So my advice is to make your own homemade mayonnaise with healthy oils, a classic mayonnaise can be simple to make using just egg yolks, oil, lemon juice or vinegar and seasonings. Good oils to use include good quality monounsaturated oils, such as; avocado oil, olive oil, macadamia or walnut oil and flaxseed oil.
I would like to share with you one of my favourite mayonnaise recipes. It literally takes 5 minutes to make and is vegan friendly (egg free)
Avocados and olive oil are both high in monounsaturated oleic acid, a “heart healthy” fatty acid with powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Avocados provide the deliciously creamy texture and are a powerhouse of nutrition, especially rich in potassium which has been shown to play a key role in reducing blood pressure.
1 large avocado
3 tablespoons cold pressed olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
½ tsp garlic powder
- Cut your perfect avocado in half and remove the stone.
- Scoop out the avocado flesh and add to a blender, add the olive oil, lemon juice, water, garlic powder and salt.
- Blend until smooth and creamy, should take around 30 seconds.
* Best stored in a glass jar in the fridge.
