Did you know that avocados can be frozen? Though fresh Haas avocados are preferred for their taste and versatility, with the proper preparation, pureed avocados can be frozen and used in guacamole dips, dressings , sauces and spreads on sandwiches.
Whole,cut dice or mash avocados do not have as desirable of a result when frozen. Guacamole can often contain other ingredients that do not freeze well so guacamole is not recommended for freezing.

How to Make How to Freeze Avocados

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash-
    Wash the outside of the avocados thoroughly by holding them under running water or wash in your produce wash.
  2. Cut-
    Cut and peel the avocados, remove seed.
  3. Puree-
    Place peeled avocados in a food processor or blender. Add a ratio of 1 Tablespoon of fresh lemon or lime juice for each avocado you are freezing. Puree until smooth. This will ensure that the juice is evenly distributed to help prevent them turning brown.
    Note: Mashing does not give as good results.
  4. Package-
    Place the pureed avocado into an air tight container. Leave 1/2 to 1 inch headspace in the container to allow for expansion. Close tightly and label and freeze.
    Use within 5 months.
  5. Note: I was wondering if you did this procedure if you could put it in one of those vacuum bags and freeze it that way. I think you could even do the guacamole in the vacuum bags with great results.
    Anyone want to try and let us know how it worked out?
