This product has been a revelation to me - who would have thought! if defrosted as directed - slowly in the fridge, lightly covered with cling film - and then popped into a little lemon juice or salad dressing it is just like fresh avocado and no risk of bruised fruit. Now a regular on my shopping list
Makes The Best Avocado Chocolate Mousse Pudding...
I find these packs of frozen avocados are so easy to use and brilliant for making decadent chocolate mousse puddings, just add raw cocoa, a sweetener of your choice, vanilla or peppermint flavouring, a tin of coconut cream and some melted coconut oil into a food processor, blitz together for 3 or 4 minutes and hey presto after a couple of hours in the fridge, you end up with a very indulgent, velvety smooth chocolate pudding that's been really simple to make yet tastes delicious. Any browning of the avocado product that has occurred when it is defrosted is covered up by the colour of the raw cocoa, so its not a problem and it doesn't appear to affect the taste of the puddings either, because they never last long in our house!
Good idea in theory - terrible in practic3
Good idea in theory - terrible in practice. Having to thaw the whole product out beforehand means that there's a 32 minute window to eat the product as you would a fresh avocado and after that it all turns to brown slime. Not very appetising and threw most of it in the bin - sorry.
Terrible for environment, inferior quality
Fresh avocados come in it's own natural fully biodegradable packaging, do not need freezer storage that takes electricity. This is such a bad product from environmental perspective. And inferior quality to top it off. Why bother, Tesco?
Does not taste as good as fresh avocado. We tried using it for guacamole but the taste was very poor
why have you changed this to include added salt - freezing it preserves it, and salt taste is not great in a fruit smoothie!
Cannot be compared with fresh Avocado.
Maybe I was just unlucky, but when defrosted the avocado was most unpleasant to the taste, sadly it has gone into my bin. To be fair, Tesco refunded the cost and apologized .
Completely disgusting. Tasted nothing like avocado. I had to throw the whole lot away and couldn't even finish the smashed avocado on toast I had made.
The whole lot is bruised and brown. Won't be buying this again.
Many chunks, even before defrosting, had brown are
Many chunks, even before defrosting, had brown areas on them. I had ordered 3 packs, but I'm going to return the unopened packs. If you are looking in person, rather than online, check the appearance. The photo online doesn't have brown bits - mine have!
