This vegan mayo is creamy and fluffy like regular mayo but without eggs! It’s made with cashews for a rich, full-bodied texture and flavor.
You need to try this homemade vegan mayo! Perfect for use in sandwiches, salads, dips, and more. I love using this mayo in potato salad, chickpea salad, and Japanese sesame dressing. It’s so versatile and easy to make – all you need is a blender! (I love my Nutribullet* for this.)
Homemade Vegan Cashew Mayo FAQ
How long does homemade vegan mayo last?
I recommend using this vegan mayo within 1-2 weeks. If you notice any mold starting to grow, or it develops a weird flavor or smell, toss it. To extend its storage life, keep the mayo in an airtight container in the fridge and always use clean utensils to scoop the mayo.
Tips for Success
Soak the cashews ⟶ For the smoothest mayo, make sure you soak the cashews overnight or in hot water for at least 10 minutes before blending.
Use a high power blender ⟶ If your blender is too weak you will end up with a gritty mayo with small chunks of cashews. I recommend using a Nutribullet* or Vitamix*.
