SOLARA product used : Hand Blender

Mayonnaise, when consumed in moderation and made with wholesome ingredients such as vegetable oils like olive or sunflower oil, can offer several potential health benefits. It serves as a source of heart-healthy unsaturated fats, including omega-3 fatty acids, which contribute to improved cholesterol levels, reduced inflammation, and overall heart health. Additionally, mayonnaise provides vitamin E, an antioxidant that supports immune function and skin health. 


  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar
  • 1 cup neutral-flavored oil
  • Salt, to taste


Prepare Ingredients:

  • Gather all the ingredients and ensure they are at room temperature. It's essential for the ingredients to be at the same temperature to ensure proper emulsification.

 Combine Egg Yolk, Mustard, and Lemon Juice:

  • In a tall cup or blending jar that fits the head of your hand blender, add 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar.

Blend Until Smooth:

  •  Insert the hand blender into the cup and start blending at the bottom, slowly lifting the blender as the mixture begins to emulsify. Blend until the ingredients are well combined and smooth.

Slowly Add Oil:

  • With the hand blender running, slowly start pouring in the oil in a steady stream. Continue blending while gradually adding the oil until the mixture thickens and emulsifies into mayonnaise. This process should take about 1-2 minutes.

Season with Salt:

  • Once the mayonnaise reaches the desired consistency, season it with salt to taste and blend briefly to incorporate.

Adjust Consistency:

  • If the mayonnaise is too thick, you can adjust the consistency by adding a little bit of water or lemon juice and blending again until smooth.

Transfer and Store:

  • Transfer the homemade mayonnaise to a clean jar or container with a tight-fitting lid. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.


  • Use your homemade mayonnaise as a delicious spread, dressing, or dip in your favorite recipes!
