When you have extra avocados in danger of becoming overripe, you can freeze them, with a few caveats. Freezing avocado changes its texture—the water expands. When it thaws, it is no longer smooth-textured. It will be mushy, and thus not right to enjoy in salads or stuffed avocado. However, you can use it to make:

  • Guacamole and other dips and spreads
  • Purées/sauces
  • Salad dressings
  • Smoothies
  •  
    FOOD TRIVIA: Avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable. It is the fruit of the avocado tree. Check out the difference between fruits and vegetables.

    HOW TO FREEZE AVOCADO PULP

    1. HALVE the avocado and remove the pit. Reduce browning by brushing small amounts of lemon juice or vinegar onto the cut flesh. Note that lemon or vinegar may change the taste slightly, but it won’t matter in savory preparations except, possibly, in a smoothie.

    You can also freeze peeled, mashed avocado or purée, but it may leave more surface area exposed.

    2. WRAP the halves very tightly in plastic wrap, so that no air can come into contact with the surface. Further store them in a freezer bag, with the air pressed out; or use a vacuum sealer.

    3. THAW at room temperature for about an hour.

    Avocados are packed health benefits. One ounce of avocado contains only 50 calories, 3 grams of monounsaturated fat (good fat), 1 gram of dietary fiber, and no saturated fat, cholesterol or sodium.

    The fruit also provides nearly 20 essential vitamins and minerals. Plus, avocados enable the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients from other foods with which they’re eaten, such as alpha- and beta-carotene, as well as lutein and vitamins A, D, K and E.
