How to make avocado oil at home?
Step 1: Gather the Ingredients
To create your homemade avocado oil, you’ll need ripe avocados, a knife, a spoon, a blender or food processor, and a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
Step 2: Extract the Avocado Flesh
Slice the ripe avocados in half and extract the pits. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh and transfer it into the blender or food processor.
Step 3: Blend the Avocado
Blend the avocado flesh until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency. The blending process helps to release the oil from the fruit’s flesh.
Step 4: Separate the Oil
Position a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth atop a sanitized bowl or container. Pour the blended avocado mixture onto the strainer, allowing the oil to separate and drip into the container. You can use a spoon to gently press the mixture, encouraging more oil to come out.
Step 5: Store the Oil
Transfer the collected avocado oil into a dark-colored glass bottle or container. Ensure a tight seal before storing it in a cool, dark location. Properly stored, homemade avocado oil can last for a few weeks.
