Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 15 mins
Servings 4


  • 1 whole large egg right from refrigerator
  • 3 teaspoons fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 scant cup of avocado oil

Optional add-ins

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • fresh herbs and seasonings
  • 1 garlic clove peeled and chopped


  • Place egg, lemon juice and salt in blender or food processor and start running on low.
  • Once mixed slowly start dripping your oil in
  • I drip 1 tbsp of oil at a time and let it mix for at least a minute
  • As you continue to add your oil, it will emulsify but continue to add slowly so you don't break it
  • Once your mayonnaise is done, then you can hand mix in any optional ingredients you want
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week
  • Invest in anĀ immersion blender so you can make the mayo faster like above
