Avocado freezing, how to defrost it, and how to use it

Guacamole with ingredients

We have come across a time when our trees have produced so many avocados that we needed an alternative. We came up with all of the standard go-to ideas. As always, we made dips and sauces. We had salads and nachos. But when your harvest is THAT good, you must be able to preserve some. With freezing, you get to enjoy all your avocado dips and other avocado recipes a bit later, when avocado season has come and gone.

The key is lemon or lime juice, so the avocado does not go brown. If you opt to freeze your avocados by just cutting them in half and peeling them, lather them well with lemon or lime juice. Put them in a sealable bag or container and pop them in the freezer.

Pureed avocado can be used directly in recipes like smoothies, dips, and sauces. Blend diced avocados with lemon or lime juice in a blender. 2 teaspoons per large avocado will work perfectly. Place in a freezer bag and squeeze out as much air as possible. Another amazing idea: ice cube trays. After they’ve frozen, take them out and place them in your freezer bag.

With diced avocados, you can go two ways, either you can just freeze them with the avo dice coated in a bit of lemon or lime juice or make guacamole with your favorite recipe.

These avos will stay fresh in your freezer for 3–6 months. To thaw your frozen avocado, take it out of the freezer and leave it overnight in the fridge.
