Perhaps you meant to say to place the lime in the press as well, yeah? 😄 Thank you for the sweet (and spicy) ideas! Grateful!

Hello, Correct, you can place the lime quartered unpeeled directly into the press ad skip grinding, or peel the lime and grind with the other produce.

Good recipes but I'd like to know if I can just use a blender and get the same results.

Hi Kevin, You can use a blender, but it will definitely taste a little different and have a different mouth-feel. You can see more about the differences between blending (smoothies) and juicing here:

Not super into the spicy but pretty interesting. Without chilies it's A+
