Safety Caution, Member crystal3241

I made this recipe today and it was delicious! I used the suggestion of increasing the lime juice to 1/2 cup and using lime jello instead of plain gelatin. The only comment I have it this: when you add the boiling water to the blender, wait just a moment and be sure to hold the lid down with your hand when you turn it on. When I added the boiling water the lid nearly came off from the steam produced. I'll be a little more cautious next time....
