The perfect homemade vegan mayonnaise

Print Recipe
This simple recipe for vegan mayonnaise is ready in 10 minutes! My version uses Crackd egg replacer but I'll also provide instructions from making it using the liquid from a can of chickpeas, also known as AquaFaba. 
Prep Time:10 mins
Total Time:10 mins


  • 125 ml of Crackd egg replacer or 5 tbsp of aquafaba
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups 500 ml vegetable oil


  • Gather your stand mixer. We'll be using the balloon whisk attachment to make this vegan mayonnaise.
  • Add all your ingredients except the oil to your stand mixer. We'll whisk these to combine on a high setting which will take about a minute if using egg replacer or 5 minutes if using AquaFaba.
  • Slowly add our oil, you'll want to add this a few tablespoons at a time, ensuring we don't add more until what we've added has combined fully.


What oil is best for making mayonnaise?

Neutral oils work best so stick to canolagrapeseed or vegetable oil for the best results. Ensure all your ingredients are at room temperature as it's the easiest to work with.

Is homemade mayo bad for you?

Like store-bought homemade vegan mayonnaise is high in calories, like most things in life moderation is key. Mayonnaise isn't generally used in large amounts so you should be fine, I wouldn't suggest eating jars of it daily though.

How do you thicken mayonnaise?

To thicken your mayonnaise, add in extra egg replacer or AquaFaba whisking as you add.

Can you over whisk mayonnaise?

While it is difficult to overwhisk you do need to pour the oil in slowly and whisk quickly. If you add the oil to your mayo too quickly your mixture will curdle.

How do you preserve homemade mayonnaise?

This mayonnaise will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.

How do you know if mayonnaise is spoiled?

You'll know mayonnaise has gone off if you spot mold inside your jar or it changes smell. Another sign is if the colour of the mayonnaise changes or it tastes off.

Can you freeze home made mayonnaise?

No, no. no. As mayo is an emulsion, freezing it would cause it to seperate and change the consistency. Since, it takes only 10 minutes to make, store in the fridgeand make a fresh batch when you run out.
