As soon as I saw these at the store, I knew I had to try them! I had searched for frozen avocado before at the recommendation of one of my patients. She told me she found frozen peeled avocado halves at Trader Joe’s. Unfortunately, when I inquired about them in store, the employee replied with demeaning look “we haven’t had those for EIGHT YEARS,” My heart was broken. I continued to keep an eye out for them at other stores, but had no luck for months. I finally found them this week at QFC and knew immediately I had to have them! I have since made them into a simple guacamole with garlic powder, lime juice, and salt. I tried them before adding anything and was pleasantly surprised by the flavor. This particular brand adds citric acid, ascorbic acid, and salt to help preserve them, but it doesn’t change the taste much. This avocado would make an excellent sandwich spread, dip, or addition to a smoothie!
What I Love About It
THE ABILITY TO HAVE AVOCADOS ANY TIME! This is how it usually goes:
Buy avocado, not quite ripe
Wait patiently for it to ripen
WAIT PATIENTLY TOO LONG
throw away rotten avocado
I am so excited to avoid this struggle in the future! These avocados have a little salt added, but only 70mg per 3/4c serving. For the ability to have avocados at any time, I am happy to take the 70mg sodium. Avocados are a great source of anti-inflammatory Omega-9 fats, and a healthier alternative to many dips and spreads.
Where To Find It
I found this one at QFC in West Seattle. It was about $5.50 for 16oz. Not bad compared to fresh avocados that go bad on me half the time! Since QFC and Fred Meyer are owned by the same company, I wasn’t surprised to also find them on Fred Meyer’s website. Check your local grocery store in the frozen fruit section!
