You Will Never Eat Hellmann's Again

I found this Healthy Mayo recipe online and I just loved it!
I had stopped eating mayo years ago because the industrialized one (Hellmann's) is so fat and full of chemical products that my body couldn't take it. So I tried this recipe and fell in love with mayo again.

I have made a few changes to the original recipe, to make it lighter (in terms of oil and salt):

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp of lemon juice (I just use the bottled one)
  • 2/3 cup extra light tasting olive oil
Put the olive oil in the hand blender's jar, then the egg. Wait until the egg settles in the bottom. Add the lemon juice and blend until it has the consistency of mayo.

You can keep this in the fridge for about a week.

IMPORTANT: as explained on the Healthy Foodie's website, you must use a jar that is very narrow. I have tried with a wider jar and it comes out too runny.
