With only a few ingredients and very little of your time you can create a great tasting homemade mayo.  I promise that after making your own, you will never want to buy it at the store again.  It’s that good.

Make your own Mayo-it's healthier and tastes so much better than store bought

 

One of the first things I set out to do when I started the Whole 30 in January was make my own mayo.  I’d made it a few times before in the past but it didn’t always turn out.  After testing many different recipes and discovering what works best I want to give you my NO FAIL recipe.

Demo Video of me making a batch of homemade mayo:

I strongly suggest you purchase an emersion blender if you don’t already have one.  This fairly cheap appliance will come in handy for mayo, dressings, soups, and more.  I have NEVER had a batch of homemade mayo fail since I stared using an emersion blender.  It can be done in a regular blender (with a blade on the bottom, low setting) or food processor but you must start with only 1/4 cup of olive oil and your egg.  Very SLOWLY pour in the remaining oil. Do not over blend.  Once emulsified stir in remaining ingredients.
