How to Make Mayonnaise

Who knew that mayonnaise was so simple? Make your own with just a few ingredients.


  • 1 egg yolk from a healthy pastured chicken
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (regular mustard works too)
  • Juice of half a lemon (lemon juice will work in a pinch but I have the best luck with fresh lemons)
  • 1 cup of healthy oil (Avocado, Macadamia, Walnut, etc.)


  1. Add ingredients to glass jar.
  2. Allow the ingredients to come to room temperature (1 hour +/-)
  3. Using your immersion blender draw the blender up from the bottom of the jar allowing all of the oil to emulsify into the mixture.
  4. Spread on everything and enjoy!


Get the kids involved! They will have fun watching the oil magically turn to mayonnaise.
