Dairy-Free (DF) Gluten-Free (GF) Keto Paleo Recipes Sauces Whole30
Avocado Oil Mayonnaise (Paleo, Keto, Whole30, GFDF)
September 9, 2019

I love mayo! Since I can’t do dairy, mayo ends up being a staple. I avoided making my own for years. For some reason, I have always been a little intimidated. Turns out, it’s actually pretty simple and easy. This avocado oil mayonnaise recipe has become my go-to mayo recipe. It’s delicious in my egg salad, tuna salad, or as a salad dressing base.

The problem with commercial mayo is that it’s always made with inflammatory oils. Either soybean oil, canola oil, or some other oil that doesn’t come from naturally oily food. These oils cause systemic inflammation, which leads to chronic illness.

So far, avocado oil has been my choice for quick mayo to keep in the fridge on the regular. But, I’ve also been experimenting with other oils including olive oil and bacon grease. Bacon grease mayo is a bit more difficult because the fat is saturated. Saturated fats are solid at room temperature, so you have to warm them up before you can make mayo out of them, which can be tricky since raw eggs are involved. So, for now, this avocado oil mayonnaise recipe is my go-to mayo recipe.

Find Immersion Blenders on Amazon!

If you make homemade mayonnaise, I’d love to know which oils you prefer. If you’ve mastered using saturated fats like bacon grease, I’d love to hear any tips or tricks you’ve learned in your process.
