Easy, Wholesome Homemade Mayonnaise

This super-easy mayonnaise is SO MUCH BETTER tasting and better FOR YOU than the prepared mayo you buy in the store.

Seriously: once you make this you will never go back! You can experiment by adding different spices and herbs to customize it – dill or chili powder would be amazing, depending on what you are using the mayo for.


    • 1 large fresh organic egg
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
    • ½ tsp dry mustard
    • 1 cup avocado oil
    • ½ tsp salt (to taste)



    Place the egg, lemon juice and mustard in a high-speed blender or food processor (or if you want to use an immersion blender, in a large mason jar).


    Turn on the blender/food processor and very slowly drizzle in the oil until the mixture begins to emulsify and looks like mayonnaise. Continue adding the oil. Adjust seasonings.


    Let sit at room temperature (not too hot!) for about an hour before using or storing in the refrigerator. Will keep about two weeks.
