"Tropical Carrot" Leo Horoscope Smoothie with Turmeric

By Joya
Vegan and paleo Tropical Carrot Smoothie recipe featuring adaptogenic JOYÀ Glow turmeric elixir blend

This Tropical Carrot beauty is the Leo smoothie from our Smoothie Horoscope collection. And just like the fierce and passionate energy of a Leo, it’s packed with energizing herbs and spices and vibrant tropical flavors while serving up a little heat. 

Loaded with golden goodness (mango, carrot, and our Restore Turmeric Superblend) and creamy, hydrating coconut, and finished with a cayenne kick, this beach resort-inspired smoothie (or smoothie bowl) takes you on a tropical getaway without ever leaving your home. It’s packed with nutrients and fiber, and thanks to our Restore Turmeric Superblend, delivers delicious support for stress response, immunity, digestion, inflammation and skin health. Wellness has never tasted so good.


  • ½ cup chopped carrot
  • ⅓ cup chopped mango
  • small pinch ground cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp coconut butter (or ⅓ cup shredded dried coconut or ½ cup chopped fresh coconut)
  • 1 tbsp JOYÀ Restore Turmeric Superblend
  • handful crushed ice
  • ½ cup or more coconut water - to desired consistency (use less for a thicker smoothie bowl) 
  • optional: a dried + pitted date, honey, maple syrup or other sweetener, to taste
  • optional toppings/mix-ins: shredded or flaked coconut, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, bee pollen* (or if enjoying as a smoothie bowl, granola and fruit)

    *Note: omit bee pollen to keep the recipe vegan.


  1. Add all ingredients (except toppings/mix-ins) to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and no chunks remain.
  2. Pour into glass(es), optionally add toppings/mix-ins and enjoy!

Pro Tip: Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 24 hours. Alternatively, pour leftovers into an ice cube tray and use to make other smoothies.
