Green Tea Mango-Apple Smoothie
Green tea is made when the leaves are steamed and dried, not fermented like in black tea. Green tea isn't as popular as black, though, and accounts for just about 20 percent of all tea consumed. But studies have found that drinking green tea can help reduce the risk of certain diseases like cancer, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.
