I don’t know about you but I couldn’t live without a fridge full of healthy sauces and dressings. Especially avocado mayo. It’s one of the fastest ways to brighten up a dish. And when you have this super easy and thick avocado oil mayonnaise recipe, there’s no reason not to have some in your fridge at all times.
When I first started eating healthier, I was so shocked at the amount of additives in a store bought jar of mayo. I soon discovered avocado oil mayonnaise, a healthy paleo alternative to many standard mayo options. But, these are expensive and they still sometimes have ingredients I’d rather avoid.
Sure, you can buy avocado mayo from some great paleo brands. But why do that when you can make your own homemade mayonnaise with avocado oil using just 5 ingredients and make it in under 5 minutes? It’s so easy and fast!
Is Avocado Oil Mayonnaise Paleo and Keto?
This avocado mayonnaise recipe certainly is both paleo and keto. Avocado oil is a great healthy fat, being rich in oleic acid (a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid). The carb count of avocado mayo is extremely low (nearly zero) and fine for a keto diet, as well as a paleo diet.
How To Make Avocado Oil Mayo
This recipe for avocado oil mayo can be whipped up in minutes. You won’t believe how easy it is to make avocado mayo and will wonder why you’ve never made it before!
All you need to do to make homemade mayonnaise with avocado oil is:
- Place the eggs, vinegar, lemon juice and mustard into a jar.
- Mix with an immersion blender to combine.
- Slowly, ever so slowly, stream the avocado oil into the jar and continue blending with the immersion blender to combine.
PRO TIP: Don’t add the oil too fast! If you add the oil too quickly and don’t allow the mixture to combine slowly, the avocado mayo can split. So, go SLOW!
After blending, give it a good stir with a spatula and cover the jar with a lid.
How Long Does Homemade Mayonnaise With Avocado Oil Last?
Every time I make this homemade mayonnaise with avocado oil, it tends to disappear really fast. However, if you are lucky enough to have any left over, this avocado mayonnaise recipe will keep for about a week in the refrigerator.
How To Store Avocado Mayo
Since the avocado mayonnaise contains raw egg, it’s super important to keep it in the refrigerator. You should also keep it in a lidded container to prevent a skin forming on top of the mayo.
If a skin does form on the mayo don’t worry – it is still perfectly good to eat. It just might not look so pretty. Just give it a stir.
Does This Avocado Mayo Recipe Have a Really Strong Taste?
I love the taste of avocado mayo. I find it ever so slightly more ‘savory’ in taste than regular mayo, but the taste isn’t overpowering.
TIP: Make sure you use a light colored, neutral tasting avocado oil – NOT extra virgin. If you use extra virgin avocado oil, the taste of it will come through in the homemade avocado mayo.
Is It Safe To Make This Avocado Mayonnaise Recipe With Raw Egg?
Provided you use a really fresh egg and use a good quality free range egg, you’re pretty much always going to be fine. Statistically speaking, only 1 in every 30,000 eggs is contaminated with salmonella and tends to be found in mass reared chickens that are not well kept.
TIP: Many homemade mayonnaise recipes recommend making avocado oil mayo with eggs that are at room temperature. Although I do find that this gives a quicker and super thick result, if you only have eggs that have been in the refrigerator or you have just brought them home from the store, simply put them in some warm water to bring them to room temperature.
Can You Make This Avocado Mayonnaise Recipe In A Regular Blender?
Yes, you can make avocado mayo in a blender. The trick is to keep the blender running at all times and add the avocado oil to the mixed base ingredients super slowly. After many tests, I find that the immersion blender is a far more reliable way of making avocado mayo. The result is thicker and shinier, and it tends not to split.
Just look at how thick it is!!
