And yet here I am with a recipe for homemade Whole30 mayonnaise. Yeah, I can’t believe it either.
Is It Safe To Make Homemade Mayo?
For the smoothest mayonnaise, you’ll want to use raw egg yolks at room temperature. You’ll refrigerate the finished product but the yolks will never be cooked. Due to this fact, only use egg yolks from sources that you trust.
What Kind of Oil Should I Use in Whole30 Mayonnaise?
You want an oil will a low flavor profile so that it doesn’t overwhelm the finished product. Just using all olive oil is way too strong, and soybean and canola are banned on Whole30.
Over time, I’ve found it is best to use a mix of different oils. Melted expeller-pressed coconut oil adds a good texture, walnut oil or avocado oil are tasteless, and just a small amount of olive oil gives it a great flavor. Avoid virgin coconut oil as it does have a coconut taste.
If you use coconut oil, this oil is solid below 76 degrees. The finished product will be a slightly thicker mayo after it has been chilled in the fridge. The olive, avocado, and/or walnut oil make it spreadable.
What Tools Do I Need?
A bowl, a whisk, and a strong bicep are technically all you need. But if you don’t feel like exhausting your arm, a food processor or an immersion blender will make the job a lot easier. If you use the immersion blender, you can mix and store everything right in a simple pint-sized canning jar. Yay for fewer dishes!
Pro Tips/Recipe Notes
- Make sure your eggs are room temperature.
- If you are using a food processor, most will come with a little plastic insert for the lid that has a small hole in it. That is designed to slowly add the oil in while making homemade mayonnaise. Use this insert to make the process even easier.
- If you are using an immersion blender you can add ALL the ingredients together at once in the mason jar. Position your stick blender at the bottom of the jar and blend moving the blender up and down until everything is blended. I prefer to add things in shifts because I think it keeps the mixture from “breaking” at a later time i.e., the oil and eggs separating.
- Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
