If you’re looking for a healthy homemade swap for store-bought mayonnaise, you have to try this easy avocado oil mayo recipe. It’s easy to make, and it’s also paleo and whole30 compliant. If you’ve been experimenting with making healthier versions of store-bought condiments, sauces, and more, it’s about time you try this easy avocado oil mayo recipe!
Made with avocado oil, this homemade mayo is a great healthy swap for the regular stuff, which is filled with seed and soybean oils. Avocado oil is mild in flavor, relatively inexpensive, and has a high smoke point. This means you can easily use your finished avocado oil mayo in cooked recipes, as well as your favorite sandwiches and salad dressings.
I love this avocado oil recipe because I can use it as a starting point for so many of my favorite dressing recipes like my Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, or even in my Sourdough Tuna Melts for a quick and easy meal.
Best of all? It’s SO easy to make with just an immersion blender and a few simple ingredients.
Let me show you how!
Avocado Oil Mayo Fixings
Avocado Oil: I like to buy mine in bulk from Costco, but you can use whatever avocado oil you can find! I like the Chosen Foods brand.
Egg: Use good quality, clean, and pasture-raised eggs if possible.
Lemon: I like to use fresh lemon juice, but you can opt for good quality bottled lemon juice if that’s what you have on hand.
Dijon: Just a touch adds a lovely flavor!
Salt: I recommend starting with 1/2 teaspoon, but add more if you like it a bit salty! Read more about Almond Chicken Panda Express – A Perfect Flavors.
Immersion Blender: This inexpensive tool comes in handy for all kinds of dressings, soups (like my Butternut Squash and Coconut Milk soup), and sauces. I use mine very often!
Food Processor: If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can make this recipe using a food processor instead.
Avocado Oil Mayo Method
Add your avocado oil to a wide mouth quart size mason jar.
Add the egg, dijon mustard, lemon juice, and salt.
Allow resting for 5 minutes to allow the egg to float to the bottom and settle.
Once the egg stays at the bottom, insert the wand of a handheld immersion blender into the bottom and turn it on.
Blend constantly, until you begin to see the mixture emulsify.
As all of the oil emulsifies at the bottom, slowly begin moving the blender want further up in the jar to help the next level come together.
Keep going, moving up a little bit at a time, until all of your oil, egg, and other ingredients have come together.
Stir well and add an airtight lid to the jar.
Store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
How Long Does Homemade Avocado Oil Mayo Last?
Every time I make this homemade mayonnaise with avocado oil, it tends to disappear fast. However, if you are lucky enough to have any leftovers, this avocado mayonnaise recipe will keep for about a week in the refrigerator.
How to Store Avocado Oil Mayo?
Since avocado mayonnaise contains raw egg, it’s super important to keep it in the refrigerator. You should also keep it in a lidded container to prevent skin from forming on top of the mayo.
If the skin does form on the mayo don’t worry – it is still perfectly good to eat. It just might not look so pretty. Just stir it. You can get more from this video.
