bake it: Freezing Avocados

Pin It


In our new house we are so fortunate to have a large avocado tree in our back yard. I have been exploring ways to keep avocados longer so I can have a supply on hand for guacamole, sandwiches and salads.

I have determined the best way to keep them is to freeze them with a little lemon juice.

To freeze, mash the avocados with a fork. Add one teaspoon lime or lemon juice per avocado and mix well. Place the mashed avocados into a freeze-weight zip lock bag. Remove the air from the bag and then zip closed and freeze. Store for up to 2 months. Thaw the frozen avocados in the refrigerator.

    Unbelievable! We just visited a friend who bought an avocado ranch and came home with 50 pounds of avocados... I google to see how I can freeze them, and OF COURSE I get YOUR article. I guess we are still keeping our brain waves tuned to the same station!
