Sujon Smoothie bowl


2 tablespoons Sujon Blackcurrant powder

Chia seeds – for added topping


Blend the Sujon Blackcurrant powder and juice in a blender until smooth


Shirley Francis was kind enough to send us in her delicious Blueberry Bran Muffin recipe. Her tip is to freeze batches of them so you can put them in your lunch box. The mix of both bran and blueberries are very good for your health.

40gms Butter
2 tablespoons  golden syrup (Cream together)
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
( Beat again)
Then add the following:

1 Cup Bran Flakes
2 Cups plain flour
2 Heaped teaspoons Baking Powder ( sifted with flour)
1 Cup Milk
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda (dissolved in milk)
1 Cup Frozen Sujon Blueberries

Add the bran flakes then half the flour, then the fruit, then the rest of the flour,  lastly add milk and soda mix sometimes a little more milk is required.  I like a moist mixture.  Use an ice cream scoop to put mixture into greased patty tins this is so much  easier than with spoons I like the one that pushes the mixture out.

I cook the muffins for approx 20 minutes at 200 degree C or 425 F.

For a tasty and easy lunch idea, try this boysenberry beef wrap…
6 Mountain bread (thin bread wraps)
12 lettuce leafs
150 g Smoked beef sliced thinly
4 Tbspn cream cheese
1 Cup SUJON boysenberries

– Lay the wraps out and spread one end with cream cheese,
– Lay the lettuce, smoked beef and then;
– Boysenberries at the other end and
– Gently roll towards the cream cheese which will hold it all together.
– Cut in half and fold around a serviette, serve up!

An exceptionally versatile summer salsa.

This is an exceptionally versatile summer salsa: its intensely vibrant colour and flavour goes well with all grilled meats, especially grilled sausages, as well as cold meats: from smoked salmon to roasted turkey cuts.
And it makes a superb vegetarian summer salad that can be enjoyed with a light chilled off-dry red or rose or a crisp white wine.
Blackcurrants are related to the gooseberry and NZ-grown Blackcurrants have the same flavour molecule in them (methoxypyrazine) as NZ-grown sauvignon blanc: so despite the colour differences NZ Blackcurrants and Sauvignon blanc can pair very well together.

This recipe is from Sophie Grigson’s book ‘Organic – A New Way of Eating’

➢ 200g blackcurrants (this recipe is perfect for the frozen NZ-grown Blackcurrants now available in supermarkets)
➢ 4 teaspoons caster sugar
➢ 1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
➢ Handful shredded mint leaves
➢ 400g tomatoes (skinned seeded and finely diced for an elegant salsa or chopped with skin-on and seed-in for a more robust salsa)
➢ 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
➢ salt and pepper to taste.


1. Put Blackcurrants in pan with sugar and vinegar, Stir over low-medium heat until blackcurrant juices start to run, sugar dissolved and blackcurrants coated in a richly purple-red sweet-sour juice (about 4 minutes: don’t let it catch: slower better than hotter).
2. Take off heat and let cool. Mix all ingredients except half the shredded mint: add salt and pepper to taste.
3. Set aside for an hour before serving.
4. Sprinkle with remainder of shredded mint for serving.

This is so easy it’s embarrassing when people ask you for the recipe. It tastes creamy but it’s got no fat added and it tastes so good you can’t believe it’s good for you. It’s a superb breakfast drink or can be watered down more for a very relaxing non-alcoholic drink on a hot summers night. And it could be the ideal next-morning pick-you-up: Blackcurrants relax blood vessels in the body, and hangover headaches are caused by blood vessels tightening around the grey matter. So if you feel better you know why!

You need:
I cup Sujon Blackcurrants
1 cup chopped apple (leave skin on but take out the core)
1 cup apple juice
1 cup ice cubes
What to do:

– Add all to blender and blend for minute or so until creamy and no large fruit pieces left.
– Stir occasionally if it’s left sitting before drinking.
– Go for it!
