I heart avocados. But sometimes I get little too excited and buy too many. We eat them pretty often but sometimes they just all become overripe at the same time! I try to get a little variety in ripeness but a lot of times, they’re literally all the same. I’ve thrown away one too many avocados. Ugh, I know, life is hard.
So, I recently wondered if I could freeze them. Turns out, you can!
I found two different ways to freeze them. One seemed more geared towards making guacamole…which definitely sounds lovely. I don’t make guac too often though so I decided to freeze them a different way: cutting into quarters. This also appears to be the easier way..which I enjoy. The other way (potentially for guac) is to mash the avocado up, drop some lemon juice on it, then place in a freezer bag. Definitely look that up though before trusting my word since I haven’t tried it. Here’s how I froze my avocado:
I cut the avocado in half, then halved the half.
Then I placed them in freezer friendly bags. Pretty tough stuff :).
I’ve been using avocados a lot lately in green smoothies so freezing them makes for awesome consistency.

I’ve frozen them alone like you did and also gone ahead and made guacamole and done individual servings (or 2 person servings) in snack-size bags and then placed those in bigger freezer bag.
