I remember growing up and my mom would always offer us hot green tea after a meal. Just as mom’s have their secret way of making sure we have our daily dose of vegetables, she found a way to give us antioxidants. I never truly appreciated the underlying benefits until my adult years, when she would explain that it has a potential to fight heart disease and cancer. My mom is an oncology nurse by trade and always provided the family with advice on natural ways to stay healthy.

Since it’s summer and it may be too warm to drink a hot cup of green tea, this iced version with a hint of fruit may do just the trick.
