This is a great go-to egg-free "mayo" recipe. Are you avoiding eggs? Can't get enough of that creamy avocado goodness? This avocado mayonnaise is tangy and creamy, just like mayonnaise should be...but with even more flavor!
Enjoy this mayo substitute on sandwiches, burgers, or use it as a dip for your veggies. No matter how you use it, I know you'll love it.
Traditional Mayonnaise vs avocado mayonnaise
Mayonnaise is traditionally made by carefully combining eggs and oil to make an emulsion. For a traditional egg mayonnaise, check out this homemade avocado oil mayonnaise. You can easily make it in just a couple minutes.
To be clear, I absolutely love my mayonnaise recipe. It's awesome. But not everybody likes mayonnaise, and not everybody can eat eggs.
So if that's you...please use this recipe as a mayo substitute and ENJOY!
Egg Free avocado Mayonnaise
This egg free avocado "mayo" is not identical to mayonnaise, but it's super tangy, creamy, and delicious.
And it's a great way to include healthy avocados in your diet. AND I think it's way more flavorful than the mayonnaise that you're used to.
I've seen egg-free mayonnaise and avocado mayonnaise options at the store, but I've been discouraged that they seem to use vegetable oils, which aren't something I want to put in my body if I can help it.
Good thing I have a great recipe to make my own at home!
Health Benefits of avocado
Avocados are incredibly nutritious. Here are just a few health benefits.
- Avocados are full of the good, heart-healthy fats
- They are higher in potassium than bananas
- Avocados are a high fiber, nutrient rich food
Recommended Tools & Ingredients For Avocado Mayonnaise
- Immersion blender - If you don't already have an immersion blender, grab this one. It has a powerful motor which means no smoking and burning up the motor when you use it (I've tried several and this one works great).
- Mason jar - This size works great to store dips and sauces.
- Rubber spatula - This is a kitchen must-have. You're wasting food if you don't have a rubbery rubber spatula like this one.
- Apple cider vinegar - make sure it has the "mother" like this one.
- Avocado oil - you can use any mild tasting oil, we really love this non-GMO avocado oil.
- Lemon juice - Careful with this one. All you need is lemon juice, not a bunch of preservatives. Buy fresh lemons or 100% lemon juice like this one.
How To Make Avocado Mayonnaise
The process to make this avocado mayonnaise is super simple. Throw all the ingredients into a mason jar, then blend it up using your immersion blender (I highly recommend this immersion blender). It's one of my favorite time saving tools in the kitchen.
How To Use Avocado Mayonnaise
Serve it as a veggie dip for your holiday party, or spread it on your burger. I think you'll love it no matter how you use it.
Where to Buy Avocado Mayonnaise
This recipe is super simple and only takes five minutes to whip up a batch. But maybe you're sitting there like..."but I don't HAVE five minutes right now." Well, I get it. We all go through busy seasons.
And sometimes you might decide it's worth it to BUY something that's pre-made instead of MAKING it from scratch. We all need to make the decision about what's worth it to make and what's not.
So if you're looking to buy avocado mayonnaise, check your local health food store. They'll probably have an egg free mayo, but it won't be made with avocados.
Or you can look on Amazon. I searched for "egg free mayo with avocados" on Amazon and got these results. You'll see it's not going to be the same as this recipe.
Also, I would caution you to check the ingredients and make sure you know what you're eating. Most sauces and dips are highly processed and have a bunch of stuff that we'd be better off NOT eating.
In the end, this avocado mayo is delicious, nutritious, and worth taking five minutes to make at home.
