This is a light, gorgeous and a perfect creamy mayonnaise that is dairy free, gluten free, egg free and nut free. It’s very fast and simple to make as it has only 5 ingredients and needs just a mason jar and an immersion blender.
1/2 cup cold unsweetened organic coconut cream - the top from homemade coconut milk is best* or use a BPA free canned organic coconut cream
1 teaspoon fresh organic lemon juice
1 organic garlic clove, peeled and mashed
1/2 cup cold pressed organic sunflower oil (Flora is a good brand)
Celtic sea salt to taste
Combine the coconut cream, lemon juice and garlic in a mason jar. Blend on high for 30 seconds with an immersion blender. Add 1/4 cup of sunflower oil and blend one more minute until the ingredients have emulsified (the oil is incorporated with the other ingredients). Add the remaining 1/4 cup of sunflower oil and blend until the mixture reaches the consistency that you prefer. Add sea salt to taste. Refrigeration will allow the mayonnaise to set up a bit.
