Easy Blender Mayonnaise

I am looking forward to fresh garden vegetables!  Lettuce, spinach, onions, tomatoes, they all taste so good and make meal prep in the summer so easy.  My family is very happy to be served these wonderful vegetables every day all summer long in various combinations, but the favourite is with mayonnaise.  Maybe it's the Belgian blood.  This was all fine until I realized that store bought mayonnaise is not very healthy.  I have been reading labels more often lately and I don't always like what I see!
 Learning to make homemade mayonnaise has been on my to-do list for over 25 years now.  I had been told it was easy but when ever I tried it didn't work, it would always separate into a lumpy, oily mess! It has been quite a while now since I had attempted but I have done some research and decided to try again.  Success!  I figured out the secret, all ingredients must be at room temperature! Maybe I had been told this before, I don't remember.  Often this is the way it is, things are easy once you know the trick.  So basic mayonnaise is egg, oil, salt and either vinegar or lemon juice then you can add any spices or seasonings you like.

Easy Blender Mayonnaise 

**All ingredients must be at room temperature **
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard 
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey(optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika 
  • Dash onion powder 
  • Dash garlic powder 
  • 1 cup avocado oil
Place all ingredients except oil in blender and process for 30 seconds.  Cover (the lid for many blenders have a whole for adding liquids). With the blender running add oil in a thin, continuous stream.  Mixture will thicken.  Adjust seasonings to taste.  Refrigerate for up to two weeks.
