Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
Servings: 1 group, one sitting


  • 2 egg yolks Keep your whites for making macaroons, why not!?
  • 2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 pinches sea salt
  • 30 ml (1oz) Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 30 ml (1oz) Avocado Oil
  • 30 ml (1oz) Brain Octane or MCT oil If you can't get this just do 45ml each of the other 2, no drama!
  • 2 tsp maple syrup, rice malt syrup or honey
  • 2 tsp smoked chipotle hot sauce I use the Tabasco brand. You could also substitute with 1/2 tsp smoked chipotle powder instead


  • Get your stick blender assembled.
  • Crack and separate out your two egg yolks and place into a narrow jug
  • Crack and separate out your two egg yolks and place into a narrow jug with the fresh lime juice and sea salt
  • Stick blend these for 30 seconds
  • Then add each of the fats in two stages - ie, 15ml / 1/2Oz at a time, stick blending on high for 20 seconds at a time before adding your next little drizzle
  • Then pop in your smoked chipotle and sweetener of choice and do a final blend for 5 seconds. You're done. A delicious thick mayonnaise for spreading onto bread, serving with mets or falafels or dipping crudité into. Enjoy!
  • Option for a creamy dressing variation: Add 15ml / 1/2Oz more of each of the oils, 2 more pinches of salt and the juice of a whole lime to the above for a further blend of 20 seconds, if you want a longer, thinner mayo-style salad dressing.
