If you need to whip up some paleo-friendly mayo for your latest sandwich masterpiece in a hurry, then I’ve got just the thing for you. This quick and easy 3-minute avocado mayo recipe has come through for me when I’m low on supplies. The mayo is made with a handful of super tasty ingredients—avocados, garlic powder, onion powder, apple cider vinegar, etc. What this means is that you not only end up with one great tasting mayo to add to your favorite sandwich, but unlike most store-bought jars of mayo, this version is full of beneficial ingredients that promote health and wellness.
One of the great things about the paleo diet is how it can be adapted to meet the needs of so many different people. It doesn’t matter what kind of lifestyle you lead; it can be adapted to fit yours, too. My vegan friends are the same way with the vegan diet; they’ve shown me time and time again how veganism could work for me. This is one of the recipes they showed me as proof of that, and what better way to convince me than with an excellent mayo recipe? I’m a shameless mayo fan so there’s really no such thing as too much mayo with me. This recipe is made with raw macadamia nuts, avocado oil, Himalayan pink salt, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, and a fresh date. It’s loaded with healthy fats, essential vitamins and minerals, so it’s good for you without a doubt. But the flavor itself is absolutely fantastic. Definitely a favorite for me!
Mayonnaise is easily one of my favorite condiments for sandwiches, especially when I make my own homemade paleo mayo. Since I use it on everything, store-bought mayo just wouldn’t do. I prefer my own so I can enjoy it as often as I want, guilt-free. One of my go to recipes as of late has been this healthy paleo mayo with avocado oil recipe. It’s made entirely from scratch, avoiding many of the processed ingredients usually found in store-bought mayos. Using avocado oil as the base of the recipe is a fantastic choice as well, considering it’s packed full of heart healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, along with an abundance of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. As soon as you try out this mayo, don’t be surprised when you find yourself craving sandwiches every day. I use every excuse I can to use this up!
There’s honestly nothing that I love more than spicy food especially when I have a cold. It warms me up from the inside and helps me clear up my sinuses in no time at all. Truly nature’s best medicine, and with a slew of health benefits to boot including a faster metabolism, anti-inflammatory benefits, and more. Thankfully, I’ve got a vast repertoire of healthy recipes that I can turn to when I’m feeling under the weather. Recipes just like this one for making an addictive spicy sriracha mayo to go with just about anything. I love this on Asian-inspired salads and of course, sandwiches. The paleo sriracha adds just the right amount of fiery kick to the mayo to make it addicting.
I usually follow a paleo diet most of the time, but I’m also a big fan of the Whole30 diet because it’s sustainable for me and gives great results. It’s pretty similar to the paleo diet too, so I don’t have to make too many adjustments. This mayo recipe fits the Whole30 diet with its low carbs and nutrient-dense profile, not to mention it fits my mommy lifestyle as well—quick and easy to make at just 3 minutes with minimal clean-up. Don’t let the short list of ingredients fool you though—the mixture of lemon juice, mustard powder, and avocado oil all work together to ensure that this mayo is full of flavor.
In order to make paleo-friendly mayonnaise recipes from scratch, you’re going to have to use eggs…most of the time. For any of our readers out there who have a sensitivity to eggs, this one is for you. I first discovered this recipe when I was looking for egg-free recipes for one of my guests. She has an egg allergy, so whenever she comes over, I make sure to make something that everyone will love without making her feel left out. The mayo part in recipes used to stump me because I felt that the recipes I found online didn’t quite do the trick, so I adapted them and made this version with coconut butter and olive oil (aim for authentic extra-virgin olive oil). These together give me the texture I’m looking for as well as the heart-healthy benefits. Seasoned with garlic powder and lemon juice, this egg-free mayo ended up so much better than expected and has quickly become the go-choice even among my guests who have no problems with consuming eggs.
I’ve always been a hardcore mayonnaise addict. Ever since I was a kid, I was loading my sandwiches up with the stuff. And if I’m being perfectly honest, I was more than a little worried about missing my beloved mayo when I first switched over to a healthier diet. Thankfully, I was worried about nothing, because there are so, so many wonderful mayo recipes out there that fit any healthy lifestyle. Take this 2-clove garlic paleo mayo for example. You only need a handful of ingredients to make it, but it’s the addition of the two garlic cloves that really make this recipe. It adds that potent garlic flavor that we all know and love, but without the fillers and additives in store-bought mayo. This goes great on sandwiches, as salad dressing, as dip, or even as a base for sauces and soups. It’s quite versatile if you can get creative with it!
Oh wait, I lied. I just had a distinct flashback to being 7 years old and asking my grandparents to make me a “mayonnaise sandwich”. And when I say “mayonnaise sandwich” that’s really what I mean – just mayonnaise and bread *shudder*. Maybe that’s why I avoided it for so long afterwards, I’m pretty sure…
Mayonnaise might seem like it’s Paleo at first glance, after all it’s mostly eggs and oil blended together. But understanding what it means to eat Paleo means getting down to each ingredient and sizing it up for purity. The quality of the mayo is what is most important here, and that involves using oils that…
