How To Extend The Life Of Avocados 

Avocados can be very tricky when it comes to ripeness and usage. Most times when you buy avocados from the store, they are hard and not ready to use. So, you let them soften up in the fridge or on the counter and before you know they have jumped right into being ripe! So what do you do next if you can’t use them right away? Well,  there is a way to extend the life of ripe avocados and it won’t take more than 5 minutes. Check out the instructions below for how to extend the life of avocados:

Items Needed:


  • Ripe Avocados
  • Large Ziploc Freezer Bags
  • Lemon Juice


  1. Remove all the insides of the ripe avocados and scoop them into the freezer bag.
  2. Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoons of lemon juice to the same bag.  Close the bag slightly and mash the ingredients together in the bag.
  3. Seal tightly and store in the freezer for as long as needed. When you are ready to use the avocados pop the bag out of the freezer and place in cold water for fast defrosting. If you don’t need it right away you can also defrost them in the fridge overnight.
