🥑 Ingredients You’ll Need
A few important notes about the ingredients:
- Avocado Oil: Neutral-flavored oil, like avocado, is a non-negotiable ingredient. You can make one-minute mayo with olive oil, but do NOT -I repeat do NOT use extra virgin olive oil.
- Lemon Juice: A splash of citric acid form half of a lemon adds subtle tangy flavor and helps thicken the mayonaiise.
- Egg: For the best results, be sure to use a fresh, room temperature egg.
- Ground Mustard Powder: gives it a little zing!
- Salt & Pepper: to enhance every flavor.
📖 How To Make Avocado Mayonaisse
1️⃣ Combine ingredients.
Pour the avocado oil, lemon juice, egg, mustard powder, salt, and pepper into a wide-mouth mason jar or a large glass container.
2️⃣ Emulify ingredients.
Submerge the immersion blender into the jar until it reaches the bottom. Then, turn the blender on and begin blending. As the mixture thickens, slowly lift the immersion blender to the top of the jar until the ingredients are emulsified from top to bottom.
🤓 Recipe Tips
- Make sure you’re working with room temperature ingredients. Otherwise, you may have trouble getting the mayonnaise to thicken.
- Blend the mayo with TLC. The slower you lift the immersion blender up through the ingredients, the thicker and creamier your mayo will be.
- If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can throw everything but the oil in a blender or food processor. Start blending and then SLOWLY drizzle in the avocado oil.
This avocado oil mayo is a perfect canvas for flavor. It’s easy to transform into a Whole30 flavored aioli. Check out the list below for ideas:

- Buffalo Aioli – Whisk equal parts mayo and your favorite buffalo sauce.
- Garlic & Herb Aioli – Add mayo and a generous amount of fresh garlic and fresh herbs to a food processor. Pulse until the the garlic and herbs are fully incorporated.
- Ranch Dressing – Stir about 3 tablespoons of ranch seasoning mix into a half cup of avocado mayo.
- Roated Garlic Aioli – Blend mayo with a generous amount of roasted garlic.
Storing: Refrigerate mayonnaise in a sterilized glass container with a tight-fitted lid for 3 – 4 days. Do not freeze.
In addition to Primal Kitchen, Tessemae’s and Sir Kensington’s make a Whole30 compliant jarred mayo for your dip, dressing, and sauce needs.
Before giving up and starting over, try this: whisk in two teaspoons of boiling water. The hot water will help the broken yolks reset so they can be re-emulsified with the oil.
No. Avocado oil has a pleasant, savory flavor similar to regular mayonnaise.

Curious about the egg yolk? Isn’t just egg whites ok to eat uncooked? Is there a substitute I could use?
Eggs are generally safe to consume raw if in-shell pasteurized eggs are used. Hope that helps! -Krista (Team Thyme & JOY)
