How to freeze avocado so that it actually tastes good later!
Avocados can be tricky. They’re unripe forever, and then BAM! They’re ripe and need to be used right away. For years, I wasted a lot of avocados because they were not ripe or spoiled too quickly. That isn’t the case anymore because I learned how to freeze avocado.
This is an especially handy trick to know if you want to save money as well. On top of not wasting them, you purchase more when you find a sale and then use when you need them!

There are a few ways I can teach you how to freeze avocado, so let’s get started!
The first way is by mashing it. Remove the avocado from it’s peel. Use a fork to mash the avocado finely. Once your avocado is mashed, you can store it flattened, in a large, freezer baggie. Flattening the avocado in the bag makes it easier to stack in the freezer. Date the outside of the bag so you know which bags to use first.
This way is fun and easy. Remove your avocado from the peel. Mash it in a bowl, finely. Use a spoon to scoop the mashed avocado into olive oil greased ice cube trays. Wrap the tray in tin foil or cellophane while it freezes, to keep it from getting freezer burned. Once they’re frozen (over night, or 4-6 hours later) remove them from the tray and store them in a freezer safe container or baggie.
The simplest way on our list of how to freeze avocado, is to halve it and freeze it. Cut the avocado in half, remove the seed, and scoop the half from the peel. Place the halves on a cookie sheet, and lightly spray them with a citrus juice (we use lime.) Once they’ve been sprayed, place them in a freezer baggie, press the air out without smashing the avocado, and freeze!
Now that you know how to freeze avocado, does this change how many you’ll be buying next time they go on sale?
