Today, i felt so happy for producing my very own avocado oil YEAY!!
Last month, i got 129 avocados which were 70% bad and 30% still can be eaten, ate 2 or 3 per day, and due to avocado doesnt last long, they rot and couldnt be eaten anymore. to throw away almost 100 rotten avocado just like that? no way!
i browsed the net searching for tips how to extract avocado oil. searched in youtube, and google, my efforts were in vain. i have to use common sense how to do it. this is how i did it.
you are going to need :-
|for the purpose of sharing, i just used approximately 2kg of bad avocado|
|1 liter coconut cream (optional, you can omit it if you want 100% avocado oil extract)|
|a piece of cloth and a bowl|
|250gram pure coconut oil, (this is also optional, you can also omit this)|
(any brand, i bought this one from my Myanmar client)
|use few table spoon of baby oil (if you cant stand the smell of cooked avocado,|
this is optional, you can omit this if you like)
|pour the coconut cream and mix it with the avocado in a blender machine|
|until really smooth|
|you can add more or if its too thick, you can add some tap water|
|pour everything in a suitable sized pot, cook in slow fire|
|. stir every 5 minutes. you can add the pure coconut oil and the baby oil if you like|
(they are just optional)
|its boiling... and look at the extracted avocado oil surfaced near the bubbles, |
cook until it become a bit dried up..you will notice that the mixture expels water due to heat from the fire
|cook and keep on stirring until the color become dark as shown above.|
see the differencebetween a half cooked avocado (which i want to use as a hair/face mask)
and a well cooked avocado in the red tray
|now to strain the mixture to get the oil.....put the cloth on top of the bowl|
|put the well cooked avocado on it|
|i love this part, especially when i see the oil drips into the bowl. squeeze hard the get the most out of it|
|pour the luxurious avocado oil in a clean dry bottle|
|proud to present, a bottle of homemade avocado oil|
|the waste. i didnt throw it, and|
guess what? it can be used to wash the dishes !
avocado oil is reported to be better than olive oil for its nutrient content. i find that avocado is more than just better.
anyway, for the above home made avocado oil, the content of avocado oil is 85% i can say, and the rest of it is the mixture of the coconut oil and the baby oil. even though mine is only 85%, i believe the avocado dominates the whole oil mixture as the outcome isnt really greasy. maybe the coconut nucliec acid changes with heat or when mixed with the dominant ingredient, they might 'convert and transform' their identity? i dont know, i didnt score chemistry in school haha...
you can omit all except the avocado is you want 100% avocado oil output.
for the baby oil, it helps to give some fragrance to the oil. it was my daughter's request actually as she wants to use it as well, and she hates bad smelling oil ;p..
i like the original smell, just love the originality and authenticity of avocado oil...
lets be grateful to Allah SWT for this magnificent creation, peace :)
