White layer:

2 cups desiccated coconut

1/2 cup coconut butter (melted)

¼ cup coconut cream

2 tsp vanilla

2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

Pinch of salt

Purple Layer:

2 cups desiccated coconut

1/2 cup coconut butter (melted)

1/2 cup coconut cream

2 tablespoons Sujon Blackcurrant powder

2 tsp vanilla

2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

Pinch of salt

Desiccated coconut for sprinkling on top

 Method:

For the white layer: In a blender whiz the coconut until it becomes a fine powder, you may have to stop and scrap down the sides and whiz again. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until all combined.

Place the mixture into about an 8 inch slice tin lined with baking paper. Press down with the base of a cup (or something with a flat surface) to ensure it is firm and even into the tin. Set it aside in the freezer while you make the purple layer.

For the purple layer: Use the same directions as above just adding the purple layer ingredients (more coconut cream and Sujon’s Black currant powder).

Take the white layer out of the freezer and press the purple layer evenly over the top. Let it set in the freezer about 20-30 minutes and then take it out, cutting it into even squares. Keep it in an airtight container in the fridge.

Makes: approx 12-14 pieces, depending how big you want them!

Preparation: 30-35min

Setting time: 20-30min

“It took less than a week for me to notice the effects of Sujon Blackcurrant Powder on a recurring muscle injury. I take the powder daily as well as after long training sessions, and just wish I had tried Sujon Powder before spending hundreds of dollars on sports physiotherapy and podiatrist consultations! Exercising in high heels is really hard on my ankles and it’s great to wake up in the morning without them feeling stiff and sore”.

The USDA has tested over 1000 foods, ranking them by their nutrient density of the top 14 essential nutrients; and then by the amount of calories you eat in order to achieve that density.

(The nutrients are: Protein, thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, monounsaturated fat, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, vitamin B12, folate.)

Nutrient Density is the amount of goodness you get. Nutrient Richness is the amount of calories you have to also eat to achieve the goodness.

And amazingly the Blackcurrant is the world’s number one food for BOTH nutrient density AND for Nutrient Richness. The most goodness and the most goodness for the least calories!

So if you’re into a balanced diet (having good food to balance your fast food and fast lifestyle!): add some Sujon Blackcurrant Powder to your diet – go to http://www.sujon.co.nz/powder.htm for more information.

Japanese women (and men) are now taking a blackcurrant extract that reduces dark rings from under the eyes and stops eye-tiredness from sitting at computer and video game screens.

The not-so secret ingredient is a special antioxidant in dark coloured foods called anthocyanin: it dilates and relaxes blood vessels, especially around and in the eyes! And the extract Japanese are using is taken from pure New Zealand Blackcurrants!

In New Zealand and around the world we can get the same benefits: just get a teaspoon of Sujon Blackcurrant Powder or a large handful of Sujon frozen Blackcurrants to get the equivalent goodness from the extract available in Japan. The powder is available from our website http://www.sujon.co.nz/powder.htm. If you live in New Zealand, then check out our blog http://bit.ly/7RDo1e to see where you can buy frozen blackcurrants in your area.

JUST HOW GOOD ARE ANTIOXIDANTS?
TV One’s hot programme, The Truth About Food, has shown some bizarrely beautiful reasons to think about the food you eat!

And most weeks the talk is about antioxidants! A group of impotent men given a high antioxidant breakfast fruit smoothie showed an improvement in the DNA makeup of their sperm: so much so one couple on the programme got pregnant during the tests.

New independent research suggests that SuJon New Zealand Blackcurrants are the Number One Super Fruit in the world, being the highest antioxidant cultivated berry. This is due to high intensity of natural UV light, a pristine environment, perfect growing conditions and unique varieties to New Zealand. Being the richest natural source of blackcurrant poly phenols available they also outperform bilberry, acai, goji, pomegranate, grape seed, pine bark and blueberry in antioxidant potency.

So if you’re trying to ‘get up the duff’ start taking Sujon Blackcurrant Powder today…..available at http://www.sujon.co.nz/powder.htm
