Say goodbye to store-bought mayo for good. When you taste how good my 1 Minute Homemade Mayonnaise is, you will be converted to homemade forever! This recipe comes together in literally one minute, with just a few, simple, easy, and healthy ingredients. And if you think you don't like mayo, then you need to try this recipe. I promise, you will change your mind!



  • 1 Egg room temperature
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 Pinch Sea Salt
  • 1 Cup Avocado Oil
  • 1 Clove Garlic grated; this is optional!


  • Start by adding all of your ingredients to the cup of your immersion blender, and let sit for a few minutes until they start to settle together. If your immersion blender didn’t come with a cup, then it’s important to use a cup that is only slightly larger than the blender itself. The blender needs to be able to tightly fit into the cup, in order for this recipe to emulsify properly. If you use a cup that is too big, this recipe will not work.
  • Next, take your immersion blender and place it into the cup, making sure that it is firmly against the bottom of the cup. This is VERY important – the blender must be touching the bottom of the cup!
  • Turn your blender on, and DO NOT let it move for approximately 10-15 seconds. It’s important that your blender remains as still as possible during this time. 
  • Once you see the mayonnaise begin to emulsify, then (and ONLY then), you can move the stick up and down the length of the cup, to fully combine the ingredients.
  • Once your ingredients are fully combined, remove your blender, taste, and adjust salt / mustard until your desired taste is achieved.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week, and enjoy!
