This old American Favorite condiment moves up the healthy food scale quite a bit when avocado oil is used instead of regular vegetable oil.

Three Healthy reasons to choose Avocado oil:

  1. Avocado oil is rich in Oleic acids which is considered heart healthy lowering both blood pressure and bad cholesterol.
  2. Avocado also helps the body absorb certain nutrients in vegetables. That is an EXCELLENT reason to make your mayo with avocado. This recipe will benefit the body’s ability to absorb the nutrients of recipes it’s used in.
  3. Avocado works well in all sorts of recipes, even high heat recipes. So this Healthy mayonnaise with Avocado oil has a very high smoke point which means it’s going to retain all of its nutritional benefits in grilled foods(think marinades),skillet recipes and baked foods like our Garden Harvest pie.

Add the health benefits of avocado oil and the other ingredients in this simple recipe for an easy to make food processor mayonnaise ready to use in under five minutes. That’s including digging out the short list of necessary ingredients.

TIPS for Avocado oil Mayonnaise:

  • Safely store this mayo in your fridge in an airtight container for 2 weeks. This recipe makes about two cups mayonnaise and  a little bit more. It fit just right into a pint jar all the way to the lid. This Mayonnaise can be used right away but will set up more firmly after several hours in the fridge.
  • The dijon mustard is a VERY important flavor component for this recipe. Don’t substitute!
  • I made this recipe in my food processor and it worked wonderfully well. I have tried making homemade mayonnaise in a blender in the past with poor results .FYI, I don’t recommend a blender for this recipe.
  • ALSO, I’m not kidding about using the narrow cup and pouring the oil through it’s teeny pour hole. This is a critical step. You must pour a tiny amount of oil in at a time or it won’t set up. (I think this is the other reason my blender recipes never worked).

Do you think this recipe would work with 2 egg whites?


Wednesday 2nd of June 2021

Hi Cindy, I believe you can do this recipe with egg whites only. I would add another egg white in if you have it. I found this recipe for you if ours doesn't adapt well. Please let us know how it goes for you!

Is the fat now a heart healthy fat?


Saturday 21st of November 2020

Hi Kerri, If you use avocado oil in this recipe you will have a much heart healthier mayo. Remember the eggs are going to add some cholesterol to the recipe. So if you need a low cholesterol may you may need to use your favorite egg substitute. But overall this mayo is miles ahead for flavor and health from the cheap store bought brands. Hope this helps!

I just tried my first batch because I really want to be healthy, but the Mayo has too much of an oil taste. Any suggestions for making it taste more like store bought? Or do I just need to try to retain my mouth more? ?


Tuesday 5th of November 2019

Hi Faun, Try a bit less oil in your next batch. See if it holds together. It's ok to experiment with this recipe but homemade mayo is different from store bought. Store bought often has extra ingredients to keep it really thick. And the oils are masked. Try using your homemade for a while and see if you get used to it. It really is quite a bit better for you. There are commercially made mayonnaise out there with avocado oil you may prefer. But they are pretty spendy. Hope this helps! Have a great day

can I use egg beaters instead of eggs


Wednesday 2nd of August 2017

Hi Sarah, I have not tried this but I do think it should work. If you succeed with egg beaters let me know. Sounds like a good recipe twist for a low cholesterol result. Thanks and have a great day!
