken our favorite traditional recipes and made them over for Biggest Loser, giving us all the seasonal flavors we love without the fat and calories we won't even miss.

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins

  • 12 ounces fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 4 tbsp honey or agave nectar
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 medium oranges, peeled and segmented


  1. Combine all ingredients except the orange segments in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat then reduce to low and simmer, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

  2. Stir in oranges, season with kosher salt and pepper, let cool, and serve at room temperature or cold.

(Can be made up to 5 days in advance and stored refrigerated in an airtight container.)
