Why make your own mayo?

Store bought mayonnaise is FILLED with chemicals that may or may not be linked to all kinds of negative side effects for the human body. That is what got me started on my homemade mayo journey, but what I found out as a added bonus? I can now make my mayo taste EXACTLY how I want it! I always opted for avocado oil, hence this post, where most are made with seed oils. It also allows me to add salt and pepper, and dijon mustard than the regular kind you can find in the store. So pretty to sum it up: Homemade is safest and tastiest!

How to make Homemade Mayo with Avocado Oil

It’s WAY easier than you think, and pretty much the only thing you need that you probably don’t already have is an immersion blender. This is the immersion blender I use, and I LOVE it (also great for making smooth soups)!

Check out this video showing how to make Homemade Mayo with Avocado oil!

In a 16 oz wide mouth jar, crack the whole egg, and then add your dijon mustard, salt, pepper and lemon juice. You can put any additional add ins at this time as well, like sriracha or miso paste! Let those sit together for a minute or so, then pour 1/2 cup of avocado oil on top.

Place your immersion blender straight down into the glass all the way to the bottom. Start blending at a medium speed and you’ll see it start to emulsify at the bottom and turn white. At that point you can drizzle the rest of your olive oil in at a slow speed and let the immersion blender blend everything into the perfect consistency. Remove the blender and give it a good stir. Place a air tight top on it and keep in the fridge for a week!

FAQs + Tips

Can I use olive oil?

Yes, of course! I only use avocado oil for lots of reasons – less flavor and health reasons – but you can absolutely replace it 1:1 in this recipe!

How long does this last?

About a week in the fridge. The good and bad thing about homemade stuff is that there are no preservatives to keep it good for a long time. To me, that’s a plus! Our food should go bad at some point, lol.

What are some good add ins?

I already add in dijon mustard, sea salt and pepper, but sometimes I add miso paste for an umami bomb! You can also add hot sauce or sriracha, smokey salt I mean the list goes on and on!
