Freezing Avocados

I usually buy avocados in a bag to get a better deal. Sometimes, I don't use the bag before the avocados become overripe. I discovered that avocados freeze well. Who knew?

Here's how to freeze an avocado:
Pick avocados that yield gently when squeezed. Remove the rind and pit and mash well with a fork.

Add 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon or lime juice per avocado.
Mix well. The juice keeps the avocado from getting brown and icky looking.

Put the avocado in a labeled bag and freeze. Defrost overnight in fridge and use as a sandwich spread, taco topping, guacamole recipe, or any other way you like your avocado. You won't be able to tell it isn't fresh and you'll always have avocados on hand!


  1. That is an awesome tip! Thanks!

  2. Wow! Who knew? I love avocados, but my husband doesn't (no kids at home anymore to help eat them up). So, I was trying to eat them up as soon as the ripened and sometimes that meant two or three in one day! I also buy them from Costco, by the bagful. So I am really happy to find that I can freeze them for later use! Thanks!
