Home chef shares clever and simple hack that could solve your avocado problem

Published on

A home cook revealed a simple hack to store avocado so they can be ripe and ready to eat at all times, even when they’re not in season, without losing the delicious green fruit tastes.

The expert shared a post on her Facebook page explaining how you can freeze avocados so you can eat it whenever you want – even when they’re not in season.

In the original Facebook post the woman used a cookie scoop to make dozens of avocado balls from her ripe fruit.

She stuck them on a tray lined with tin foil, covered them, and then popped them into the freezer for a few hours.

When they are all firm and frozen solid, you can take the balls off the tray and put them into freezer bags to optimize your use of space.

To thaw them out, simply pop the required amount into the fridge for 30 minutes and the balls should return to their original softness – although they might be quite cold.

Another top tip suggested in the comments was to add a splash of lemon juice to the avocado if you were slicing or mashing it, because that will prevent the fruit from going brown.

Other people in the comments were quick to share how they freeze their avocados in slices too.

First, find a perfectly ripe avocado. This is important.

You don’t want the fruit to be under or over, it needs to be in that sweet spot where it is soft and deep green color.

Then, follow the same steps as for freezing balls of avocado, but just slice the avocado instead. You can spray each slice with a squirt of lemon juice.

People in the comments were big fans of this clever hack.

This is amazing, thankyou I have had so many issues trying to freeze vegetables

one woman said.

I love it and I can be fussy, I do prefer it mashed if it is frozen though

said another.

However some did say that the end result of frozen avocado isn’t quite the same as eating them fresh.

It does change the texture, it is less creamy somehow so not ideal on its own

said one woman.

But it could be a great alternative for smoothies or dips.

If you want to give it a try, home cooks suggest avocados can be frozen for up to six months.
