Here is a healthy way to still have your mayo and eat it too! These three Plant Based mayos are oil free, refined sugar free and super delicious. The first mayo recipe is even fat free, using cauliflower as the base. Creamy and spreadable, any one of these mayos would go great on your favorite sandwich or in some potato salad!

  1. Where is the info for the onion powder you spoke of. I didn’t see the link in the u tube video with the mayo recipes?

      1. Wondering if this mayonnaise is sweet some thing like miracle whip? I was looking to making a mayonnaise that is more like best foods mayonnaise or Hellmann’s mayonnaise.

      1. You are amazing….If we add a couple of tablespoons of Kimchi or sauerkraut brine, and let the mayo sit for about 6 hours, won’t that extend the lifespan of the mayo?

    1. Becky where does it say in recipe for mayo to add arrow root or cornstarch?
      I reread mayo recipe and watched video
      So I was a little confused

  2. Made the cashew mayo for sandwiches at dinner tonight. Misunderstood the video and put a whole tsp of onion powder instead of 1/4tsp…oops but it was still delicious! Thank you for the recipe! Looking forward to trying the other versions as well!

  3. I just made this and it’s very runny. I wish I just added the water gradually although I used only 1/4 cup. I’m hoping it will thicken as it sits in the fridge.

  4. Thank you for taking on the challenge of making oil-free mayo.
    I used to make mayo (using oil dribble into the blender slowly) in the old fashioned way, but your recipes have unlocked the secret of making a Mayo-like spread which cannot only provide the joy of mayo, but also provide health enhancing benefits. There is plenty of oil in nuts, avocados and many vegetables to satisfy our bodily requirements without heaping loads of processed oils into our foods for ‘flavor’.
    Now, to the kitchen to give these recipes a go!

  5. Jill, I’m so sorry! I accidentally clicked 3 stars when I was trying to click on it to read reviews (instead of leaving a rating.) I’m going to try the cauliflower version and I’m excited I found your recipe because I’m going to eliminate nuts from my diet. Overall, I love what you do and have watched almost every YouTube video of yours!

    Just made the cashew one. I have a blender not a bullet, and so with that small quantity, it left it gritty as the blades didn’t have quite enough to work with. Using 1/4 cup water and not completely blending the nuts left it too thin so I added another small handful of nuts (maybe half a cup total) and not having braggs aminos I subbed 1/2 t salt, and subbed 1/2 clove garlic for the onion powder. DElicious!

  7. would the mayo turn out if the date is left out of the cauliflower mayo recipe? Or perhaps it could be replaced with something else?

    Just made the cashew mayo for a chickpea salad sandwich for lunch. It was so good, I can’t believe I have not made this before. It was so good in fact, I have signed up for the 28 day course. Thank you so much.

  9. I made the cauliflower “mayo” and had to double the ingredients to be able to have my small cup engage with the ingredients. I am hoping that after it chills it will be a tad thicker and maybe the taste will be smoother and not so tart in flavor. Not sure I would ever make it again.

    1. I just made the cauliflower mayo also and ran into the same problem. The ingredients are too little to engage with my Nutra bullet. I ended up adding soy milk. I use a shelf stable packaged riced cauliflower from Costco so perhaps it wasn’t watery enough.

      1. Hi Jill, I don’t have chipotle powder, can I use chilli powder ??
