Traditional Mayo vs.
Homemade Avocado Oil Mayo Recipe
Although many people demonize mayonnaise because of its fat
content, those dietary fats actually aren’t
the problem. In fact, dietary fats are one of THE MOST crucial nutrients
for our bodies, and fat is an incredible source of fuel! The real problem: most classic mayos are made with soybean oil—one of the worst inflammatory offenders.
Soybean oil is cheap and easy to obtain, which is why it’s used so frequently in TONS of different processed food items. But, like most vegetable and seed oils, soybean oil is loaded with inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids—a.k.a. the root of chronic inflammation in the western world.
Plus, most store-bought mayonnaise also comes with a host of other unnecessary additives, some of which aren’t even real food. Added sugars, artificial preservatives, modified food starches—the list goes on! Combined with the inflammatory soybean oil, THESE are the problematic ingredients that make classic mayonnaise not such a healthy choice.
Luckily, this avocado oil mayo recipe ditches the inflammatory oil and questionable additives! The only ingredients you’ll need are avocado oil, an egg, some lemon juice, a bit of Dijon, and salt. It contains nutritious, luscious dietary fats from egg and the avocado oil. But, avocado oil contains anti-inflammatoryomega-9s, also known as monounsaturated fats (MUFAs)!
How to Make Homemade Avocado Oil Mayo
Not only is homemade avocado oil mayo cleaner and more nutritious, it’s also SO easy to make. All you’ll need are your 5 simple ingredients, a tall cup, and an immersion blender! Simply add all of your ingredients to the cup and begin to pulse with your immersion blender.
You don’t want to blend this mixture at full, sustained speed—just pulse, pulse, pulse, until your thick avocado oil mayo begins to form. I find that it helps to lift your immersion blender up and down gently as you’re pulsing to help the mixture get nice and fluffed.
You’ll be able to tell
when it’s done because you’ll have a perfectly thick, creamy mayo ready to
enjoy! Feel free to use your homemade avocado oil
mayo immediately after making it, either as a spread, in a recipe, or however
you like. Or, transfer to an airtight jar or container and store in the fridge
for up to a week.
Seriously, I enjoy the taste of this avocado oil mayo
recipe more than any traditional
store-bought mayonnaise. I promise, once
you give it a try and a taste, you’ll be hooked!
