The True Forbidden Fruit

Avocados are one of my favorite foods of all time. There is something about their creamy texture and delicious flavor that send me over the edge. Not to mention the many health benefits! These fabulous little green pieces of heaven are on sale at Ralph's right now for $0.88. I was thinking, how amazing would it be to be able to have fresh, ripe avocado any time I want, for months at a time? I loved this idea so I put it into action.  I bought 17 and decided to freeze them!

I started by gathering 8 of the 17 avocados that I bought (the rest were too hard), cut them in half and removed the seeds.
I carefully scooped out each avocado half, placed them in a plastic container and squeezed lime on them to reduce browning from air exposure.
After they were coated with lime, I used 3 quart size storage bags and was able to fit 5 halves into each bag. I ate one half :) 

Now, whenever I need avocado, I can just take out as much as I need and let it defrost. Perfection
