Smoky Garlic Mayo

I’m having a thing with mayo lately.  I just can’t get enough.  It’s weird because I NEVER liked mayo as a kid.  I would use mustard on my sandwiches because I couldn’t stand mayo.

So it’s weird that I want to put it on All. The. Things. Smoky Garlic Mayo | Life Healthfully Living

I know I have mayo already on my blog and to be honest, I just made it as a part of my DIY series because I knew a lot of people liked mayo.  My obsession with the stuff didn’t start until a few weeks ago when my sister made this mayo for a family BBQ.  She added some chipotle seasoning and garlic and it was awesome.  The rest of the food at the BBQ simply became a vehicle to get the mayo in my mouth.

So I started experimenting with variations of her mayo.  When I had the crazy idea to add liquid smoke I struck mayo gold.  Garlic-y smoky gold.  I’ve already used this mayo in TWO other recipes I have coming to the blog soon.  Just do yourself a favor and make some now and become obsessed with me. Smoky Garlic Mayo | Life Healthfully Living

I’m not exactly sure how long this mayo will last in normal people’s houses because it lasts less than a week around here.  So if you get the chance, let me know 😉

Smoky Garlic Mayo- Based on The Healthy Foodie’s Foolproof Homemade Mayo Smoky Garlic Mayo | Life Healthfully Living

  • 1 cup avocado oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke (this is the kind I use)
  • 4 cloves garlic (half that if you want less of a garlic punch)
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper

* NOTE: I’ve only made this with an immersion blender because it’s the easiest way BUT I think you could probably do this in a blender or food processor.

  1. Measure the avocado oil into a container large enough to fit an immersion blender.
  2. Add the garlic, lemon juice, liquid smoke, salt, and pepper.  Drop the egg in last and let it settle at the bottom.
  3. Fully immerse your immersion blender into the cup and have it touch the bottom.  Turn it on and hold it on the bottom of the cup for about 15 seconds.
  4. SLOWLY pull the immersion blender up until everything is incorporated.  You might have to pull the blender out completely and then blend down to get the oil all mixed together.
  5. Store in an airtight container in your fridge for as long as it will last!
