  1. This looks amazing.

    I need to go on a no-dairy, no-egg, no-soy and no-Sugar (but stevia/truvia is ok).

    They Honey seems critical to this recipe. Is there a way to do it without the honey (something else sticky), or without any sweeter, that still tastes reasonable?

  2. It's not crucial at all. I have made it without honey, it's just a tad bland for my liking but creamy and spicy nonetheless...If you can have medjool dates then you can puree a date, it will change the color a little but will add the sweetness. Regardless, the texture will be the same with or without the honey so add the sweetener of your choice :)

  3. Thanks! Yes, the dates are out to. I guess I'll try it without sweetener, and then go to truvia if it needs it.

    There is a date "molasses" one can get from Middle Eastern markets called "dibbas" that would be nice - but it's dark.

    I am guessing Agave nectar would work too then.

  4. I don't recommend Truvia because it's not really all that healthy since it contains Erythritol as the first ingredient and natural "flavors"...Agave is highly processed too. Organic raw coconut sugar is low glycemic and very nice, I've never heard of dibbas - sounds very interesting. You may just like it without any sweetener, any dried organic fruit blended with a little water to make a paste should add enough sweetness. :)

  5. Thanks for the hints (and I don't even like Truvia - it's just the only sweetner allowed on this regime. I'll look into the coconut sugar. that may be OK.

  6. You can get pure organic stevia at mountain rose but it'll turn your mayo green :s

  8. Did you have an immersion blender? Usually it will only be watery if you use a regular blender. Don't waste it, use it as a salad dressing. :)

  9. It is crucial you do this with an immersion blender. Usually it will only be watery if you use a regular blender. Works perfectly every time for me and is thicker than the egg version. The flax seeds also must be fresh and ground very fine.

  10. I Just MadeThis With My Cuisinart Mini-Prep And It Was Perfect! I Blended Everything EXCEPT The Oil And Water First, Then Drizzled InThe Oil THru The Little Holes InTheTop. It WasToo Thick so I Did Same With The Water, A Little At A Time Until It Was The Way I Like It. (Sorry about All The UpperCase Letters. Swype Has Gone Bonkers Since I Installed The Android Jelly Bean "Upgrade.")

  11. Great! Glad it worked for you too...I'm not understanding why some find it runny, I - Like you have only ever made it too thick.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I just tried it but it became watery, I guess as I used a normal blender... But it made a great dressing! Is there a way to make it with a normal blender? Or better to buy an immersion one?
    Also I used linseed, though it seems that's the same as flax seed, is that correct?

  14. Thank you, I will try it again.

  15. You're welcome :)Glad you kept it for a dressing...I hate to see people through out food just because it didn't turn out the way they expected...Great idea!

  16. This is wonderful! It went thru a watery phase but thickened up when adding more flax meal. I left out the mustard and spices, using just salt to flavor. Next time, i will use half vinegar and half lemon juice, and will drizzle in the oil as I blend vs adding all at once.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm not sure...Did you use the exact same ingredients? Did you hold the blender tight to the bottom of the container? (I don't pop it up and down too much. Use the watery one for a salad dressing and try it again with double the flax, a little more oil and less vinegar/water. Mine always comes out thick and it seems to be a split between those who have it turn out watery and those who get it thick...It's very strange.

  18. I made it this morning and it is fabulous. We love the flavor! Mine didn't come out runny! Thanks!

  19. Yea! Glad to hear I'm not the only one it works for ...teehee. Thanks for letting me know, glad you like it :D

  20. Can you use a food processor? I don't own an immersion blender, but I own a Vitamix and a food processor.

    ReplyDelete
  21. It will not work in a food processor and it has never worked in my blender...it could possibly work in a vitamix but I think it's imperative to use an immersion blender.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yeah there is something about the order of ingredients or the way the immersion works that screws with this recipe. I can make it work with the exact same ingredients one time and the next time it comes out watery. I am working on what the issue is and will post it if I find a solution.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Please do, because it always works for me. I'm wondering if some people have trouble because the flax is not fresh. I keep my whole seeds in the freezer then grind just enough for the recipe each time.

    ReplyDelete
  24. There is a food science solution to this...I tried it both ways to confirm. Everyone needs to add the oil to the glass first and then the flax seed. You do not want the flax seed and water / vinegar to combine as the wet flax see will not emulsify with the oil. Oil and water dont mix.

    First add the oil...then the flax seed and let the flax seed saturate with the oil and sink to the bottom. After that add everything else and follow the emersion blender instructions as in the video.

    Good flavor on this...I particularly like walnut oil.

  26. Hi, I just tried this and mine came out runny too. I used an immersion blender, but I am thinking my flax seed weren't any good. I have had them quite awhile and had to grind them since they were milled flax seed. I will try this again.

  29. Just tried, subbing chia seed for flax. Consistency was fine. Used extra virgin olive oil (organic) and the flavor was pretty intense--I wondered for a moment if the chia was bad (new pkg tho), so I did resort to adding a date and a pinch of turbinado sugar. (I had not planned to use sweetener.) Allergies to eggs just diagnosed and I am a big mayo fan, so I knew I had to go hunting for options. There is some flax allergy to, hence my substitution of the chia. Thanks for the work you've put into this and thanks to the commenters as well.

  30. I ruined my first batch. I tried a second time after reading the above comment about order of ingredients and allowing the flax to sit for a bit a time in the oil. This worked! Thanks Colorful, good recipe.

  31. Just found this recipe. OMG! This was soooooo good. I never need to buy mayo again. I did not have an immersion blender so I used my magic bullet. What I did so that it would be thick like mayo was to blend all the ingredients first, EXCEPT THE OIL, then I put in half of the oil and blended with the rest of the ingredients for maybe 3 seconds at a time (pressing about 4 times) to allow it to thicken, then I put the remaining oil in and did the same thing. Delicious, I will also use this as a base for salad dressing!!! Thanks so much!!!!

  32. That's great Michelle! So glad you enjoyed and thank you for the Magic Bullet tips! :)
