Ajo is Spanish for garlic. Aioli is a garlic flavored mayonnaise used as a dip or spread.

Aioli made using full fat mayonnaise has about 100 calories per tablespoon (15 ml). Four tablespoons (1/4 cup) has about 400 calories. That easily negates using it as a dip for low calorie vegetables like carrots, celery, and broccoli when trying to maintain or lose weight.

This recipe using reduced fat mayonnaise and zero fat yogurt has about 20 calories per tablespoon; 80 calories in 1/4 cup. That’s less calories than 1 tablespoon of full fat aioli.

As with all recipes on this site, adjust the ingredients to your taste. You can:

Use more or less mayonnaise

Replace lemon juice with lime juice

Add other ingredients like dried or fresh basil, dill, rosemary, chives, or thyme.

Spice up your aioli by added sriracha or other chili sauce.

Thin aioli by adding a few tablespoons of water, lemon or lime juice, or milk until you have the desired consistency.
