One taste of this healthy avocado mayo, and you might never want to go back to regular mayonnaise again!

Avocado Mayo Recipe

Have You Tried Avocado Mayonnaise Yet?

What might have started out as just a crazy health food fad has suddenly gone mainstream.

I’ve recently noticed that even big brands such as Kraft and Hellman’s are now offering their own versions in regular grocery stores.

As someone who loves both avocados and mayonnaise, I’m honestly surprised it’s taken me this long to get on board.

But now that I’m hooked, there’s no looking back.

Hopefully you will love this easy and super healthy avocado mayo recipe as much as I do.

Ways To Use This Avocado Mayo

I’m not going to tell you that I was eating it straight from the blender with a spoon.

And I’m definitely not going to tell you that I was licking the blender blades and recommend you do the same.

You didn’t hear that.

What I am going to tell you is that this creamy avocado mayo can be used in many of the same ways you’d use regular mayo, including spreading it on top of sandwiches, adding it to potato or pasta salads, spooning it over tacos or roasted vegetables, or using it as a dip for oven baked french fries.

People often ask how I come up with my recipes.

In the case of this mayonnaise, I literally looked up the ingredients of regular mayonnaise (oil, water, eggs, vinegar, salt, sugar, lemon, natural flavors) and used those same ingredients but substituted avocado for the egg and omitted the sugar.

I played around with amounts until happy with the taste and thickness, then I decided to throw in a little onion and garlic powder because I thought it still needed something, and those are my go-to spices.

Out of curiosity, I made a second version with extra water instead of the oil, and I thought both versions were completely delicious.

Then came the aforementioned part where I definitely didn’t eat it straight from the blender.

No, definitely not.

    Wow, that actually sounds really good. I’m not a fan of mayo (I actually detest it, preferring to use Greek yogurt as a substitute), but I might try this. I like how you’re using more water and less oil, since one of the hard parts about avocado for me is the intense fatty taste of it (even though avocado is a fat, it doesn’t taste like a fat). Awesome! Thanks, Katie!

  2. Jane Grasso says

    This sounds great but I’m the only one in the house who eats mayonnaise. How long will it keep? I like mayo on certain things but even with regular commercial mayonnaise I sometimes end up throwing it out because it is beyond the freshness date. Of course with this mayo I use mayo more frequently since it does have fewer calories and is much healthier.

  3. Lindsay says

    This looks delicious! I see it says it keeps 3-4 days in the fridge…have you had any issues with the avocado browning/oxidizing during that time? I love making guacamole and am always so bummed when I make a bunch and it’s brown and gross in the next day or two. Thanks, Katie, and keep up the awesome recipe writing!

    • Jason Sanford says

      Katie put it in the jar (in the photos), stuck half a lemon on top as the lid so it was sealed but not too tightly, and stuck it in the fridge, and what was left was still mostly green three days later. Citric acid helps to delay the oxidation, so the lemon in this recipe definitely helps with that.

    • Claire R. says

      Did you know that avocado won’t turn brown as long as you keep the whole seed in the jar. I learned this in Hawaii.

  4. Ela says

    Katie! It looks so smooth and creamy! I love everything with avo and actually made avocado hummus yesterday. 🙂
    Much love, Ela

  5. Cassie Thuvan Tran says

    Growing up, I HAAAAAAAAAAAAAATED mayonnaise. I still hate mayonnaise, even veganaise, to be honest. I think avocado mayonnaise would taste better given that it might not have such a weirdly pungent and sour after-taste, so I’ll give it a chance. Avocado is already a heavenly food, so I love how simple this recipe is to exude avocado’s singular glory!

  6. Tischa Culver says

    I loved this recipe. I made some modifications. I put a little more avocado and a little less water, also a little more vinegar.

  7. Irene Bevilacqua says

    I just made this and it is excellent. I probably used a bit more than 2/3 cup of avocado. It was 1 whole organic avocado. And I watch salt so I left it out. I also used 1 tbs of water and 1 tbs of olive oil instead of 2 tbs of oil. Everything else was as you listed. Put it in my Blendtec for 20 seconds. It’s wonderful. And I’ve been hooked Vegenaise but this may actually take its place. Thank you!!!!

  8. Todd M says

    Am going to try this to smear on the Veggie Burger recipe I just printed from here! I wonder if you could use this as a substitute for mayo in egg salad or potato salad?

  9. Nancy says

    My cholesterol is elevated so I love your recipes have tried many but am using them more My son-in-law wants to eat healthier so he’s trying recipes everyone liked the mayo I will use it instead of regular mayo thank you Katie

  10. David A Binder, MD says

    First: Thank you!! I am enjoying your recipes and especially like the vegan cream cheese. I made it with cashew flour, adding 1/4 cup boiling water and mixing well. I removed the salt and vinegar. The lemon juice adds sufficient acidity for salt flavor. The result is 10 mg salt per 2 tablespoon serving. Nice!
    Second: your Avocado Mayonnaise recipe tasted off to me. I found 3/4 teaspoon onion powder too strong and 1/8 garlic powder too weak. Next time I will use 1/4 teaspoon onion powder and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. I removed the salt. There is sufficient acidity from the lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. I used 3 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon at a time to the blender. The result is quite nice!
    Third: I made your veggie burger recipe. I used tomato paste and substituted The Spice House [] No-Salt Cajun Spice (1 teaspoon) for the salt. WOW! I was a beef eater but now, you’ve hooked me.
    Keep up the GREAT work you’re doing. Discovering the secrets of eating healthy, great-tasting food is a joy!

