The leftover avocado doesn't need to be thrown away; if you have some avocado pulp, freeze it.
Method 1 of 2: Whipped Avocado
Step 1. Choose very ripe avocados
Step 2. Wash the avocados you want to freeze
Step 3. Peel off the avocado
To remove the skin, cut the avocado in half around the stone. Separate the halves. Use a spoon to remove the lump.
Step 4. Beat the avocados
Place the avocado in a food processor, and for every two avocados, add a scoop of lemon juice. Knock.
If you can't beat the avocados, mash them with a fork
Step 5. Place the whipped avocados in a sealed container
Leave a small space between the contents and the lid.
Step 6. Label with identification and date
Avocados can be kept frozen for up to 5 months.
Step 7. Use
Once frozen, whipped avocado can be used in sauces, guacamole, soups, salads, sandwiches or savory fillings and for mixes that use avocado.
To thaw, leave the package in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours before using; this process will cause a gradual thaw. If you can't wait that long, put it in a bowl and pour running water over it
Method 2 of 2: Easy way
Avocado frozen by this method will not be as beautiful as fresh and will be more difficult to cut than smoothed. However, it's quick and very useful if you're going to use it on dishes or baking pasta.
Step 1. Cut a ripe avocado in half
Wrap in aluminum foil or plastic film.
Step 2. Place each half in the freezer
Step 3. Once frozen, place each half in a sealed container
Attach a date and identification tag.
Step 4. To defrost, place at room temperature for one hour or place in a microwave on "Thaw" function or low power for less than one minute
The resulting pulp goes well with guacamole, chocolate pudding, cake batter, etc.
- Whole avocados cannot be frozen; they end up softening. Chunks and slices don't work either - the avocado needs to be pounded or crushed.
- White vinegar can be used in place of lemon juice. The juice or vinegar will help keep the avocado from turning brown.
