Six Perfect Substitutes For Mayonnaise


The classic mayo is really high in calories, with a total of 90 and 10 grams of fat per tablespoon. If you want to add a thick and creamy characteristic to your meals, and you do not want to add the extra calories to your diet, you should try these equally awesome alternatives instead.⠀

1. Cottage cheese: Salty and creamy flavour that’s similar to mayo. This sub is low in calorie, high in protein, and has no cholesterol. It works especially well in tuna and pasta salads as well as dips.⠀

2. Avocado: Creamy and dense, like mayo. You can smear them on sandwiches, and save 77 calories, 9g fat, and 89mg sodium per tablespoon. Plus, you get an extra gram of fiber. ⠀

3. Greek Yogurt: Tangy like mayo, similar texture, too. You can use this substitute in basically any recipe, especially in dips and salad dressings, and it will save you 90 calories, 11g fat, and 85mg sodium per tablespoon…PLUS, you’ll add a gram of protein, too.⠀
