Pantry Tip: Freezing Avocado with Lime Juice
Avocado can be a costly & wasteful purchase. If you only use a quarter at a time, the best option is to freeze the rest.
The best way to do this I find is to mash up an avocado using a fork, then squeeze the juice of 1/2 to 1 lime on then mash up again to combine.
The lime juice helps the avocado stay looking fresh & green. It fades a bit which means I use it up in smoothies for up to 10 days.
I freeze this spread out on parchment, using a fork to leave gaps throughout. This makes it easier to break up into portions.
Place in the freezer and when frozen, break off portion sized chunks and store in a suitable container. When needed just pull out a piece and throw into say a smoothie. I use these for smoothies. It’ll probably work for guacamole, but I haven’t tried it yet.
An option if your hands are too sore to mash up the avocado is to whizz up the avocado & lime juice in a mini food processor. It’s smoothie which doesn’t matter as it’s only going into a smoothie!!
