Pintertest Kitchen 20: It's Not You Watermelon Drink, It's the Watermelon?

Or maybe it's me?


I haven't had the best luck with Pinterest lately.


But I will also say I haven't been trying very much either.


A Pinterslump, if you will.

I made this watermelon drink for bible study on Tuesday night and I didn't love it.


And I'm mostly going to blame the fruit.


It was bland to begin with.


Which didn't help.


But the drink texture was strange, too.


It didn't look like the picture.


A little thick?


Gritty, even?


Not very refreshing.


And not as sweet as I expected it to be.


Also, this is my first time trying coconut water.


And I'm just going to come out and say it.


It's not my favorite.

So, sorry watermelon drink.


I won't be repeating you.

  1. I feel you on my recent Pinterest duds too. Especially frustrating when you stay up until 1am to make a coffee cake for a "fancy" breakfast for hub and then it's just....meh. It's ok though, who really needs more than 4 hours of sleep right? :) Thanks for hosting!

  2. I feel like I try to avoid gritty drinks at all costs. I have to say, too, that I'm glad the mint limeade wasn't the bomb you were talking about. I have that pinned and have high hopes for it!

    I hope you and the girlies are doing well with Dave being gone <3

  3. Twenty-three years ago Eddie and I had the bright idea to create a watermelon drink and quickly realized that you can't drink watermelon, it must be eaten. I'm sorry to hear that this hasn't changed as I'm sure your hopes were as high as ours and I though for sure you'd pull it off. :)

  9. Linked up here last month for the first time and I have to say this is one of the friendliest link parties I've ever done. Sorry your watermelon drink didn't try out so great, I've had a lot of Pinterest duds lately too.
