Healthy Homemade Mayonnaise

Homemade mayonnaise is a treat. It’s very simple to make, too. Room temperature ingredients are best when making mayonnaise at home. Using an immersion blender makes it such an easy task.

Equipment

  • immersion blender
  • jar or a jug or a mug

Ingredients

  • 200 ml avocado oil (1 cup)
  • 1 whole egg yolk (fresh organic)
  • 1 tsp mustard or 2 teaspoons depending on how you like it
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar use organic with mother
  • 1 pinch salt kosher or pink Himalayan
  • 1 pinch black pepper

Instructions

  • Take out any tall glass (mug or a jar) with a wide enough bottom to fit a hand blender all the way to touch the bottom.
  • Add the egg yolk (try not to break it) then add the vinegar, mustard, and salt on top of the egg yolk. No whizzing yet!
  • Pour the avocado oil over. Still no whizzing!
  • Very slowly submerge the blender all the way into the bottom of the jar till touch the bottom and start whizzing at med-high power and without moving the blender for approximately 20-25 seconds. You will just see the mayo will start turning white/yellowish.
  • Now, move the blender upwards but not getting it out into the air. Go downwards again into the jar till reached the bottom again. Go up and down a few more times until you have the mayonnaise all formed. This is it, in 2 min you have the mayo. That includes all the preps and gathering the ingredients. Pretty quick and easy, right?

Notes

Avocado oil - is particularly our favourite and the one I make the most primarily because it is a healthy option and it’s neutral when it comes to taste and flavours.
Eggs - Use as fresh eggs as possible. Use organic ideally procured from a sustainable source like a local farm or farmer's markets. I’ve made mayonnaise with store-bought eggs as well in the past and it was all ok, no problem.
