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!
How to Slice and Freeze Avocados
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. How to freeze avocados is just that easy. They work great for smoothies with frozen bananas 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
