SCD Recipe: Homemade Mayonnaise

Making Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) mayonnaise is very easy! I don’t use mayo all that often, but every once in a while I like to have some on hand.Ā  In fact homemade mayo is way better than what you buy at the store!

If you’re adventurous you can even try out various kinds of oils and vinegars, or add spices, for different flavors!

For this recipe I used an immersion blender, but you can use a regular blender, food processor, or an electric or stand mixer.