  11. Lydia Douglas says

    Made it today. Amazing,had it with my egg salad sandwich. I didn’t have any lemon juice or garlic powder. I did however have polish grainy mustard. We usually have djon but ran out. and added a little more onion powder.OMG is so good. I pinned it to my board pre-diabeties update and easy to cook anything. Thanks so much for this recipe. I incorporta alot of avocados as it does keep you fuller longer and is an excellent source. A little expensive but well worth it..

  12. Lizzie says

    This is absolutely amazing in place of mayo in salmon Patties. It gave it another layer of flavor that was out of this world.

  13. Julia says

    Hello! This recipe sounds great! Unfortunately, I am not always able to get avocados. Would it be possible to substitute the avocado with greek yogurt? Or would the vinegar curdle it? Would I need to add less water?

    • Jason Sanford says

      We haven’t tried, so unfortunately we honestly don’t have any idea. Be sure to report back if you experiment!

  14. Ericka says

    I read the recipe wrong and did 2 tbsp of mayo still so good! I will definitely do it again with oil instead of the mayo.

  15. Yolande Kirton says

    I’m beyond ecstatic with this Vegan Avocado Mayo Recipe!! Can I say that “YES” I licked the blades of my handy dandy mixer!! My new go to taco sauce… well whenever sauce!! Store bought can’t compare with this!! Love how I can add a lil extra kick with my Caribbean pepper sauce!! Thank You so much for sharing!! I will be checking out all your offering in the future!! YUMMMMY

  16. Beck says

    This is soooo good!
    I wanted it a bit tangier so I added a bit more white vinegar and a bit of powder mustard. Next time I will just do more white vinegar and less lemon with the mustard powder.

  17. Carol says

    Very delicious for the oil I used avocado oil my whole family loved their blts tonight it was quick and easy to whip up. Also I was out of lemon juice so I used lime juice instead it worked out great

  18. Brenda says

    This is absolutely delicious. It is my go to for mayonnaise. Way, way better than the store bought crap. I used it to make cauliflower salad, on a sandwich, as a dip for french fries the list is long. If you use your imagination you can use it on anything that you would use store bought mayonnaise for. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe. I would like to make your veggie burger and am not sure what I can use as a replacement for the tomato paste as I have a severe tomato allergy. Either you will have a suggestion or I will have to figure it out. Maybe plum sauce… we will see. Otherwise they also sound delicious.

    • CCK Media Team says

      It’s not a big amount, so subbing something else (anything you like the flavor of) with similar texture should be fine :).

  19. Brenda says

    I love, love, love this recipe. It’s my go to recipe for mayo. It’s good on everything. Thank you so much! Definitely a keeper and is saved to my tried and true recipes.

  20. Jackie Nordeman says

    While I haven’t used it for anything yet, I can join the club of “blade lickers”🤣 I didn’t actually but I did lick the spatula and it’s so creamy and yummy! And I don’t even like avocados that much.

  21. Cleo Burrows says

    I really love the taste of this. I added a bit of Dijon mustard and about 1.5 tbsp of non-fat Greek yogurt. I’m curious whether this can stand being frozen as this recipe makes quite a bit for one person.

  22. Janet says

    5 stars
    Daggone, this is amazing! I do not like avocado but every several months or so i TRY to convince myself that there HAS GOT TO BE some way i can incorporate them in my diet. THIS is that way! I made broccoli cole slaw, wraps, shrimp stuffing for fish. YUM!

  23. Monica says

    5 stars
    I’m so glad that I found this recipe!
    It’s everything she says it will be… plus I also use it to make a Caesar salad dressing (which is finger licking good)by blending all of the ingredients above… then adding a couple of garlic cloves, a dash of Dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce, a couple of more spoons of oil and water, and a few capers an anchovies.

    100 stars, thank you! This avo mayo recipe is truly delicious and makes my way of eating a delight! Also, I didn’t lick the blender residue either 😉

    Ahhhh you weren’t kidding about licking the blender, I laughed out loud when I realized that’s exactly what I was about to do. This is beyond good, I can’t wait to use it on Kenji’s Really Awesome Black Bean Burgers this evening!

    • CCK Media Team says

      We haven’t tried it so honestly don’t know what it would taste like. Be sure to reply back if you do try!

    Such a good (and delicious) way to use up left over avocado without the remnants becoming sad and brown after a few hours in the fridge. Great for vegan friends, too.

  29. Cydney says

    5 stars
    Awesome recipe! I cannot stomach store bought alternative mayos. I added some full fat coconut milk from a can (maybe 1/4 cup or less) came out to perfect consistency and the flavour is awesome. Tested before coconut addition and great both ways. This just added a bit of smoothness with a hint of sweet.
