The energy boost! The clearer skin! The sleeping-like-a-baby snoozefests!

But along with all the potential benefits of a juice cleanse, some have expressed concern that the cold-pressed stuff might also give you a bit too much of a sugar rush (thanks to all those tasty fruits packed in, sans fiber).

Even Dr. Frank Lipman told us last week that “juicing can be good for you—but you can also get a lot of sugar without realizing it.”

Enter BluePrint’s new reduced-sugar Inspiration Cleanse.

The OG detox-in-a-bottle brand’s latest cleanse consists of five different BluePrint juices, including Dandelion Drive (dandelion, romaine lettuce, cucumber, bell pepper, celery, red onion, lemon, and sea salt) and Watercress Warrior (watercress, kale, spinach, cucumber, celery, and lemon).

With no fruit in any of the blends, the regimen contains less sugar than BluePrint’s Excavation Cleanse, which has 21–30 grams of sugar per bottle. Three of the five juices in the Inspiration Cleanse are in the 10–15 gram range, while its Cashew Milk and Green Juice have 21 grams and 24 grams, respectively.

And beginners, be warned: The company notes that the cleanse is “no joke.”

BluePrint joins brands like Vim + Vigor and Urban Remedy, which offer fruit-free cleanses and low-glycemic options to those concerned that their detox euphoria is really just a spike in blood sugar levels.
