- 3 pasteurized egg yolks
- 1-2 Tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 1/4 teaspoons dry mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon (3 ml) Dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 3/4 cup canola oil
- Place eggs, mustard, salt, and lemon juice into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
- Select Variable 1.
- Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High. Blend for 10 seconds.
- Reduce speed to Variable 8. While machine is running, remove the lid plug and pour in the oil in a thin, steady stream through the lid plug opening until completely used and mixture thickens (about 30 seconds).
- Stop machine and stir in any oil sitting on top.
- Refrigerate in separate container and use within 2-4 weeks.
This recipe has been written for the C-Series machines with Variable Speed control and Standard 64-ounce container. If you are using a different Vitamix machine or container size, you may need to make adjustments to the Variable Speed, processing time, and/or ingredient quantities.
Mayonnaise is rated out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandra from Yummy! I made a few changes because I do not usually have Canola oil on hand. I followed the recipe but used Avocado oil instead. First time I tried this it did not thicken up, luckily I still had the egg whites threw them in and voila it was perfect. Now when I make it I throw in the whole egg (3 like the recipe calls for) and follow the directions and I end up with awesome mayonnaise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Amber from Follow Sandra's Review! I about cried when I used the rest of my oil to make this, and the recipe was pure liquid!! I went back and read the reviews thinking, "What in the world," and added the egg whites! Boom. Worked. Thank you Sandra!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MoniqueA from Worked 3/4 times I've made this recipe 3 times and it came out perfect but today it just would not thicken. I tried the suggestion with the egg whites and it came out slightly thicker but still more like a ranch dressing consistency than mayo. Perhaps I let the machine run so long that the ingredients got hot? I'm not sure what the issue was but I'm pretty ticked off that I wasted a ton of avocado oil.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Moirraine from Not Enough Ingredients To Reach Blades Without Oil Wow... there wasn't enough of anything to mix at the bottom of the Vitamix. What a horrid recipe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nathaliedoo from Not perfect but - read on I tried two batches. Both came out too liquid and with both I added the egg whites. I think the mix turns out hot so maybe reduce speed would help. But I have to say the mayo became much thicker once colder and even almost perfect once refrigerated. So it was not a waste and tastes good. I even use the "liquid" leftovers to mix in a lobster salad. Will experiment once again because I think it can work and love fresh mayo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nancya from Great recipe I made two batches of this. For the first one, I followed the directions but used avocado oil. For the second batch, I substituted apple cider vinegar for the lemon juice and omitted the dijon mustard, and also used avocado oil. Both came out delicious. I had no problem with the mixture thickening. Make sure you use room temperature egg yolks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jacob from Got hot on me. I followed the speed instruction and the liquid got hot on me about half way though. Also, at what rate should the oil be poured? How long should it take to pour 1.5 cups oil? Three minutes?

Can't conditions such as rainy or humid weather cause a mayo to fail?
No it is usually just the speed of incorporation or adding to much oil. A good bet is adding no more than 5 ounces of oil per egg yolk.

I have the Vitamix 750, what speed should I use for the mayonnaise?
This recipe should be doubled when using the 750 and use variable speed 4 to incorporate the oil.
