How do I freeze avocados?
By Joanne A.
A comment about adding lemon or lime juice. You only need to do that if you don't place each baggie of mashed avocado in the freezer right away before the discoloration has time to occur. I've never added when freezing and never had discoloration. Of course you will want to add the lemon or lime juice when making guacamole, etc. after thawing if not going to be eaten in just a few minutes.

Can you freeze avocados for use later?

You most certainly can but they need to be mashed first. Stir in a tad bit of lemon juice (not too much or they'll be too watery) and freeze in individual freezer bags with air removed. I do this whenever they are on sale and they stay in good condition for about three or four months. They're great to use for sandwiches, salad dressing, dip and even mixing with a fresh avocado for guacamole.

From the website avocado.org
"When you have an abundance of fresh fruit, consider freezing it. Although avocados are not satisfactorily frozen whole or sliced, pureed avocados freeze very well and can be used in salads, sandwiches and dips.
Wash, seed, and peel the fruit as described above. Puree the flesh, adding one tablespoon of lemon juice for each two pureed avocados. Pack the puree into a rigid container, leaving 1 inch of headspace. Seal and label the containers. Freeze and use within four to five months." (02/04/2007)
