Mango Laced Black BeansMango Sauce Laced Black Beans

Flavorful and colorful potassium-rich, light and healthy lunch or after-workout snack packed with 13g of fiber and almost 17g of protein! Whip up a big batch to have on hand throughout the week! It’s vegan, too!

Ingredients:
1 – 8 oz can of black beans
1 – small mango
1 – tbsp juice from lime
1 – tbsp juice from lemon
1 – tbsp juice from orange
3 – tbsp chopped cilantro (or to taste – I love cilantro so I tend to add a little extra!)
1 – tbsp maple syrup (I excluded the maple syrup to cut down on the sugar but added ½ – onion diced to complement the juices and cilantro).

Instructions:
Drain and rinse black beans and pour into a large bowl.
Dice the mango and combine with black beans.
Add the lime juice, lemon juice, orange juice and maple syrup to the bowl.
(If eliminating the maple syrup as I did, dice the onion and mix with other ingredients in bowl).
Chop the cilantro and add to bowl.
Mix all ingredients well. Eat right away or refrigerate to enjoy later!
