Coconut oil mayonnaise recipe - Dr. Axe

Total Time

10 minutes




  • 2 egg yolks at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon of mustard
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¾ cup of coconut oil, melted
  • pinch of sea salt and black pepper


  1. In a blender, add egg yolks, mustard, 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice and blend on very low setting.
  2. Slowly drizzle in the oil while blender is still on low speed.
  3. Once oil is well incorporated, add the remaining lemon juice.
  4. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Place mayo in a jar and store in the refrigerator.

Are you looking for right kind of mayonnaise without genetically modified canola oil or even potentially problematic grapeseed oil? Instead, go with a DIY mayo that uses the best ingredients, including the healthiest fat.

In other words, I strongly suggest you make up your own homemade Coconut Oil Mayonnaise. It’s chock-full of benefit-rich coconut oil.

    actually haven’t tried the concoction yet but it looks pretty good. inadvertently pressed 1 star rating: thought i was soliciting rating comments”. ignore my rating.

      Yes, I use a combo of olive oil and coconut oil and it does tend to harden in the fridge. I am trying to find a healthy and tasty alternative for my husband, who has Chrohn’s. He likes the flavor of this but we are frustrated with the consistency because it won’t spread straight out of the refrigerator. Thought about subbing out MCT oil for the coconut oil. Does anyone know if that works? These mayonnaise experiments are getting expensive for me!

        I’ve used in this recipe MCT oil instead of olive oil, as the extra virgin variety has a too strong taste for me. And, sometimes I use a whole egg instead of 2 egg yolks because I just do not want to waste food. If using MCT oil only, it will not harden in the fridge. (Drizzle oil until the texture looks right.) Try it on oil coated oven roasted celeriac chips (French fries?)with Mediterranean herbs!

    I made it exactly to the recipe. It doesn’t really work as a mayonnaise. It completely hardens in the fridge and is not spreadable or mixable at all. Any advice
