Tips

  • Avocado takes center stage in this recipe, so be sure to pick the perfect avocados. Choose a very dark green color with bumpy skin that is soft when you touch it, but not mushy.
  • If you’re buying avocados a few days in advance, choose one that is just starting to turn dark green and is only slightly soft when you press it. Avocados like this will be ready to use in 4-5 days.
  • Choose a mayonnaise that you like the taste of. The avocado will add to the flavor you already enjoy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is avocado mayonnaise healthy?

Avocados themselves are very healthy, containing many nutrients and good-for-you monounsaturated fats. Your avocado mayo will be as healthy as the mayonnaise you use.

What is in store bought avocado mayonnaise?

Mayonnaise purchased from a store is regular mayonnaise made with avocado oil instead of other types of oil. The rest of the ingredients are the same, including egg yolks and vinegar.

Does avocado mayonnaise have eggs?

This recipe begins with mayonnaise that you make or buy. So if that mayonnaise has eggs, then yes, this mayonnaise contains eggs.
If you use an egg-free mayonnaise, then it will not contain eggs.

How to Store

  • At Room Temperature – This can be left sitting at room temperature for up to two hours. It does contain mayonnaise, so follow rules for maintaining mayonnaise safety.
  • Refrigerate – Avocado Mayo can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. To keep the avocados from browning as much, press plastic wrap over the mayonnaise so it touches the surface of the mayo.
  • Freeze – Freezing will change the consistency of the avocado mayonnaise, so it will not work well if you want to use thawed mayo to spread on sandwiches, etc. However, if you plan on using the mayonnaise in a sauce that will be cooked, then freeze in an airtight container until ready to use for cooking later.

What to Do with Leftovers

  • Avocado mayo will turn brown when the avocados react with air. Press plastic wrap on the surface of the mayo to reduce browning, and store in the fridge. When you’re ready to use again, stir the browned top into the mayonnaise – it’s safe to eat even though it is brown. Or you can scrape the brown mayo off of the top.
  • Freeze the leftover avocado mayo in ice cube trays. The small portion size can be used to melt over vegetables or add to a pasta sauce.
