Easy to make homemade mayonnaise.


  • 2 Large egg yolks
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil


  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard


Step 1 Place yolks, lemon juice and mustard in food processor or blender.
Step 2 While the processor is working, drizzle in your oil VERY slowly. Literally, one tiny drop at a time.
Step 3 Once your emulsion begins, you can start adding the oil more rapidly.
Step 4 Once your mayonnaise takes on the correct consistency, place in a mason jar and keep refrigerated.


We split our oil between coconut and olive for two reasons. First, if you only used coconut oil, then the mayo would become a rock in the refrigerator (coconut oil solidifies around 75-degrees). Second, if we only used olive oil, then our mayo would be way too strong.

You can also add fresh herbs to flavor your mayo, making delicious combinations.
