My daughter and I both love fresh guacamole but I like to be able to get my avocados on sale. When they come on sale I always buy extra so that I can make a large batch of guacamole and have some left over to freeze so we can enjoy it at a later date.
Though I usually make my guacamole with tomatoes and onions, if I know I am going to freeze it I make a more basic version as tomatoes and onions will turn it all watery if it is frozen. Then you end up with guacamushy and nobody likes that.
Can You Freeze Guacamole?
You can absolutely freeze guacamole but it is best to keep the recipe simple; avocado, salt, lime juice, and a bit of cilantro. If you do want to add in tomatoes and onions you can do this when you thaw it, just before serving.
How To Freeze Guacamole
To freeze your guacamole, put a freezer bag into a cup or a wide mouth mason jar. Scoop some guacamole into the bag (as much as you think you will eat in a sitting).
Try to shake all the guacamole to the bottom of the bag and squeeze out all of the air before sealing the bag. I like to use the straw trick – seal up the bag with a straw in one corner. Suck all of the air out of the bag with the straw and then pull the straw out quickly and seal the little open part of the bag.
Follow these instructions until the guacamole is all bagged up in the serving size of your choice. Lay out the bags and get them as flat as you can so that they will stack nicely in the freezer.
For the best texture and flavor, use your frozen guacamole within about three months
