This Avocado Mayonnaise is a healthy creamy mayo made from avocado instead of eggs.
It’s an egg-free mayo with healthy fats from avocado and avocado oil, perfect for spreading on sandwiches.
Mayo lovers, I have big news for you! You can make no-fail mayonnaise without eggs using a ripe avocado.
I know this sounds unbelievable, but avocado mayonnaise does taste like the real thing, if not better.
I love a regular mayo recipe, but real mayonnaise contains eggs, and store-bought mayo is often made with unhealthy vegetable oils.
So my new favorite mayonnaise recipe is this simple 5-minute green mayonnaise made from avocado.
How To Make Avocado Mayo
Don’t worry. It’s easy to make this mayonnaise recipe. You can’t fail. There’s no risk of the mixture splitting like with egg mayo recipes.
All you need to make this creamy, rich, healthy mayonnaise are:
- Ripe Avocado – Pick avocados that are slightly soft to the touch and if you remove the stem of the avocado, it should be vibrant green, not brown. The choice of the avocado is the most important part of this recipe. If your avocado has black dark spots, remove and discard them. Don’t use avocado that has already formed filaments either.
- Avocado Oil – This is the healthiest oil with olive oil for healthy mayonnaise recipes.
- Sea Salt
- Lemon Juice from a fresh lemon for the best flavor. Feel free to use lime juice to vary the flavors.
- Dijon Mustard
- Ground Pepper
- Garlic – optional, this adds an aioli flavor.
First, open the avocado and scrape down its flesh. It should be vibrant green and soft with no black or dark spots. If there’s a dark spot, discard it, or the mayonnaise will taste bitter and turn darker.
Measure the amount of avocado in a measuring cup before adding to the food processor.
You need a food processor or a NutriBullet smoothie blender for this recipe.
Add all the ingredients to the bowl of the food processor, and start with the minimum amount of water.
Process on medium speed until smooth and creamy.
You may have to stop the food processor a few times to scrape down the side of the bowl and repeat until no lumps of avocado can be seen.
Thin out the mayonnaise by adding water gradually. Stop when it reaches your favorite consistency.
Adjusting The Flavors
Of course, you can add some spices to add flavor to this mayonnaise recipe.
For example, great addition are:
- 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder or one fresh crushed garlic clove.
- 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
- One pinch of spicy powder like cayenne pepper, chili powder, or red chili flakes.
- More lemon juice for a tangy flavor
- More avocado oil for a creamy texture
This avocado mayo must be stored in the fridge in a sealed, airtight container to keep its vibrant green color. It won’t darken if it’s stored in a container that is sealed from air.
If it accidentally turns a bit brown, stir before serving. It stores for up to 3 days in the fridge.
You can use this avocado mayo recipe for any dish you usually use regular mayonnaise.
Serve this for dipping meat, roasted vegetables, or as a spread to sandwiches.
My favorite food combination with this avocado mayo are some of the recipes below:
- Blackened Chicken
- Cast-Iron Chicken
- Keto Chicken Nuggets
- Almond Flour Chicken Tenders
- Roasted Cauliflower
- Oven-Roasted Potatoes
- Greek Fries
- Homemade Pita Chips
- Homemade Tortilla
If you have some food allergies, here are some ingredient swap ideas for you.
- Oil-Free – You can swap the oil for plain yogurt, sour cream, or water.
- Lemon Juice – If you have a citrus allergy, try apple cider vinegar instead.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Avocado Mayo Healthy?
Yes, homemade avocado mayo is healthier than store-bought mayonnaise.

Of course, you can make healthy mayo like avocado oil mayo at home, but still, the amount of oil and egg yolk is not the healthiest.
Therefore, this mayo made from avocado is a healthy alternative and a no-fail one.
Can I Use An Immersion Blender?
You can blend this mayo recipe with an immersion blender if you place the ingredients in a tall narrow glass or jug that just fits the immersion tool’s diameter.
