How To Make Carnivore Mayonnaise

Jar of Butter Mayo on wooden board

Use any type of animal fat to make your own Carnivore compliant mayo! Lemon and mustard add flavor but are optional if you are unable to tolerate those ingredients.

Prep Time 2 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 3 Egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup of any animal fat such as butter, tallow, lard, duck fat, chicken fat, etc
  • 1 tsp. Mustard
  • 1 tsp. Lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt


  1. Place your egg yolks in a medium-sized bowl or measuring cup. Large enough to handle your hand mixer or immersion blender.
  2. Place your chosen fat into a microwave-safe container or a pot on the stove and heat it to melt. You don't want it to be too hot!
  3. Add the lemon juice and mustard to your egg yolk mixture (if using).
  4. Mix/blend your yolk mixture until it is nice and frothy. (approximately 30 seconds)
  5. Add the salt to your yolk mixture.
  6. While mixing your yolk mixture, start slowly adding your melted fat to the cup. You need to constantly blend, letting the fat incorporate with the yolks. This step should take at least 5-6 minutes. Your mix should look nice and creamy.
  7. Place in the fridge and use as needed. (Use up within 10 days)


  • Your mayo will be good in the fridge for up to 10 days.
  • If your mayo is too hard after being in the fridge, either add an extra yolk or add 1 tbsp warm water to the mix next time you make it.
  • You can use any animal fat or even a mix such as combining butter and bacon grease for example.
