A Step-by-Step Guide to Making Healthy Organic Homemade Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is a staple in many kitchens, used in sandwiches, salads, and dips. However, store-bought mayonnaise often contains artificial preservatives, unhealthy oils, and added sugars. Making your own organic homemade mayonnaise ensures that you control the ingredients, making it a healthier option. It is also surprisingly easy and quick to make. Here’s how you can make your own healthy, organic homemade mayonnaise using simple ingredients.

healthy organic homemade mayonnaise


  • 1 organic egg at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon organic Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon organic red or white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt, or more to taste
  • 1 cup (240 ml) organic olive oil or organic avocado oil
  • Optional: 1-2 teaspoons organic honey or organic agave syrup for a touch of sweetness


  1. Combine the Ingredients: In a food processor or blender, combine the egg, mustard, vinegar, and salt. Process until well combined, about 20-30 seconds.
  2. Slowly Add the Oil: Scrape down the sides of the bowl, turn the food processor (or blender) on again, and start slowly drizzling the oil in a very thin stream. This should take about 3-4 minutes. Do not rush this step as adding the oil too quickly can cause the mayonnaise to break.
  3. Adjust the Seasoning: Once all the oil has been added and the mixture has emulsified, taste the mayonnaise and adjust the seasoning if necessary. If you prefer a sweeter mayonnaise, add 1-2 teaspoons of organic honey or agave syrup and blend until combined.
  4. Store: Transfer the mayonnaise to a clean jar with a tight-fitting lid and store in the refrigerator. It will keep for about 1-2 weeks.


  • Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature before starting.
  • Adjust the thickness of the mayonnaise by adding more or less oil. More oil will make it thicker, less oil will make it thinner.
  • Adjust the taste by adding more salt, vinegar, or sweetener as per your preference.


Making your own organic homemade mayonnaise is a quick and easy way to enjoy a healthier version of this popular condiment. By using organic ingredients and controlling the amount of oil, salt, and sweetener, you can create a mayonnaise that suits your taste and dietary needs. Remember to keep this homemade mayonnaise refrigerated since it doesn’t contain any preservatives like store-bought mayonnaise. Also, be aware that this recipe contains raw egg, which may not be suitable for everyone.
