How To Make Healthy Mayonnaise

How To Make Healthy Mayonnaise

Have you ever thought about what goes into mayonnaise and How To Make Healthy Mayonnaise? It is an easy process that only takes a few minutes and gives you control over what goes into and onto your other foods.

I have always really enjoyed mayonnaise, to the point that I would use about twice as much as everyone else on a sandwich. I remember as a young boy growing up in foster homes I would make peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwiches. Some people thought it sounded yukie but I was quite happy when I could make one. Most of the time they were probably made on Wonder bread as well. Now that I think back, yuk might  have been a good description as far as health goes. Today I make my own mayonnaise as well as my own peanut butter. 

Healthy Mayonnaise
Recipe type: Condiment
Cuisine: International
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ medium lemon juiced
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp sweet paprika
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¾ cup avocado oil
  1. Add the egg yolk, vinegar, lemon juice, sea salt, turmeric, paprika, and garlic powder to a blender or food processor,
  2. Blend until completely mixed, about a minute.
  3. Continue blending while adding the oil one tablespoonful at a time allowing it to emulsify before adding the next tablespoon of oil. Continue until all the oil has been added.

  5. It will keep for up to two weeks.

Commercial mayonnaise is made with things like soybean oil, sugar, calcium disodium and eggs from factory raised chickens and vinegar plus that catch all phrase “Natural flavors” Think about that for a minute. Car oil has a “natural flavor” I am pretty sure that cow manure has a “natural flavor” but I’m not going to taste it to find out. The point is that “Natural flavors” could mean anything to the producer of the product. 99% of soybeans in the USA are raised using GMO’s. 54% of the sugar is make from sugar beets of which 90% are GMO raised, and factory raised chickens are also raised eating GMO corn.

Keto Friendly; 1 tablespoon is 95 calories, 0 Carbs. 0 protein and 11 grams of fat.

The health benefits of turmeric is so important to our health that I add it to the foods I eat every chance I have. In this homemade mayonnaise it does change the color from the mayonnaise you buy in your local store slightly but it is worth a little change if it can help make a good change to our over all health. Turmeric has been reported to help alleviate pain, slow the aging process, protect the digestive tract, and prevent cancer to name a few of its powers. Turmeric works alone but really works better with the help of black pepper so when I use the mayonnaise I usually sprinkle it with a little black pepper.

Once you start making your own condiments you will be able to enjoy them without the overload of carbs and sugars. The health benefits are without question a plus that makes the small time investment very worthwhile. Enjoy.

  • It is easy and fast. I enjoy the fact that it is used up in a couple of weeks and not a bottle that will take up extra space in the refrigerator for 6 months. Whenever I need more it takes less that 10 minutes to make my own healthy mayonnaise.

  • You can also use Olive Oil if you wish in place of the avocado oil. The three oils in my kitchen are Avocado oil, Extra Virgin Olive oil and Coconut Oil. However
    my Wife is not a big fan of the flavor of olive oil so I use avocado oil in this recipe, which does not add to the flavor because of the spices.
