Cooking Tip: Freeze Ripe Avocados

I discovered something by accident the other day: If you freeze a large, bordering on overly ripe avocado (the kind of big ones that grow in tropical areas), when you defrost it, the flesh will naturally come out like a puree.

This takes almost no effort. Once you’re frozen avocado is defrosted, cut it open and scoop out the goodness.

It’s a perfect side to a Mexican dish. You could even drink it as a smoothie.
