This easy Homemade Mayo Recipe is made in just 3 minutes from start to finish. A few simple healthy ingredients and you’ll have the thickest best tasting mayo you’ve ever had! And it’s so easy!



  • 1 cup avocado oil
  • 1 large egg (organic and as fresh as possible)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Add all ingredients to a wide-mouth 16 ounce mason jar.
  2. Insert the immersion blender into the bottom of the jar directly over top of the egg yolk. Blend on high and leave the immersion blender on the bottom of the jar without moving for approximately 20-30 seconds until the entire bottom of the jar is emulsified and is white and creamy. Then with the blender still on high, slowly lift up while you blend. Continue blending until the mayo is fully blended and thickened.
  3. Remove the immersion blender. Taste and add more salt if needed.
  4. Place the lid on the jar, mark the jar with the date the mayo was made and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.


*For this recipe eggs should be 1 week old or fresher for best results in order to yield a thick and creamy mayo.
