If you’re avoiding eggs for any reason, this is a great go-to “mayo” recipe. Or maybe you just want to find more ways to incorporate avocados into your diet. Either way, you’ll love this egg free avocado mayonnaise. It’s tangy and creamy, just like mayonnaise should be.
Mayonnaise is traditionally made by carefully combining eggs and oil to make an emulsion. For a traditional egg mayonnaise, check out this post about Homemade Mayonnaise in Five Minutes.
To be clear, I absolutely love my mayonnaise recipe. It’s awesome. And I’d eat it by the spoonful if I could. But I’m trying to not eat eggs for a while to see if they might be bothering my body.
Egg Free Mayonnaise
Since I really love the flavor and texture that mayonnaise brings to food, I was determined to find an egg free option.
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.
I’ve seen egg-free mayonnaise and avocado mayonnaise options at the store. But I’ve been discouraged that they seem to use hydrogenated 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!
Avocado Health Benefits
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
The process is super simple. Throw all the ingredients into a mason jar, then blend it up using your immersion blender (I recommend this immersion blender, if you’re in the market for one). It’s one of my favorite time saving tools in the kitchen.

Or maybe you just want to dip some veggies in it. However you decide to eat this avocado mayonnaise, I hope you love it!
