"Holy guacamole!!": Today Extra host tries avocado hack that REALLY works
The hack shows a really fast and smooth way to remove an avocado seed.
"Holy guacamole!! Saw this hack a few months ago and I finally got to "avo-go" to see if it works. 🥑🤯" she captioned the video.
"I saw this on TikTok about a month ago, and I haven't tried it out yet, so let's give this a go," the 43-year-old says in the beginning of the video as she picks up half of an avocado with a seed in it.
According to Russell, instead of using a knife, you put your index finger and middle finger in a V-like shape under the seed while cupping the back of the avocado with your thumb. Once you apply pressure to the seed, it should "pop" out.View this post on Instagram
Many were impressed that the hack actually worked and appreciated the how-to video (which broke down the "pop" of the seed in slow motion).
"Oh my, where have you been all my life. I'd have 10 fingers otherwise", one commenter joked.
