How To Make Low-Calorie Mayonnaise At Home
One tablespoon of the following low-calorie homemade mayonnaise recipe consists of only 88 calories so don’t be afraid to add it to your salads or use it as a sandwich spread daily. You can also use avocado oil or macadamia oil as substitutes if you like.
Ingredients for 3 servings
- 1 large egg yolk
- 5 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt to taste
Set all of your ingredients aside until they reach room temperature. Separate your egg white from your egg yolk and set it aside as well. Put the egg yolk into a bowl along with the Dijon mustard and 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Mix it until it is combined very well.
Get a hand whisk ready and begin pouring in your oil, make sure to add your oil in little by little while whisking. I highly recommend an electric hand whisker to prepare this recipe for better results. Make sure to continue whisking the mixture until you get a mayonnaise consistency.
Next, add in the lemon juice, salt, and the rest of your vinegar and continue whisking, if the mixture is too thick, you can add in a few drops of water or oil. Note: Your mayonnaise might become a little yellow in color. Store your mayonnaise in a well-sealed container and keep it in the fridge for up to a week.
