For many of us following the ketogenic lifestyle, making our own condiments to replace all those processed food condiments in the marketplace brings us a lot of personal satisfaction. Keto MCT Mayonnaise is one of those condiments that I make because it helps me get away from using the stuff I see on the shelves of grocery stores everywhere.
I was raised in a foster home and one of the cheapest foods they could serve us was peanut butter, after that came mayonnaise on bologna sandwiches. There were two spreads for those sandwiches, which of course were on a white bread that made you wonder how it was made. One choice was just called “sandwich spread” and the other was Hellmanns or Best Foods Mayonnaise. I kind of got hooked on Hellmanns because I sure did not care for the flavor of the sandwich spread.
When I adjusted my life from SAD (Standard American Diet) which is really a sad diet, to a healthier Whole Foods/Ketogenic lifestyle I had to adjust my condiments. One big switch was going to a sugar free peanut butter. I soon found that making my own peanut butter and other condiments was a much healthier choice. That includes making fresh Mayonnaise for my lettuce wrap sandwiches and salads. So here is a recipe for making your own mayonnaise with MCT oil.

- 2 eggs
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 2 tsp. white wine vinegar
- ½ tsp. ground turmeric
- 1 tsp. yellow mustard
- ¼-½ tsp. Himalayan Salt
- 1 cup of avocado oil oil
- 1 cup MCT oil
- Add farm fresh eggs, yolks, lemon juice, vinegar, turmeric, mustard and salt to your high-powered blender.
- Blend on high for 1 minute, until frothy.
- Reduce speed to medium and begin to (very slowly!) pour in oil, beginning with avocado oil, then moving to MCT oil. The process of adding the oil should take 2-3 minutes. The slower you go, the better the mayo will turn out.
- Transfer to a clean jar, cover and store in the fridge until needed.
Chefs Note #1: The slower you add the oil the better it will come together. If you add it to fast your mayonnaise will break and fixing that is a lot of extra work so take your time and in 4 or 5 minutes you will have a product that you will be very happy with.
Chefs Note #2: Using Turmeric in your condiments is optional and you will be getting a tiny bit in the mustard but it is such a healthy herb that using it as often as possible is a good idea.It is not only a seasoning, turmeric also contains health-promoting compounds called curcuminoids which are antioxidants that have strong, natural anti-inflammatory health benefits including the support of skin, brain, and gut health
The MCT oil I use I purchase from Perfect Keto. Actually I use Perfect Keto products daily starting with my coffee because they help keep me in ketosis throughout the day. If you would like to know more about the many wonderful keto products you just need to click Here
