Video: How to cut an avocado (the easy way)


Avocados rock! They are a great source of the “good fats” (monounsaturated fats), which helps raise your good LDL cholesterol levels. But many people don’t know the simple trick to making an avocado easy to cut. Check out the 40 second video below.

And if you’ve been afraid to add an avocado to a green smoothie, start with 1/8 to 1/4th of an avocado. It adds such a rich and creamy taste.

Peace, love and leafy greens,

Avocado cutting tips

  • Make sure you hit the avocado seed hard enough to get the knife stuck in it.
  • Don’t cut your avocado until ripe. It should not be firm or mushy when you press it. It should be somewhere right in the middle.
  • Peeling the avocado gets more of the fruit flesh than if you were to scoop it out with a spoon.

    This is the funnest little short on cutting an avocado. We are lucky enough to have an avocado tree in our yard, and adding avo’s to smoothies makes them super creamy and rich. I love the little doggy bark at the end of the video too 🙂

    Hi,
    I thought I saw a post about flash freezing avocados. Can you do this? If so, how? If not, is there a way for me to freeze extra avocado for my smoothies? Thanks! You gals are the best!

    Sincerely,
    Jamey

    Hi Jamey!
    One of the best ways to freeze your avocado is to purée or smash it up, put it in an air tight container, and freeze it. By doing this the avocado will freeze more evenly 🙂

    I love using avocado in smoothies with cocoa powder. It’s a delicious way to make smoothies taste like a dessert – and the consistency is like a chocolate pudding if you add enough avocado. Mmm.

    I make each smoothie recipe for myself – so I get a smoothie for today and a smoothie for tomorrow with each recipe. When I use a recipe that calls for avocados, is it okay to drink the second half after it’s been in the fridge over night? Avocados go bad so quickly. Just had me wondering. Thanks!

    Hi Annie,

    Definitely! All of our recipes, including those with avocado will keep in your refrigerator for up to two days in an air tight container. Adding a little bit of lemon juice will help preserve all of their green goodness!
