Regularly consuming mayonnaise, despite its delicious taste, may not be the healthiest option due to its high content of saturated fats. The excessive consumption of such fats can lead to weight gain and increase the likelihood of developing diabetes. However, this healthy pear mayonnaise recipe offers a healthier alternative to regular mayonnaise.
What’s great about this recipe is that it’s straightforward to make.
1 ripe avocado
1 egg yolk
1 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Core and peel the avocado and finely chop it into small pieces.
2. Put the chopped avocado and egg yolk into a blender or food processor.
3. Blend the avocado and egg yolk mixture until it becomes a smooth puree.
4. While the blender or food processor is running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil in a steady stream. This process should endure for 3-5 minutes until the mixture thickens.
5. Continue blending the mixture until it reaches the consistency of mayonnaise. If it’s too thin, add more olive oil.
6. Season the avocado mayonnaise with salt and pepper to taste and blend it briefly to combine.
7. Transfer the avocado mayonnaise to an airtight container or jar and store it in the refrigerator, where it can last for a few days.
Additionally, olive oil is a better option than other oils as it is mild in flavor and rich in healthy fats. It is important to note that the flavor of this pear mayonnaise may differ slightly from that of traditional mayonnaise, which one may be accustomed to. However, with time, one can develop a liking for this healthy alternative.
