An easy dairy free homemade creamy mayonnaise no egg recipe that is always a great addition to your favorite salads and sandwiches.
Dairy Free Homemade Creamy Mayonnaise No Egg Recipe
This easy to make dairy free homemade creamy mayonnaise no egg recipe was in a magazine I received from a vitamin store. I was excited to try this recipe because my daughter has a sensitivity to mayonnaise, its one condiment she can not use in her salads.
I’m always willing to jump in to try a recipe that seems to be a healthy alternative. Then when the recipe is a winner, to my surprise, I have to share it. I’m sure there are many families with different issues just like we have here. I’m always thrilled to share one of these terrific, quick and easy made from scratch recipes. It’s not as difficult as some might think.
A Pinch of Healthy
This creamy mayonnaise is made with raw cashews and eliminates eggs. Just to be clear, my family is not vegan – and they are not even in the vegetarian category. However, when it comes to finding recipes that I think will replace old favorites I give them a try. I’m always trying to make recipes with ‘a pinch of healthy’. Every little bit helps especially when it comes to feeding senior citizens and teenagers.
Mayonnaise is a condiment that my daughter tries not to use even though she enjoys a variety of salads that usually call for mayonnaise. A a parent I try my best to find recipes that can replace the old favorites.
I’m a fan of using cashews to make cashew milk or cream. Although, you can now easily find a 1 quart container of cashew milk in the supermarket. I started using cashew milk in my diary free homemade ice cream base. I always used coconut milk but my troops became tired of the full on coconut flavor. The neutral flavor of cashews is great and gives the ice creamy a very creamy texture without adding another level of flavor. Cashew milk is the way to go if you do not have to worry about nut allergies.
Recipe testing for my family favorite make-overs are quite often winners as long as I do not mention it’s a new recipe. If I mention the recipe is a healthy alternative they will not even look at. I just keep a tight lip and serve up a pinch of healthy. Isn’t that what moms do?
Though I have a terrific example of #cookingwithkids for this sweet and sour sauce copycat recipe we made together. My grandson helped with the recipe and became a believer.
One of my favorite dairy free dessert recipes is this easy to make Dairy Free Banana Cream Parfaits. This recipe is a great dessert for lunch boxes or after school snacks. Just use small disposable containers and you can add these to the lunch boxes – either yours or the kids school lunch box. It’s a healthy choice for back to school.
Back to the dairy free cashew mayonnaise recipe I made all summer which I added to homemade coleslaw. It was so delicious, not even the kids noticed a difference. If everyone is enjoying the meal without noticing something is different – the recipe is A Keeper for sure.Print
Dairy Free Homemade Creamy Mayonnaise No Egg Recipe
Dairy Free Homemade Creamy Mayonnaise No Egg Recipe is very easy to make with only 4 basic ingredients and a blender. Using a high speed blender is the preferred choice to achieve the smooth creamy mayonnaise. No cooking and a very easy recipe.
- Prep Time: 5-7 minutes
- Total Time: 7-10 minutes
- Yield: approx. 4-6 ounces
- Category: Condiment
- Cuisine: American
- 1 1/2 cups raw cashews – soak in water for 30 minutes (or longer), then drain and rinse.
- 3/4 cup Cashew milk (which I already had – you can also use almond milk (unsweetened))
- 3 tbls. avocado oil
- 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp. granulated Monk Fruit (sweetness is optional)
- 3/4 tsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- Drain the soaked cashews and add to a high speed blender.
- Add the remaining ingredients to the blender. Blend until very smooth.
- Taste to see if you would like to add more lemon or some sweetness.
TIP: The original recipe called for Maple Syrup and Olive Oil. I twice made the recipe exactly as written. However I didn’t like the flavor of the maple syrup, and the olive oil was too heavy. So I eliminated the maple syrup and only used a small amount of granulated Monk fruit for sweetener and I used avocado oil. The avocado oil is a neutral flavor and if you do not like sweet mayonnaise then be sure to taste test as you go. When I made this recipe today I used the nutribullet, it blended the cashews quite smooth.
