Description

Whip up a cup of homemade mayonnaise with ingredients you probably already have. Enjoy a healthy fat with fresh taste. Mayonnaise is very simply an emulsion of oil and eggs, with some acidity and salt. Adding a probiotic twist makes it a gut-healthy win. 

Basic Ingredients

Optional Probiotic and Herb Additions

Instructions

  1. Separate the egg whites from the yolk. You can also use the entire egg, if desired. It does not affect the texture of the manyonnaise if you blend thoroughly with a mechanical blender. If you hand whisk the mayo, it may affect the overall texture to add the egg white. 

  2. Stir the egg yolk or whole egg slightly, mixing in any other ingredients, except the oil.

  3. Slowly add oil while whisking or blending continuously. Once the mayo starts to thicken add the oil in a steady stream while blending. Be careful not to add too much oil at once. 

    If the mixture is too thick, add water one teaspoon at a time. If it is too thin, add another egg yolk and adjust the other ingredients as you like.

Note

Avocado oil is my choice of oil for many things, including condiments. It is rich in oleic acid, a healthy fat. Avocado oil is reported to help reduce cholesteroal and improve heart health. It is high in lutein, an anti-oxidant that benefits eye health. It has a high smoke temperature (500 degrees) so it is a great choice if you plan on cooking with your mayonnaise.

Adding a probiotic liquid, such as a brine or yogurt, elevates the nutritional value, making your homemade mayo excellent for gut health. The addition will also help your homemade mayo last a little longer in the refrigerator.

Frequently Asked Questions

Expand All:
What about using raw eggs? What are the risks of salmonella?

Almost all recipes for store-bought and homemade mayonnaise contain raw eggs unless the recipe is for vegan mayonnaise or egg-free mayonnaise. Generally, these raw-egg mayonnaises will still be safe to consume since the egg or mayonnaise goes through a pasteurization process that kills excess bacteria that could otherwise harm you.

Can you eat mayonnaise if you are pregnant?

Pregnant women may eat mayonnaise given that the eggs are pasteurized, especially if the brand states that they use pasteurized eggs. However, it may be best for pregnant women to avoid homemade mayonnaise if you are not sure if the eggs were pasteurized. Best to be safe.
