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.
- 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).
- 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.
- Label bag noting the number of avocados inside, lay flat and freeze for up to 6 months.
- 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 :) Update Nov 2015 I do this all the time now with a slight modification. I toss my avocado in the blender with the lemon juice, then I put it in a pastry bag & fill ice cube trays with the mixture. When frozen I pop them out, bag & label & toss back in the freezer. It works great! I just pull out the number of frozen cubes I need, let them thaw a bit & add to my recipe. Thanks again 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. ;-)
