Recently, I was talking to a group of friends and the topic of making your own mayonnaise came up. I was trying to explain how I make it at home, but the explanation didn’t seem to fully clarify the process of how the immersion blender creams up the ingredients into the final product. So I decided to make a video tutorial!
This is my first video, and I’m pretty excited about it, so I hope you have as much fun watching it as I had making it. Click the image above to watch!
How to Make Paleo Mayonnaise
- Immersion blender
- 2 eggs (or just the yolks for a thicker consistency)
- 1 cup avocado oil
- juice of ½ lemon
- 2 tsp dijon mustard
- salt, to taste
In a wide-mouthed glass jar that can fit the head of the immersion blender, pour in eggs, lemon juice, avocado oil, dijon mustard, and salt.
Slowly lower the blender in to jar until it hits the bottom.
Turn on the blender and let it run without moving until you see a white creamy cloud start forming from the bottom. It will rise up as the oil get slowly incorporated into the mixture.
When most of the oil is blended in to the cloud, slowly lift the blender up while it's running.
By the time you get to the top, there shouldn't be much oil left and your mayo should be made.
Screw on the lid and the mayo should last in the fridge for up to 2 weeks!
