Can you freeze avocados?

 

Whole avocados do not freeze well, but you can freeze pureed avocados for later use in dips, sauces and spreads. Puree 1 avocado in a food processor or blender with 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice; place in an airtight container and freeze. It should keep for 4-5 months.

For nutrition information and recipes for using avocados, see Superfood: Avocados.
