While many kids in your neighbourhood may be setting up their annual lemonade stand this summer, you can stand above your competition with a fruit smoothie stand. Erecting a fruit smoothie stand in your front yard is an easy way to make a little extra cash for your summer festivities. Offer an abundance of options that will allow your customers to custom order a refreshing beverage. Celebrity chef and "Food Network" star Rachael Ray recommends using low-fat yoghurt to add a little creaminess to your smoothies.

  1. 1

    Erect a folding table in your front yard to initiate the construction process. Place a piece of poster board flat on the table. Create a colourful sign for your smoothie stand using various markers.

  2. 2

    Laminate your smoothie stand sign at a local office supplies store. Duct tape your handmade sign onto the front of the folding table. Place an electric blender on one side of the table.

  3. 3

    Connect the blender to an extension cord that runs to an electrical socket in your house. Place a row of bowls across the front of the table. Fill the bowls with fresh produce, including oranges, bananas, strawberries, blueberries and kiwis.

  4. 4

    Place a large cooler under the table of your smoothie stand. Dump a 2.27kg. bag of ice into the cooler. Lower a carton of low-fat yoghurt and a carton of low-fat vanilla ice cream into the cooler.

  5. 5

    Allow potential customers to handpick their favourite fruits. Drop a few pieces of each fruit into the blender with a handful of ice. Ask customers if they prefer a scoop of yoghurt or ice cream.

  6. 6

    Mix the contents in the blender for about 2 minutes. Pour the fresh fruit smoothie into a plastic cup. Serve with a slice of fresh fruit garnish on the rim of the cup.
