  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar (I prefer apple cider or white wine)
  • 1 1/4 cup avocado oil
  1. In a wide-mouth mason jar, combine the egg, salt, mustard powder, lemon juice, and vinegar.
  2. Measure oil out into a separate measuring cup.
  3. Set both side by side on the counter and bring to room temperature (at least an hour, preferably two. Or, do what I do, and leave it all day and come back to it right before bed.)
  4. Place your immersion blender all the way at the bottom of the jar and pulse once or twice. Add 1/4 cup of the oil and pulse once or twice more.
  5. Add the remaining oil and continue to run/pulse the immersion blender until a thick mayo forms. This should take less than a minute!
  6. Store in the fridge in a closed container for up to two weeks.
Recipe Notes

One batch of mayo makes about 1 1/2 cups total. 


If your mayo isn't coming together, you have 1 of 2 problems:


1. Your ingredients weren't all the exact same temperature. Make sure they are all on the same place on your counter together while they are coming to room temp! 


2. You tried to do it in a blender or food processor without reading the post. For this method to work, you HAVE to have an immersion blender. If you're using a blender or food processor, read the post for separate instructions.
