Preserving Avocado (Frozen)

Total Time
Prep 3 mins
Cook 0 mins

I have looked for years for a way to can avocados. I have finally given up on that. Freezing seems to be the only way. Those of us with trees in the yard get this abundance that cannot all be consumed. If you know another way, let me know. I will experiment with drying, however that will give a completely different result.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 avocado, Florida (or 2 Haas grenades)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon


  1. Puree the avocado with the lemon juice.
  2. Place in zip locks meant for the freezer, leaving a little "head" space for expansion.
  3. Date the bag and lay flat to freeze.
  4. I like to be sure the bag is no more than an inch thick. This way it is easy to break off a small piece.

Been looking at this for awhile trying to decide if it was worth a shot. Found some nice avocadoes 3 for $1 if you can believe that, so I decided now was the time. Froze them with lime juice instead of lemon, since I use lime in guacamole. Only froze them for about 10 days, just to test the waters, so to speak. It worked!!! Made guacamole with the thawed avocadoes; it kept the bright green color, and the consistency. I also did not mash them smooth, as we like ours a little on the chunky side. Thrilled with this!!! Hope to find more cheap avocadoes. Thanks for the directions!
