Yep!! There are different methods you can use to freeze the avocados. All are really easy to do and take little efforts.
Make sure you know that when you freeze them, they will need to be used for something such as guacamole or other recipes. The texture is no the same as when first sliced. Just keep that in mind when thawing them.
There are a few ways you how to freeze avocado, so let’s get started!
HOW TO FREEZE AVOCADO
One way to freeze it is to mash it first. Remove the avocado from its peel. Then, mash it finely with a fork.
Once entirely mashed, put it into a plastic baggie. Flatten it and write the date on the outside. You can stack bags on top of one another, so they take up less room in the freezer. Thaw and use to make your favorite guacamole or other recipes.
Cubing avocado is another way it can be frozen. Remove the avocado from the peel and mash it.
Lightly coat an ice cube tray with olive oil. Then, scoop the avocado into the tray. Cover with foil or plastic wrap and freeze. Once frozen (at least 6 hours later), pop them from the tray and store in an airtight container or plastic baggie.
CUT IT IN HALF
The simplest way to freeze avocado is just to halve and place in the freezer. Cut the avocado in half and remove the seed. Scoop the avocado out of the peel and place on a cookie sheet.
Spray the avocado lightly with citrus juice (I usually use lime). Then, toss into a freezer baggie and remove the excess air (being careful not to smash the avocado). Toss into your freezer!
