blackened. Avocados are a good healthy food choice so to keeping them in your diet year round is beneficial to you. Avocados are high in mono-unsaturated fatty acids which are great for skin, heart, hair and brain and more!

You can either cut the avocados into slices or you can puree them for freezing.
Always, always wash your avocado with the skin on in water that has a tablespoon of white vinegar in it. Sprays and bacteria from the skins can be transferred to the inside when you slice them
open with a knife.
Cut the avocado in quarters with the skin on. Separate the avocado and pop the pit out. Peel off the skin. Place the pieces into a freezing container with a seal top lid or into Ziploc freezer bags.
Make sure to keep them separated when you freeze them so you can take just the amount you want out of the freezer bag.
The other option is to puree the avocados with a fork or food processor. If you do this, add a little lime or lemon then to the puree. Place into freezer bags in portion sizes for ease of use later
