Egg Free Mayonnaise Recipe

I didn't get great photos of the mayonnaise, but boy, it sure tastes good! It is easy to make, and much less expensive than store-bought vegan mayonnaise.
Egg Free Mayonnaise (vegan)
Makes 3/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup soaked cashews*
1/2 cup filtered water
1 Tbsp lemon juice
3/4 Tbsp agave nectar
1/2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 - 2/3 cup cold pressed extra virgin olive oil

Add all ingredients except olive oil to VitaMix and blend. With blender running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil through the little opening in the top of the VitaMix lid until you achieve the desired consistency.

*Raw (not roasted) cashews. Cashews only need to soak for about 4 hours, but overnight is OK if that is easier.

Health benefits of: cashews, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, lemonsea salt, agave nectar

  1. How long would this keep? Looks great!

  2. Kelly, I'm not sure, but I'm going to guess it will keep about a week. The nice thing is it doesn't make too much, so you can use it up quickly! And it's super easy to mix up again when you need more : )

  3. Hi! I've been having trouble getting my mayo (using all different recipes, not just yours) to thicken... do you think my blender is the issue? I'm wondering if it's just not fast enough... or if I should add some kind of thickener?

  4. Gosh, Lisa, I'm not sure. I've made two mayo recipes- one (with eggs) in my food processor, and this one in the VitaMix. They both thickened just fine, and I didn't add anything to thicken. From what I've read about making mayo, the s l o w drizzling of the olive oil is key. BTW, I am so excited to see a comment from you, I love your blog : ) Tasha

    1. Could I use pine nuts instead of cashews? Its what I have on hand. BTW. Sorry if this appears twice, my original post seems to have disappeared.
