Healthy Homemade Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is used as a base for most dressings, sauces and dips, but most store bought products are filled with unnatural ingredients. Here is a clean natural mayonnaise recipe that can be used on it's own or as a substitute for traditional mayonnaise in other recipes.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 Egg Yolks (use only farm fresh eggs from healthy chickens)

  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 1 tsp lemon juice

  • 1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar

  • 1 tsp raw honey

  • ½ tsp Sea Salt

  • Dash garlic powder (optional)

  • 1 cup olive oil or avocado oil

 

Directions: 

  • In a pint sized mason jar, place egg yolks, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, honey, sea salt and optional garlic powder.

  • Place immersion blender into the jar and quickly blend ingredients.

  • Add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil to the mixture and blend. Continue to add olive oil 1 Tablespoon at a time until it begins to thicken (emulsify). Once it begins to thicken you can add a few tablespoons at a time or more, continuing to blend until you have added all of the olive oil. You may stir in more oil, honey, lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to adjust taste or for a thinner consistency.

  • Place in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks. The apple cider vinegar gives it beneficial bacteria to prolong the refrigeration life. If the mayo begins to smell or look green then immediately toss.
