Avocado's - Can you freeze them?

I'm getting a bunch of avocados today from a nice neighbor but I know I won't be able to eat them all before they get too ripe. Can I freeze them whole or even cut them up and freeze them? Has anyone ever tried that? Thanks!!

I have been freezing them pureed as babyfood with breastmilk and they work very well like that. I also froze some in slices and they seemed okay, but didn't keep the color as well.

They do hold in the refrigerator pretty well if you let them ripen then stick them in the fridge when they feel ready to eat. You can at least get a few more days out of them that way.

I freeze mine too. I cut cut them into chunks without the skin. I put each chunk into an ice cube slot of an ice cube tray and freeze them. Once they are frozen, I transfer them to a freezer bag (I do it this way so they don't stick together). They freeze great. I havent had any turn brown or anything. We just take how ever many chunks out of the bag and defrost. The baby loves them!
