Healthy Homemade Avocado Oil Mayonnaise

Making homemade mayo had been on my list of things I wanted to make for a long, long time. Since my husband and I recently started eating a high-healthy-fat, low-carb diet, so now was the time.

Every homemade mayonnaise recipe I'd seen calls for olive oil and eggs. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I wanted to bump up the healthy fat quota of my mayonnaise, so I decided to do a mix of avocado oil and olive oil.

Did you know that avocados are considered one of the healthiest foods you can consume? It's true. They packed with healthy monounsaturated fats; they're naturally nutrient-dense, and they each contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals. Talk about a superfood!

To learn more about the health benefits of avocados, all it takes is a quick internet search, and you'll be blown away by what you find. Even though avocados are high in calories, they're the calories your internal organs, and your brain require to keep in tip top condition. We've all heard the saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." Well, I think it's high time that saying is rewritten, and the avocado takes its deserved place in the sun.
