Since I’ve been doing the 21 Day Superhero Challenge, I have stepped up my game on reading the ingredients on common items that I buy. One of those things is mayonnaise, the other is ranch dressing.
When I make homemade mayonnaise, I like to add LIME to my recipe. Most homemade mayo recipes call for lemons. I just prefer the taste of limes- they are a little sweeter. I also like to add a little bit of Mexican flair to it by adding garlic powder and chili powder. The small amounts of them that I add really do make a difference. Also, the Spice Lab- Citrus Sea Salt is amazing! I picked mine up at TJ Maxx and my local one seems to always have a jar for like $4.99. If you see it, GRAB IT! It’s great in and on LOTS of things!
- 1 cup Avocado Oil
- 1 egg
- 2 small limes (or one large on)
- 1/4 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt
- Pour oil into a container (bowl or mason jar) that has a wide mouth.
- Squeeze the juice of the lime(s) into the container.
- Add the egg
- Add the chili powder, garlic powder and salt
- Blend with an immersion blender.
- Within seconds you will notice that it will whip up into mayonnaise. Make sure and lift the blender out a little so that you can combine all the oil.
- Store in the refrigerator in an air tight container for up to two weeks. I recommend a mason jar- that's how mine lasts two weeks. Usually it's gone in days though!
I also use this mayo as the base to make my Paleo Ranch Dressing!
That recipe will be posted this week, so keep an eye out for it!
Have you ever paid attention to the long lists of ingredients in some of the common condiments that we buy? Most of them have sugar, super processed oils and a list of a whole bunch of other things I know don’t belong in there. I challenge you to read the ingredients on the things you buy!
