Mother comes up with a clever strategy for keeping avocados green – and it involves FREEZING them

No more brown avocados! Savvy mum shares her VERY simple trick for keeping the fruit ripe and ready to eat all year round

  • Australian woman behind a recipe Facebook page revealed her avocado trick
  • She purchases a fully ripe avocado, cuts it into pieces and lines a baking tray
  • Then she puts the avocado onto the baking dish and freezes it for a day
  • After they are frozen she removes them to place them in a freezer bag 

A savvy mum has revealed how freezing sliced avocados fresh out of the skin allows her to have the fruit ripe and ready for meals all year round. 

The Australian woman, who is the founder of popular Facebook page ‘Slow Cooker Recipes & Tips’ has shared photos of her perfectly ripe avocado slices on a sheet of baking paper and revealed how the method helps her organise meals. 

‘This is a little trick I’ve been doing with avocado,’ she said.

‘I heard that you can buy it frozen, but was never able to find it anywhere. So I thought, ‘why not freeze it myself?’. It works amazingly well.’

While many believe that unpeeled avocados will continue to brown in the freezer this is not the case, as long as you follow her instructions. 

‘I buy a fresh avocado, cut it in half, take the pit out and slice it. You can cut  it into chunks too,’ she said.

‘I lay it out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze.’  

After a day of freezing she removes the individual slices, places them into one freezer bag so she can use them one slice at a time. 

By freezing them first, it prevents the slices from sticking together in the bags.

'A lot of you like it in smoothies. I have been letting it thaw and using it on sandwiches or with eggs. It stays nice and green as well,' she said
