*I like vegan mayo that uses aquafaba as its base. My personal favorite brand is Chosen Foods Vegan Avocado Oil Mayo.
Not only does this plant-based mayo contain heart-healthy avocado oil, but it uses aquafaba from chickpeas. Aquafaba has a whipped, creamy texture making it the perfect base for an animal-free mayo.
It’s also super easy to make your own aquafaba mayo. I like this recipe, here.
