How to Slice and Freeze Avocados

How To Freeze Avocados | Real Food RN
Avocados are a staple food in our household and we go through a lot of them every week. I sent my husband to the grocery store a few days ago and on the list it read “avocados, buy a bunch of them”…I should have been WAY more specific because he came home with a dozen avocados. Well, even the most avid avocado-eatin’ people can’t go through a dozen ripe avocados before some of them go bad. So, I had to do something with them. Then I found out that you can freeze avocados. Wow! Freeze them I did! They stay perfect and they last!

Here’s how I did it:

Slice an avocado into quarters and take out the pit. Peel off the outer layer. (Here’s a short video showing the same slicing technique that I use.) Stack into a plastic freezer bag and into the freezer they go. It’s just that easy. They work great for smoothies with frozen banana’s because they have a great ice-cream like texture when blended. Single-serving slices right out of the freezer.

There is handy little tool to make this even easier: check it out here

    So smart!! I normally buy 2 big ones for myself a week but I was at trader joes and got 4 because they came in a pack and I wasn’t sure what to do with the other because they will all get ripe at the same time and it’s just me eating them!

    Man I wish I would have known this for last year! My parents have an avocado tree and the tree produces hundreds and hundreds of avocados every year and I can only eat so much in a day. I always wondered if you could freeze them and if they would turn brown at all. Thank you so much for this post!!

    Thanks for the info about freezing avocados, I just assumed they would not freeze well. Broke my life rule to never assume anything,duh. I love avocados and have found them for 29 or 39 cents a few times and it is nice to know that I can buy a lot and freeze them. I always like to put a half in my salad but even if they are only good for smoothies that would be fine too. Just found your site but will be back. Keep up the good work.

      Glad you found it helpful. Come back often, I plan to start posting more frequently in the coming months. Also, if you sign up for my email newsletter you can get my latest posts emailed directly to you! I love avocados too, so glad I found a way to store them at peak ripeness!

    I love to smear avocados on buttered toast. Friends of mine in Costa Rica often eat that for breakfast. I imagine that would still work with frozen and thawed ones, and I plan to find out! Thanks for sharing this.
