Paleo Miracle Mayo
If you're not a fan of traditional mayonnaise, and prefer a sweeter version (think Miracle Whip), then this is the mayo for you. Sweetened with a bit of honey, this mayo makes a great transition from the store-bought stuff for the picky eaters in your life.
Servings: 2 cups
- 2 Large Eggs room temperature
- 4 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice room temperature
- 1 to 1-1/2 Tbsp Honey
- 1 tsp Dry Mustard
- 1 tsp Sea Salt
- 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
- 1/4 tsp Smoked Paprika optional, but so delicious
- 2 1/2 cups Avocado Oil or Light/Extra Light Olive Oil NOT extra virgin*, divided
Place the eggs and lime juice in a blender (I use a Blendtec) or food processor.
Add the honey, dry mustard, salt, pepper, paprika, and 1/2 cup of the olive oil. Blend/process until well mixed, about 20 to 30 seconds. If you're using a Blendtec, use the Speed 3 button for the entire process.
With the blender/food processor still running, start pouring the remaining 2 cups of olive oil SLOWLY through the opening in your blender/processor lid. Seriously, slowly, just a thin stream.
Continue until all the oil is done. Never dump it, even at the end. Keep a SLOW, steady stream the whole time. This may take up to 4 to 5 minutes.
When all the oil is done, remove the lid and look at the glorious, mayo you just made. Then stick it in the fridge and wait at least an hour before using it. The process of making the mayo warms it up, and it tastes so much better when it's cold.
Keep the mayo in the fridge, it expires when your eggs do.
- PLEASE do not use extra virgin olive oil for this recipe, only a mild tasting oil (avocado oil from Costco is our favorite). The flavor is too powerful in EVOO and you will not like the taste of mayo made with it. I made that mistake once (and only once), so learn from me.
