Place the linseeds in a dry blender, cover and blend until ground into a fine powder. Add the orange juice, yogurt, mixed berries (or blueberries) and banana. Cover and blend until smooth and creamy.
Use any frozen berries and partially thaw them first. When strawberries are in season, use fresh, hulled strawberries in place of frozen berries. Experiment with different flavours of yogurt too—honey-flavoured or passionfruit-flavoured yogurt would be delicious.
