Watermelon meets lemonade in this Refreshing Mint Watermelonade. It’s a healthy and delicious drink recipe on a hot summer day. Sweetened naturally with fruit and a touch of honey!

How’s THAT for a name?! Screw SEO, I just couldn’t come up with watermelonade and not use it! In other news, today’s post is dedicated to the most glorious invention since indoor plumbing, the iPhone.

I seriously have no idea how I lived before the existence of a smart phone. I must have been very dumb. While it’s nice to get a break from it every now and then, when we are apart it feels like I have a phantom limb. It should be there, but it’s not.

Refreshing Mint Watermelonade // watermelon meets lemonade in this refreshing summer drink, sweetened with honey! thehealthymaven.comBesides it’s obvious uses for email, phone, text, I also depend entirely on it for answering the 132497987324 questions that pop into my head every day. Google is also something I wonder how I lived without.

Here is a prime example of why I need an iPhone with me at all times. So I’m in the grocery store picking up a watermelon. There’s 3 other ladies around me knocking on all of the watermelons trying to pick the perfect one. Of course I do the same and begin knocking away on some melons (lol). But here’s the thing, I have no idea why.

It seemed like the logical thing to do but I had no clue what I should be listening or feeling for. After knocking on about 5 of them, I decided it was time I google what the heck I was doing. Thankfully I had my trusty iPhone to answer all of life’s questions including “why should you knock on watermelons?”

Refreshing Mint Watermelonade // watermelon meets lemonade in this refreshing summer drink, sweetened with honey! thehealthymaven.comAs it turns out, to pick the perfect watermelon it should feel/sound hollow when you knock on it. You learn something new everyday! So I joined back in with my new club of melon knockers until I found the best watermelon in the bunch!

I actually live in fear of what someone might find if my phone got stolen or lost and a stranger looked up my search history. I suspect they will be somewhat astounded by the number of medical conditions I look up, A LOT of random facts about Montana (I was there 2 weeks ago and apparently very curious) and articles about English bulldogs (don’t ask…).

Now that I’ve bared some of my shameful googling habits, I’m sort of feeling like I should go hide in the corner with this Refreshing Mint Watermelonade. At least I’ll have my iPhone to keep me company.

  1. I am attached to my smartphone…ish…but I’m also really good at leaving it away from me for an hour or so at a time. The last thing I googled was the price of a flight to the UK….which isn’t THAT embarrassing. The embarrassing part is me actually thinking I could afford a flight to the UK.

  2. Yummm! I’ve been obsessed with watermelon smoothies and juice lately. So good!

    My hubby and I refer to the iPhone as “baby Jesus” because it has the answers to all questions in life hahaha

  3. Haha, yes, take a stand against SEO! Watermelonade for the win … I love this name, it needs to become a thing. And oh my gosh, I can relate too much to the iPhone incident. Waaay too much 🙂
    Pinning this perfect summer drink!

  4. I had to Google SEO. You’ve mentioned it several times already but I somehow always have been too lazy to look it up. Now I know 😉
    Would you suggest to use sparkling or regular water? Sparkling water would give it more of an actual lemonade feeling, wouldn’t it?

  5. If Google tells me to knock on watermelon, then I should probably do it. And one of these days, I will actually get a smartphone…eventually.

    1. And by smartphone I mean iPhone, because my current android isn’t particularly smart despite the smartphone label…

      1. Yeah I totally know what you mean! I had a Blackberry for way too long, then an android…then in April I finally got an iPhone. It rocks my world to see the freaking emojis people send me and comment with on IG!!!!

  6. This looks so good, and I have everything right in my kitchen! Yay! This rarely happens!

    I know I have looked up some pretty crazy stuff, bit my history must have been cleared not too long ago
    After watching movies, I always look up each actor in it to see what other movies they’ve been in.

  7. Well I personally had no idea about this knocking on watermelons method! But hey, if google says it, it must be true.

    This drink is like THE most refreshing thing.

  8. This will make you laugh – My son likes to fight with Siri and often talks to her in Hebrew. I mean, at least he has learned something at Hebrew school and bothers to use what he learns?

  9. Are you attached to your smart phone? What a silly question.

    Actually, I should google now how to know if my watermelon will have seeds. I had a watermelon mojito once. It was amazing and I thought I was drunk. Then the bar tender told me it was a mocktail.
