Homemade Whole30 Mayonnaise – heart-healthy, creamy and delicious mayo that is a cinch to make with only a few ingredients!
This Homemade Whole30 Mayo is not only a healthier alternative, but is unbelievably easy to make! I started making this during my first round of Whole30 and never turned back. The flavor is so smooth and mild and I love that it contains only healthy fats from avocado oil.
My favorite uses for this homemade mayo are making chicken salad, homemade ranch dressing, and egg salad. This recipe makes about 2 1/2 cups, but you can easily halve the recipe if it’s too much for your family. Some recipes call for light olive oil, but I have had the best results with this avocado oil. Whichever oil you choose, be sure it is not the extra virgin variety because the flavor will be too strong. Try it soon and I promise you will be hooked!
- 2 1/2 cups avocado oil (not extra virgin)
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon mustard powder
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
Add 1/2 cup of the oil, eggs, salt, and mustard powder to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until combined. While the processor is running, slowly drizzle in the remaining 2 cups of oil until the mixture is emulsified (resembles mayo texture). Add lemon juice and pulse to combine. Store in a mason jar in the refrigerator.
