How to make Mayonnaise at Home

Many people usually get their Mayonnaise from the store, however, you can easily make your own Mayonnaise at home.

All you need are;

  • Blender
  • Raw Eggs ( 1 or 2)
  • Lemon or lime juice( about 2 tablespoon)
  • Vegetable oil. (½ litre)
  • Little bit of salt and sugar (2 cubes) to taste.


Set the blender to low speed.

Put the eggs, lemon juice, salt and sugar and blend to a smooth consistency.

With the blender still set to low speed and the blended mixture still inside, start the blender again. Open the cover of the blender jar at the top and very slowly pour the vegetable oil as the blender is mixing.

Continue pouring the oil slowly until the mixture thickens. You will know when the mixture has thickened because the blender will struggle to continue blending the mixture.
