Blog - Keto Lifestyle - How to Freeze Avocado

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.

Freezing avocados is really easy to do, and I m going to show you two different ways to freeze avocados today so that you can enjoy your favorite Avocado recipes all year round! Slice the avocado in half, peel and seed. Brush the avocado halves with a bit of lemon juice and wrap them tightly in a clingy plastic wrap**. Don t leave any room for air this means the plastic wrap should cling into the curve where the seed was.

Laura – This is a great method to prevent browning from oxidation. The only change that I would make is to use foil instead of plastic wrap. Plastics can leak chemicals into food, especially food that has acid content like lemon juice.
