TURN YOUR RIPE AVOCADO INTO A COLOURFUL MAYO SPREAD IN MINUTES

This garlicky avocado mayonnaise is homemade, tangy, delicious, bursting with green colour and will light up any sandwich or meal that you use it in or on.

I like to call it avocado mayo sauce. Still, my wife says it’s a garlicky avocado mayonnaise, so we’ll use that name for this recipe we created with perfectly ripened avocados.

Honestly, please don’t throw your avocado out because it is too soft or you see some brown when you cut it open.

It’s still edible and delicious, just very ripe.

You can quickly turn ripe avocado into a sweet treat such as a low-carb avocado chocolate pudding or this garlicky avocado mayonnaise.

Benefits Of Mayonnaise

Is mayo good for you?

Of course, it is but like with everything, and we enjoy it in moderation as it has all the healthy fats that our bodies need.

It’s incredible how difficult it is to get good fats into our diets when we don’t cook or prepare foods in advance with a meal plan.

Having a healthy avocado mayo substitute instead of plain mayo is a great way to get extra healthy fats in your diet.

Often we opt for quick sandwiches instead, which on occasion consist of egg salad, tuna salad, chicken salad, ham or salami with cheese.

Nutrients In Avocados

Here are some of the most abundant nutrients, in a single 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving:

  • Vitamin K: 26% of the daily value (DV)
  • Folate: 20% of the DV
  • Vitamin C: 17% of the DV
  • Potassium: 14% of the DV
  • Vitamin B5: 14% of the DV
  • Vitamin B6: 13% of the DV
  • Vitamin E: 10% of the DV
  • It also contains small amounts of magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc, phosphorous and vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin).

This is coming with 160 calories, 2 grams of protein and 15 grams of healthy fats. Although it contains 9 grams of carbs, 7 of those are fiber, so there are only 2 “net” carbs, making this a low-carb friendly plant food.- Source Proven benefits of Avocado

What’s Hiding In Your Mayo? Avocado, that’s what!

Feeding Our Picky Son

Having a picky eater in the family makes preparing meals more challenging, especially when we want to eat healthily.

When our son was a baby, he LOVED avocado and would ask for them at least every other day.

We thought this was great; however, it was short-lived as he explored new flavours.

Now that our son is starting year one at elementary school, we want to make sure that he is getting the good fats or something filling his tummy up, so he’s not cranky or falling tired at school.

While we were walking through Costco last week, he just so happened to point out avocado on a jar of avocado mayonnaise.

He then said, “I love avocado,” which was news to us since he hasn’t had it for over two years.

Since he seemed impressed with the avocado mayonnaise, we thought we would give it a go since we had a ripe and ready to be used up.

We’re not newbies to making homemade mayonnaise in the CBB house, so it was reasonably easy to get the base of the mayonnaise going before we added the chunks of avocado.

What Is Mayonnaise?

Mayo or mayonnaise is a stable emulsion of oil, egg yolk, acid, vinegar or lemon juice.

The first mayonnaise we ever created in our kitchen was homemade garlic basil mayonnaise, which was awesome since we had all of these fresh herbs growing.

Today, we have all of the herbs, plus we are crazy, so we decided to combine the two.

The jar of avocado mayonnaise at Costco was a tad on the pricey side for us, and we knew we could make it at home for a fraction of the price.

Every mayonnaise recipe that we’ve made has eggs and oil, so we chose to use avocado oil which was great as it added just enough avocado flavour to the recipe.

Types Of Oils To Use

If you don’t have avocado oil, you can undoubtedly use extra virgin olive oil. We also minced up some of our favourite organic garlic, fresh basil, lemon basil, and parsley from our herb garden.

You will want to add some salt and pepper along with some lemon juice to tang up the avocado mayonnaise if you find it doesn’t have that bite that you’re craving.

Some people like their mayonnaise with lemon tang, and others like it a bit on the savoury side.

Now, if you don’t fancy making homemade avocado mayonnaise from scratch, you can cut corners and use pre-made mayonnaise, although you won’t get that authentic homemade taste like you would if you made it from scratch.

One of our favourite mayo brands is Hellman’s, as we find it has the mayo flavour we look for in a pre-made sauce.

We love to use avocado mayo on burgers, or grilled salmon with mayo is the best too. It adds just enough flavour to the fish that you won’t need those other fish sauces.

Baked chicken with mayo is fantastic, or you can use this avocado mayonnaise as a dressing for your salads which I often do.

If you don’t own a food processor, you can easily make this using a hand blender as we did, but it might take you a bit longer.

Honestly, we were too lazy to bring out the processor, but we do have one.
