Healthy Homemade Mayonnaise Recipe #2

This mayonnaise recipe is made with only coconut oil and sets up very thick! The addition of the whey will add healthy probiotics to this mayo, making it last longer and will add enzymes and increase nutrient content.

  • 1 Egg Yolk, at room temperature
  • 1 Teaspoon of Mustard
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 3/4 Cup of Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon of Whey
  • Pinch of Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. In food processor or blender, blend first four ingredients until smooth.
  2. With motor running, slowly pour oil into egg mixture.
  3. Add whey and mix until blended.
  4. Season mayonnaise to your preference.
  5. Cover tightly and leave out on counter for 7 hours before refrigerating.
  6. Mayonnaise will keep several months in refrigerator.

 

Homemade Mayonnaise #2
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 Whole Egg, at room temperature
  • 1 Egg Yolk, at room temperature
  • 1 Teaspoon of Mustard
  • 1½ Tablespoons of Fresh Lemon Juice
  • ¾ Cup of Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon of Whey
  • Pinch of Salt and Pepper
Instructions
  1. In food processor or blender, blend first four ingredients until smooth.
  2. With motor running, slowly pour oil into egg mixture.
  3. Add whey and mix until blended.
  4. Season mayonnaise to your preference.
  5. Cover tightly and leave out on counter for 7 hours before refrigerating.
  6. Mayonnaise will keep several months in refrigerator.

 

This makes for a very thick mayonnaise! You will want to leave it at room temperature for 30 minutes before using. You may also use refined coconut oil if you don’t like the sweet taste of virgin coconut oil.

If you prefer not to use whey, you may leave it out of recipe and refrigerate mayonnaise immediately (mayonnaise will only keep for a week without whey).

The addition of whey will help your mayonnaise to last longer, add enzymes, and increase nutrient content of mayonnaise.

    I have purchased some amazing (but expensive) avocado oil, although I also use a lot of coconut oil. I’m wondering about making mayo with it. Have you ever worked with it?

    Hi, I made the coconut mayo but I did not like the fact that it goes really hard in the fridge 🙁 The second recipe calls for a mixture of coconut oil and olive oil – does this mean that it will not get so hard in the fridge? also, can I add whey to it as well? Thanks!

    I have made Mayo #1, but without the coconut oil. What does the addition of coconut oil do for the recipe?

    I love everything coconut and your site is one of the best. That said, I am vegan and a senior on a limited budget. I think I may be speaking for others when I say that I think you would pick up a good number of new regulars if below the recipes you post, you were to post TRIED and successful vegan alternatives. I, for one, would be uberly grateful. I often post your non vegan recipes with a * and a note to veganize. However, if people are on a limited budget, it is nice to have the vegan tweak be a tried and true tweak. For what it’s worth!! Great work , Coconut Mama! Keep it up…and hopefully expand to include us vegans! ^ – ^
