Diet-Friendly & High-Protein Vegan Mayo
Doesn’t this bowl of creamy white goodness look tasty? 😉
Well, what if I told you that it’s fat-free, carb-free, high-protein AND tastes just like the “real thing?”
Like many vegans, I’ll never forget how excited I was to discover Vegenaise and have a vegan mayo option. From that day forward, my veggie sandwiches and potato salads breathed a velvety, tangy life I never thought possible. But let’s face it, despite being egg and cruelty-free, Vegenaise is still a resident at Fat City. And since I’ve morphed into somewhat of a vegan fitness “guru,” I just can’t justify buying it anymore (or any fatty condiment for that matter.) And like every devout vegan meathead, I’ve just become accustomed to saucing ALL of my bland & boring food with mustard and/or hot sauce.
But recently, something amazing happened when one of my awesome clients, changed my condiment world forever!
She asked if she was able to include her “healthy mayo” on the vegan diet plan I had written for her.
When I saw that the only ingredients were tofu, lemon juice, vinegar, Dijon mustard and stevia drops, I was all over that shit like neon spandex on my perfectly-sculpted arse. 😉
So today I’m stoked to share this kick-ass competition diet-friendly (and high protein) vegan mayonnaise recipe on my blog. And check these macros for a 2 Tbsp. serving:
Only 11 calories. One gram of fat. One gram of carbs. And two grams of protein.
You know what 2 tablespoons of Vegenaise looks like? 172 calories! Almost 20 grams of fat. And less than half a gram of protein.
And honestly, I LOVE the taste of this healthier version! You can also add a little less liquid and make an awesome dip for veggies or tempeh.
Or follow the recipe below for a smooth, spreadable vegan mayo that you can dump all over anything you want, baby! Here’s the recipe:
Diet-Friendly & High Protein Vegan Mayo
One 350g package extra-firm tofu
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup white vinegar
3 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
6 – 10 drops of liquid stevia
It’s really difficult, guys! Hope you can manage this one. 😉
Crumble brick of tofu into blender. Dump everything else on top of tofu in blender. Blend until smooth.
Any questions? I didn’t think so. And yes, you and your boring vegan bodybuilding food are very welcome for this gem. 🙂

Haha good point! I made a batch last week and I’m still getting through it!
FYI: It makes a good-sized batch so depending on how many people you’re feeding, you might want to half it.
This sounds too good to be true, but it is SOOOO GOOOD!
Hi Steph!! Someone else actually asked me this same question. I’d say it’ll last you a couple of weeks. There isn’t really anything in it that would go bad quickly and the vinegar will help prolong its’ life too. Just make sure you keep it in a mason jar. The batch does make a HUGE quantity and should last you a good couple of weeks as is. Hope this helps. And please report back if it does go bad before then haha.
What’s the shelf life of this? Making a big batch to last a while in the fridge would be super peachy keen!
