When they say to use 1/2 a lemon or lime in a recipe, does that mean to include the peel in the nutribullet?  Or am I supposed to peel those things first?

I find the skins to be too bitter and often ruin my Blast. So I say remove them. If you'd like, add a bit of the zest for the healthy oils found in the rinds!

I, too, find the peels to be too much. I sometimes use flesh and juice, and other times I just use the juice...I love what lemon does for my blasts' flavor, especially when I am doing an all-veg, gazpacho type smotthie--the lemon perrks everything up really nicely!
