Will the guacamole taste the same when it thaws out? How long can you freeze it for? Can all types of guacamole be frozen? How do you thaw it?
Read on for answers to each of these questions in thisshort guide to freezing and thawing guacamole.
Frozen guacamole will keep for up to three months. This means you can freeze guacamole well in advance of an upcoming event or preserve party leftovers well after guests have departed.
Pro Tip: You can portion guacamole for freezing as needed. Scoop guacamole into ice trays or smaller plastic containers for preportioned, ready-to-make snacks and appetizers.
Depending on the time you have available, there are two ways to thaw frozen guacamole.
Whether the thought came to you while preparing for a future festivity or while cramming leftover party snacks into an overstuffed fridge, you may have wondered, “Can you freeze guacamole?”
Guacamole can absolutely be frozen, saved, and thawed – and it will still taste the same when served. But there are a few procedural pieces to bear in mind when storing guacamole leftovers or prepared guacamole appetizers in the freezer. The simple answer is yes, but this is just the tip of the green iceberg. As mentioned, you can freeze guacamole, but to ensure fresh guacamole for serving we recommend making a base without any of the add-in ingredients for freezing. The extra ingredients can be added later when ready to serve.
No matter which thawing method you choose, use the time while the mixture is melting to prepare any fresh ingredients you wish to add to your guacamole mixture.
