  • 4 avocados
  • 1 lime


  1. Cut each avocado in half.

  2. Remove the pits and discard.

  3. Take a spoon and gently scoop the avocado flesh away from the skin, so you have 8 avocado halves.

  4. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

  5. Cut a lime in half and rub it across the parchment paper.

  6. Lay the avocado halves, cut side down, on the parchment paper.

  7. Squeeze the rest of the lime juice over the avocado halves.

  8. Place the tray of avocado halves in the freezer for about four hours, or until they are frozen.

  9. Transfer the frozen avocado halves to freezer-safe, gallon-sized, zippered bags.

  10. The avocado halves can be kept in the freezer for up to one month.

  11. When ready to use, take the desired amount of avocado halves out of the bag and allow them to thaw in a bowl at room temperature, for about two hours.
