Whole30 Mayo

Homemade Whole30 Mayo takes less than 60 seconds to make and taste better than store-bought. With only 5 simple ingredients, this mayonnaise recipe will become a Whole30 staple in your refrigerator.


Units Scale
  • 1 large Egg - Room temperature
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon Lemon Juice - about half a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Oil - see notes below


Immersion Blender Method: 

  1. Add all the ingredients to a jar and place the blades directly over the egg yolk. 
  2. Turn the blender on low and hold over the yolk until the mixture starts to turn white.
  3. Next, slowly start to move the blender up and down in the oil.
  4. Continue blending, moving the immersion blender around slowly to emulsify all the oil -  this takes about 60 seconds. Stop when the mixture is thick and there is no separated oil left in the jar. 
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for one week. 

Food Processor or Blender Method: 

  1. Combine the first 4 ingredients in a food processor or blender. Cover with the lid and turn to the lowest setting. 
  2. Very slowly start to drizzle in the oil. {Pouring in the oil too fast can cause the mixture to separate or not emulsify properly}
  3. Continue pouring until all the oil is added and the mixture is completely combined. 
  4. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for one week. 


Use a light flavored oil for the mayonnaise. Avocado and light olive oil are great for Whole30 and Paleo versions. If you're not doing Whole30 or Paleo, Canola, Sunflower, Safflower, and Grapeseed are also good choices. 

Avoid strong flavor oils like coconut, extra virgin olive oil, and sesame seed. 

Store mayo in an airtight container or mason jar in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
