While avocados have always been a culinary delight, the frustration among avocado aficionados has been real due to their notoriously short window of perfect ripeness. Enter the innovative hack that is poised to revolutionise the way we savor this beloved superfood.

The hack was shared to the Delish Recipes Family Facebook group freezing and included mashing avocado to prevent it from turning brown.

“I’ve started freezing avocado! I mash them up and I use a small cookie scoop,” the blogger explained.

“Then freeze! They don’t turn brown AT ALL and when they set up firm in a few hours I throw them in a gallon ziploc bag. I don’t add anything to them.

“No more nasty brown color or throwing expired ones away. I freeze about two bags at a time. They thaw beautifully too. Try it!”
