Many people don't attempt making their own homemade mayonnaise because they feel its quite a chore. In the olden days it involved a lot of whisking and slowly, slowly pouring oil into an egg & vinegar mixture.  Thanks to a food processor it makes the task much faster.  Less than a minute, in fact. Enjoy :)

White vinegar could be substituted with lemon juice or apple cider vinegar.  Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature.  If you don't have a food processor feel free to use your stick blender :)

One minute low carb mayonnaise ingredients:

  •     1 whole egg
  •     2 egg yolks
  •     1 tablespoon mustard
  •     1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  •     1/2 teaspoon salt
  •     1/4 teaspoon pepper
  •     1/2 cup Virgin Coconut Oil (melted if solid)
  •     1/2 cup "lite" olive oil

One minute low carb mayonnaise preparation instructions:

1.  Place the first six ingredients in food processor bowl.
2.  Measure the oil and have it ready.
3.  Turn the processor on and once the egg is mixed, begin pouring the oil through the feed tube while it’s still running (keep on low speed).
4.  Start with a thin stream and increase the flow until all the oil is incorporated.
5.  The mayonnaise should be done by the time all the oil is in, but run it a few more seconds if it’s not thick enough.  
6.  Store in refrigerator in an air tight container for up to ten days.
7.  If you are going to be needing the mayonnaise and the coconut oil has gone hard from the coldness in the fridge, scoop some in a little bowl and stand in a pan of warm water- never microwave! Your mayo will look like mayo once more :)
 
I think homemade mayonnaise is a lovely treat and anything made at home always tastes better than shop bought.  If you make this let  me know what you think.  Your comments and suggestions are always welcome!
