    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    Avocados can be expensive, even here in Texas. This is more of a tip than a recipe that I wanted to save for myself and share with y'all. Now I can stock up when they are on sale yet still enjoy them when they are not. Just multiply the recipe for the number of avocados you want to freeze.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2

    Yield:

    avocado

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Halve avocados, remove pit and flesh and place flesh in a zip top plastic bag. Add lemon juice and mash or squish the avocado. You can puree it in a blender or food processor if you like and then add to the bag. ( I have frozen diced and sliced this way as well though the mashed or puree works best).
    2. 2
      Seal bag almost all the way. Squeeze out all the air in the bag, pressing and flattening the avocado and bag until all the air is removed.
    3. 3
      Label bag noting the number of avocados inside, lay flat and freeze for up to 6 months.
    4. 4
      Note: To use: remove from freezer and thaw for 15 minutes at room temperature The avocado will still be fresh and green like you just peeled and mashed it.

      Awesome! Thanks!! I love avocados but they are spendy, and when they go on sale I can't eat them fast enough! So this is perfect. Have you ever cubed them and tossed with lemon juice to freeze? I wonder how that works...

      Love this idea! I have 3 avocados that are ripe right now & I know I won't be able to eat all of them. I will update this with my star rating after I have tried them frozen. Thanks for posting Mama :)

      Wow, excellent! The local Meijer's supermarket has avocado sales every once in a while--like 10 for $5--and I never buy because my husband and I can't possibly eat them all soon enough. Your solution is wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing. ;-)
