No-Fail Paleo Mayo

Never buy Mayonnaise again!! Seriously! Never buy mayonnaise ever again!!

Have you ever looked at the list of ingredients on the mayonnaise label? Lots of words I can't pronounce, not to mention there is sugar in nearly every brand.

Well, a while back I found this recipe online at The Healthy Foodie for NO FAIL MAYO. The trick is in the tools you use.

First you need to have an immersion stick mixer. It is hand held and looks like a wand.
Mine disconnects on the middle and is easily put in the dishwasher to clean. I inherited my mixer from my mom however over the years I have seen immersion mixers at Goodwill for $4 to $5. Always plug them in to make sure they work before you buy it at Goodwill. If you don't have this tool then don't attempt to make mayo using this recipe. It probably won't work!

Next you need a wide mouth pint mayonnaise jar or other jar or cup that can accommodate the immersion mixer all the way to the bottom of the cup/jar. I like an old mayo jar because it has a lid that can store my mayo.

No-Fail Mayonnaise
immersion mixer


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup extra lite olive oil
  • 1 Tbls Lemon or Lime Juice
  • dash sea salt, to taste
  • garlic powder (optional)


  1. Put all ingredients in the wide mouth mayonnaise jar.
  2. Place immersion mixer in bottom of the jar and turn on.
  3. Hold the mixer in place at the bottom of the jar for a full 20 seconds.
  4. Watch as the ingredients emulsify before your eyes.
  5. At the end of 20 seconds move the mixer up and down to incorporate the rest of the olive oil into the mayonnaise.
  6. This is where you add a little garlic or other seasoning such as chipolte or taco seasoning to flavor your mayo if you like. 
  7. BAM!! DONE
Another easy recipe with a few ingredients you can pronounce and no added sugar.
Enjoy good food!

I made this last night. Couldn't believe how easy it was. When I was a kid, my mother sometimes made mayonnaise in the blender but it was tricky to get it to emulsify and I remember not liking it very much. So I had a mental block about making my own mayo. It's true. Now I will never buy mayonnaise again.

This recipe is amazing and you will not believe the flavor. I used farm fresh eggs and my mayo is yellow with just the one very rich yolk. Sorry, Kraft, won't be buying you anymore, this is just too easy, fresh, and so very good. I have made mayo in my food processor and it is good but if you aren't careful, it curdles and you have wasted all the ingredients. This will forever be my go-to recipe for mayo.
Many thanks, Linda
