What exactly is Aioli?

Technically the Oxford definition of aioli is mayonnaise seasoned with garlic. Both mayonnaise and aioli are emulsions meaning they contain 2 or more liquids that are typically unmixable. I’ve also seen the definition of true aioli as an emulsion of garlic and olive oil. Whatever the definition is, aioli is usually creamy, rich and delicious AND full of calories!

Is this healthy Cilantro Lime Yogurt really an aioli?

Well technically this aioli is probably not a true aioli, however it is made with garlic and a little light mayonnaise so I’m considering it a healthy aioli. It’s creamy because of the yogurt and delicious but not so rich and definitely does not have the calories that traditional aioli has. And yes, you could omit the mayonnaise if you wanted.
