Rated 5 out of 5 by Larkspur from Wow! Perfect, thick and creamy! I used avocado oil and just the yolks as in the recipe. I did drizzle the oil in a lot more slowly than in just 30 seconds and yes, it was warm when finished, but so thick and creamy. Actually, maybe too thick, but will be great to use for making salads - coleslaw, salmon, or potato, and I may just thin with a bit more oil or lemon juice for other uses. I also used a bit less mustard as I didn't want it to overpower the flavor. Very excited to have successfully emulsified a whole batch of mayo! My second try (a long time ago) and first success! Thanks Vitamix! I recently succeeded with blender Hollandaise too - so yummy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by urkiddingme from quick mayo, delicious, thick I wonder why so many reviews say this comes out runny. Mine comes out like I'm churning butter in there. I substitute avocado oil from Costco (Chosen Foods brand) for the canola oil, thinking it's healthier than most canola oils with their chemical processing. Or perhaps it has to be made in a Vitamix to get nice and thick? On the highest speed I'm done in 20-30 seconds with great results. It's the best, quickest, tasty mayo recipe I've found on the internet (although I found it originally in the Vitamix recipe book).

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 5 out of 5 by Valeska from Laziness paid off! Too hot and too lazy to go to the store for just Mayo, I doubled the recipe, it whipped up perfect.....AND.....will never buy Mayo again! Still using my at least 30 year old Vita Mix........ and just in case you want to know......the jar with the air-lock is full of Nasturtium seeds, fermenting -(Faux Capers).

Rated 5 out of 5 by hoofpawclaw from Smooth creamy and delicious Read the other reviews that state it is too runny or liquid. I just ran the blender a little while longer until the mayo had the consistency of mayo. It is beautiful! Worked like a charm. I didn't have dry mustard so I used 2 t of dijon and used olive oil. We love the flavor of olive oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cairo from NEVER buy the jarred stuff again! There is no comparison between fresh mayo and the jarred sort in the store. None. I actually like to mix equal parts fresh squeezed lemon juice and red wine vinegar in a small bowl and add kosher salt and freshly minced garlic. If you let the garlic stay in the mixture for a few minutes, the acid will gently "cook" the garlic to not make it so potent. I still add the dry mustard. I keep half of the batch as is, but for the other half, I put it in a food processor with a chipotle pepper in adobo + fresh cilantro to make chipotle aoli ... amazing on sandwiches, tacos, and even a dip for french fries!

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 5 out of 5 by Running GioGio from Thick and creamy In just minutes you get mayonaise perfect and healthy. I used half olive and grape seed oil and added some black pepper. Came out a light green. Flavourful and super creamy. I used to whisk it by hand, but seeing the results, Vitamix all the way. Worth the clean-up.
