How to Properly Freeze an Avocado

Friday, October 18, 2013

How to Properly Freeze an Avocado


ripe California Avocados
1 tbsp lime (or lemon) juice per avocado
Food Processor or Blender


Cut and peel the ripe avocados and place them in the work bowl of your food processor.
Add 1 tbsp of lime or lemon juice per avocado being processed.
Puree until smooth to ensure the acidic agent has been evenly distributed throughout the avocados.
Scoop into a zip close bag and freeze flat. (I freeze them flat, so then I can stack them vertically, side by side, once they are hard.)
Use the frozen avocado within 4 to 5 months.


Use the avocado puree in guacamole, dressings, sauces, or spread on sandwiches.

    I found that I can make an interesting salad dressing with the frozen avocado I have with sesame oil. I will give this a go with mixing with lime juice and sesame oil for salad dressing. Thanks.

    Thanks. I can only by avacdos when they are on sell and hate to waste them. Now I can buy them more and enjoy one of my favorite foods.

    Avocados never last long enough to get to this in my house.

    Excellent. So that's how to do it. I had a hell of a time with freezing avocados. They turned black on defrosting.

P.S. Now that I know that it takes work to freeze avocados properly, I can bypass it since I enjoy the texture of fresh avocado anyway.

    Excellent! Now I want my own trees even though it does take 7 years to mature a tree to be fruitful. emoticon
