Are you even human if you’ve never bought avocados in bulk only to have them ALL ripen at the same time? You look at this bowl of eight avocados that need to be used TODAY. They sat in that bowl for a week being bright green and rock hard when they suddenly woke up and realized their full, mushy potential. What gives, avocados?! Never fear, I have compiled 40 recipes that will turn your avocado world upside down. (P.S. Read all the way to the end to find out 4 ways you can freeze your avocados to use them later!)

Must Have Avocado Tools
If you are an avocado lover or plan on trying a few avocado recipes, there are some tools you can buy that will definitely make your life easier! This
3-in-1 Avocado Slicer will make it a bit easier to open, pit, and slice your avocado. Once you open that beautiful avocado, sometimes you realize you only need to use half of it (or your kids ate three avocados yesterday and today they only want 1/4). Instead of letting the other half get brown, you can use an avocado saver like this one or just wrap it very tightly with plastic wrap to get all of the air off the surface of the fruit.
