I’ve made this mayo a few times and love it. I spice it up with herbs or spicy peppers you can be very creative with it. Don’t be afraid to make your own you will impress yourself. I did!
There are healthier options for mayonnaise today but nothing is better than making your own with your special touch.
Homemade mayo tastes so much better than store bought, and it is much healthier because there are no trans- fats. In the video below they use use organic Virgin Coconut Oil, and organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. You want find a mayo that healthy in stores!
The hardest part about making fresh mayo is patience. Actually adding the oils can take up to five minutes or so.
Don’t feel bad if you mess a batch up – Actually my first batch did not turn out like I wanted. The next batch was perfect!
Put the first 6 ingredients in the blender and blend briefly. Just mix everything up but don’t over do it. Next, pour the two oils together into a liquid measuring cup with a spout and with the blender running on a low speed, start adding the oils into the blender in tiny drops working your way to a light stream about the size of a needle. Next increase the blender speed to a medium. If you add the oils too quickly the mayo will curdle and you will have an oil mess.
The mixture should start resembling a thicker beautiful mayonnaise!
Be creative using different types of mustard and peppers. I like spicy so I sometimes add some hot pepper flakes to mayo.
