PSA: You Can Freeze Avocados for Up to 6 Months

Look, avocados are pretty important to us. We’ll always pay extra for them at Chipotle, and we love them whether they’re smashed on toast for breakfast or frozen into ice cream for dessert.

Which is why we hate seeing those leftover halves turn brown. Luckily, we discovered a genius trick for never wasting another avocado, and all you need is a freezer. Here’s how to do it.

Step 1: Slice the avocado in half, peel off the skin and remove the pit. Then brush the whole thing with lemon juice.

Step 2: Tightly wrap the avocado halves in plastic wrap, leaving no room for air. Place the wrapped avocado into a large freezer bag. Put it in the freezer for up to six months.

Step 3: When you’re ready to eat it, set the avocado on the counter until it thaws completely. It won’t taste exactly the same when it’s sliced, but whip it up into guac and you’ll never be able to tell the difference.
