Avocado Oil Mayo Recipe


  • 1 egg (good quality)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons mustard (highly recommend spicy brown mustard from Trader Joe's)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup avocado oil
Prep time:
5 minutes
Yield: 1 cup | Prep time: 5 minutes |


1. Crack egg into blending cup without breaking the yolk. Add lemon juice, mustard and salt. Then add avocado oil (it should go last!).

2. Insert the immersion blender all the way to the bottom of the cup (trapping the egg yolk within the blade), turn it on and don't move for 20 seconds (the suction creates a similar effect we get by slowly pouring in oil). Then slowly lift and continue blending until the mayo has thickened.
3. Store covered in the fridge for about a week.

This is a must-try for me. I just don't like store-bought mayo and this recipe sounds creamy and delicious.

I really love the idea of making mayo using avo oil. I cannot wait to try it. Thanks for sharing this great recipe and idea. I do make my own mayo and this is great alternative, definitely a healthier one.

I didn't know an immersion blender could function the same way as slowly pouring in the oil. That's interesting! I usually use a hand mixer for making mayo, so I slowly pour it in. This mayo looks super delicious though - mustard is important!
