Easy Avocado Oil Mayonnaise Recipe So Delicious You Will Want it on Everything!

Mayonnaise and Avocado oilEasy Avocado Oil Mayonnaise Recipe So Delicious You Will Want it on Everything!

I really like mayonnaise. I mean I really, really like it! When I am doing the Egg Fast, I use more than I normally would. It was starting to bother me that all the store bought mayo around here were made with either canola oil or soybean oil.

So I decided to make my own keto avocado oil mayonnaise recipe. There is a printable recipe card at the end of this post in case you want to print and take this recipe with you. 

If you want to see how this keto avocado oil mayo fits into your keto lifestyle, I talk a little about oils and fat in another article if you want to read a list of which fats and oils are best for the Keto diet.  

Is Avocado Oil Mayonnaise Better Than Regular Mayonnaise?

The issue I have with the oils used in store bought mayonnaise is the high Omega 6 content as well as the fact they are partially or fully hydrogenated. Not good!

Acocado oil is a superfood, it has healthy fats, can help reduce cholesterol, can improve your skin and your ability to heal, and so many other great health benefits. Don’t take my word for it, check out this article by healthline.

Making this homemade keto avocado oil mayo recipe is really dead simple! All you need is a jar and a stick blender.

A regular blender is NOT recommended for this recipe.

The recipe below can be customized with whatever oils and flavor you want. Add dill weed or make a curry mayo or a chipotle mayo. 

The possibilities are endless! In the avocado oil mayonnaise pictured here, I used a teaspoon of dried cilantro.

Why Use Avocado Oil For Mayonnaise?

A word of caution, don’t make a homemade mayonnaise recipe with extra virgin olive oil! Just don’t! I think every single person who attempts homemade mayo makes this mistake at least once. 

We think because it’s a nice healthy oil it should make a great mayo. NO! It tastes like dog doodoo (not that I know first hand what that tastes like!) and you will end up throwing it out. The secret to making your own mayonnaise is using an oil with very little flavor. 

How To Make Avocado Oil Mayonnaise – Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup avocado oil
  • 1 large egg (allow to come to room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard – Do Not Forget This! It somehow makes the mayo set better!
  • 1 teaspoon dried herbs (optional. this is where you could add cilantro or dill or what have you)
  • Himalayan sea salt (a few twists or to taste)

Put it All Together

Put all ingredients in a wide mouth jar. Using the immersion blender, run it until the mixture emulsifies and looks like mayo. How easy is that!?

I have made mayonnaise using a regular blender and yes, you can do that if you really want to, BUT don’t do it unless you have experience. 

It is not foolproof like with the immersion blender.  You have to first blend the egg and other ingredients and then slowly drizzle in the oil.

The immersion (or stick) blender is just my tool of choice for this job! I like the Cuisinart because it comes with a perfect jar that fits the blender and has measurements up the side. It also works beautifully!

I hope now that you have seen how easy it is to make your own mayonnaise that you will give this a try!

  1. Thanks so much! This is great. I made one batch and then after having some egg salad I immediately made another batch. no matter that there are two different kinds of mayo already in the fridge hahaha. I used Grey Poupon mustard so mine has little flecks in it. I didn’t put enough salt in my first batch but my second batch was perfect. It didn’t all fit in the jar so I realized I needed to make a little more egg salad with one more hard-boiled egg. The struggle is real. 😂😂😂

    1. The mayo tastes nothing like avocado at all! You can also substitute any other light tasting oil. Some oils have a strong flavor (don’t use extra virgin olive oil for example).

    2. Arreggggh! Same here – followed the recipe – NEVER thickened. Added more mustard and an extra yolk and nothing helped. So so disappointed 😞
