“…the good news is that a little avocado can actually go a long way — although, for some, that may lead to concerns about how to store any fruit that didn’t make it into that pie or ice cream.
Ferroni thinks she has found the solution: freezing avocado, either in cubes or lightly mashed, then defrosting it for later use in baked goods or smoothies..”
