Homemade Mayonnaise [Vegan]

If you enjoy recipes like this, we highly recommend downloading the Food Monster App, it's available for both Android and iPhone and has free and paid versions. The app is loaded with thousands of allergy-friendly & vegan recipes/cooking tips, has hundreds of search filters and features like bookmarking, meal plans and more! The app shows you how having diet/health/food preferences can be full of delicious abundance rather than restrictions!

By making your own mayo, you can control exactly what goes in it. Oh, and it’s way cheaper than buying vegan mayo or even regular mayo. That's a bonus!

I guarantee that if there is a person in your life who can’t have a lot of sodium (or even eggs for that matter), this recipe will make them very happy. A drastic change in diet, especially for health reasons is hard. If this simple recipe can put some normalcy and familiarity back into someone’s life, then I have done my job.

Homemade Vegan Mayo


  • 1/2  cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (or less)
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1  1/2  teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons agave nectar
  • 1 cup canola oil


  1. Place soy milk, sea salt, ground mustard, garlic powder, vinegar and agave in a blender.
  2. Place the lid on the blender and turn to slow.
  3. Take the middle part of the blender’s lid out while the blender is still running and slowly pour in the canola oil.
  4. Place the lid back on and blend until the mayo is thick and creamy.



This recipe is awesome as is or you can use it as a base and add whatever flavor you like. More garlic, sriracha, wasabi, chives, dill, sun dried tomato, let your imagine run wild and have fun.

I suggest using organic canola oil and organic soy milk because canola or soy that isn’t organic has likely been Genetically Modified.

You can double this recipe for a bigger batch if you like.

This will stay good in the refrigerator for up to a week.

I made some modifications & loved it. Subs I used: I used Hazelnut milk, Olive oil, Maple syrup and 1/4 tsp. mustard. I think you could use any kind of milk & oil you want to use, and still have it work. Then I mixed part of it with pesto [after mixing it up into mayo] it was great both ways. Thank You for the recipe!

I can't believe you would suggest using canola oil and agave...honey and some kind of nut oil would be far healthier. And another type of milk might be a better choice as well, almond, rice or maybe even hemp.

Why would anyone do this? You can buy olive oil mayo. It isn't expensive, totally vegan and dairy free and it taste's wonderful.
