How to Freeze Avocado

Posted by on in Keto Pantry

If you are avocado lovers, this is a great tip! Avocados are great for the ketogenic diet.  It's one of the few foods that can be eaten "straight up"with nothing added and still remains balanced at a 4:1 ratio with the fiber subtracted.  The instructions are super simple...

1. Peal and remove the pit from the avocado.

2. Keep the entire halves intact, cut into cubs or mash into a puree.

3. Place into freezer zip top bags or use a Foodsaver.  If you want individual portions, use the snack size baggies.  The most important part is that you remove all the air from the bag.  This is what prevents the avocado from turning brown.

4. Thaw in the refrigerator and use as soon as it is soft.  The consistency will be different than a fresh avocado, but it works very well for including into other recipes such as guacamole or smoothies.
