DIY Homemade All Natural Mayonnaise Recipe - In Only 5 Minutes!

I LOVE mayonnaise but hate how my favorite brand, Hellmann's, uses GMO soybean oil and natural flavors (which most of the time means MSG).

Since I use my DIY Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix (MSG free!) recipe all the time, mayonnaise is a staple in my house. I have been looking for an easy recipe for a long time, and a friend of mine shared this one with me. Oh My! It is so easy and so tasty. You have to try it!

1 egg yolk 
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar and/or lemon juice
1/4 tsp mustard (wet mustard was used for this batch)
1 C avocado oil (or other neutral tasting oil)


1. Put everything except the oil in a jar. With a stick blender, start blending.

2. Add the oil as you are blending.

3. Once emulsified, it will thicken up and be ready.

Note: If you do not have a stick blender you can use a hand whisk, but it will take extra man power.

This mayonnaise should last up to a week in the fridge if stored properly, or if you culture it (with a tablespoon of lacto-fermented whey) it can last up to a month.
