Potatonaise – Healthy Mayo-Like Spread Recipe

You can make a wonderfully delicious mayo-like spread using a day-old baked potato and some common ingredients like garlic, lemon, and parsley? The Gerson Therapy Institute calls it “Potatonaise”. All you need to do is combine those items in a food processor with flaxseed oil and apple cider vinegar for an instant replacement. Mayonnaise is loaded with saturated fats and sodium, so make a healthy alternative like our Potatonaise for a versatile spread without the guilt.

The Gerson therapy, named after Dr. Max Gerson, has been used by some people to treat cancer and other diseases. It is based on the role of minerals, enzymes, and other dietary factors. There are 3 key parts to the therapy:

  • Diet: Organic fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to give the body plenty of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other nutrients. The fruits and vegetables are low in sodium (salt) and high in potassium.
  • Supplementation: The addition of certain substances to the diet to help correct cell metabolism (the chemical changes that take place in a cell to make energy and basic materials needed for the body’s life processes).
  • Detoxification: Treatments, including enemas, to remove toxic (harmful) substances from the body.

Store-bought mayonnaise is mostly made up of egg yolks and soybean oil. Two tablespoons serves up to 4 grams of saturated fat without much nutritional value.

Gerson Potatonaise Recipe


4 organic potatoes – baked, cooled, peeled, cubed (preferably day-old)
1/3-1/2 cup flax oil (Barlean’s is best)
1/4 cup raw apple cider vinegar with “mother” (Barlean’s)
1/3 cup fresh organic lemon juice
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 tsp of raw honey or another healthy sweetener


Blend oil, vinegar, lemon juice, and garlic until creamy, add potato cubes ¼ cup at a time, and blend with each additional ¼ cup. Add purified water when necessary to help with blending and for desired thickness.

Serve atop a fresh salad or use as a fresh vegetable dip.

Motivation to Eat Healthy…One Step at a Time

If your motivation to eat healthy is lacking, I highly encourage you to look for small things you can change to get your diet under better control…like incorporating the healthy mayo-like spread recipe above. It’s little things like this that end up making the most difference. Just take things one step at a time. Are you incorporating exercise in your life every day? Would losing some weight put you in better health? When was the last time you did a full body cleanse? Sometimes these are important factors in getting healthy, but not always. At any rate, if your current lifestyle choices aren’t putting you where you want to be, I suggest making a decision to implement this recipe as one step toward a goal of healthy eating. Getting healthy is not always easy, but the good news is that when your body is healthy and you actually feel good, living life becomes nothing short of amazing.
