Homemade Mayo (Paleo & Whole30)

I’ve had a couple of friends and family members ask me how I make homemade mayo, so I figured I would share how I do it. It takes just a few ingredients (and an immersion blender... if you don’t have one I suggest getting one, they are great for blending sauces and soups), is a lot better for you than the processed stuff at the grocery store, is cheaper than buying, and once you have everything in the container, takes less than 30 seconds! There are many different varieties of homemade mayo and I’ve tried several, but this is my favorite.

1 cup avocado oil
Juice from 1/2 a lemon
1 tsp mustard
1/8 tsp salt
1 egg


  1. Place ingredients in a wide rimmed, large mason jar or plastic container.

  2. Place immersion blender directly over egg yolk at the bottom of the jar/container. Blend on high for about 10 seconds.

  3. Slowly move immersion blender up and down for another 10-15 seconds until all ingredients are smoothly blended together.

  4. Store in a closed container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

I use homemade mayo to make aioli, chicken/tuna salad, deviled eggs, and a plethora of sauces. I encourage you to try making your own mayo if you haven’t already!
