Ingredients

  • 12.3 ounces firm silken tofu 349 grams
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle in adobo sauce (include both adobo sauce and finely chopped pepper)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, fresh squeezed
  • ¼ teaspoon lime zest
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt, to taste
  • pinch chipotle chili powder or cayenne pepper (optional)

Instructions

  • Juice and zest the lime. Drain the liquid from the package of silken tofu. Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until completely smooth. 
  • If the ingredients are sticking to the sides of the food processor, stop the processor, scrape the sides down, and continue blending. A rubber spatula is helpful in scraping down the sides. You can add a little more lime juice if you feel it’s too thick. 
  • Allow the vegan chipotle mayo to chill in the fridge before serving. Enjoy! 

Notes

This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). Most mayonnaise recipes would be placed in level 3, because they’re added fats. While classic mayonnaise recipes provide up to 120-130 calories per tablespoon, this is a light mayonnaise alternative.
This vegan chipotle mayo contains only about 10-20% of the calories of store-bought mayo. I think it’s perfectly fine to use a generous portion of this mayo, and it provides a little protein boost. (Since it spoils more quickly than mayo from the store, you may want to use extra to prevent food waste.)
If you have a weight loss goal, I generally recommend getting your fat from whole foods rather than added fats. This means (for example) choosing avocados rather than avocado oil. Whole foods contain components like protein and fiber that can help you to feel full on fewer calories.
This vegan alternative mayo recipe is a great example of what this can look like. Instead of a typical high fat mayo, minimally processed tofu mayo bumps up the protein and drastically lowers the fat. If you regularly use this in place of traditional mayo, you will save hundreds of calories with little effort.
Nutrition information is for a generous serving of approximately 2 tablespoons.
