After a break I’m back to work out sessions and getting back to eating healthy and balanced diet. I’m a true South India by heart and tummy. I looooove my rice and literally cannot live without it. I started reducing the quantity of rice(by 50%) I intake a day and substitute it with veggies, fruits and protein rich diet. I don’t really believe in starving myself in name of diet, but I realized eating protein rich food, and a balanced diet will do wonders to you and your body. I also indulge in my favorite food once a week.

Can you freeze avocado?
Yes and No! I’ve had mixed results with freezing avocados. So it’s going to be a little confusion here. I tried freezing perfect ripe avocados cut into half and lime juice drizzled over the surface. The color of some of the avocados did turn black inspite of lime juice! The texture is what my concern was. I did not like the texture of frozen avocados. So it’s a NO.
YES – I did read something that you can puree avocados and drizzle with lime juice then store in freezer. But I never even went on to experiment this method, this freezer avocados may work for guacomole and for smoothies. I was put off with the texture of frozen avocados on the first go, I decided not to freeze avocados. You can try this though, but I can’t give any inputs or feedback though.
I love to use fresh cut avocados as much as I can. So for this smoothie I did not freeze avocadas.
