BluePrintCleanse Seasonal Drinks: Pineapple, Apples, and Mint
BPC is best known for their juice cleansing programs, and though I'm quite wary of full-on juice cleanses, I'm a fan of their cold press juices. Up until recently you had to order the juice directly though BPC, but now you can purchase them by the bottle at Whole Foods. They're $8.99 for 16 ounces, which seems more reasonable when you consider that each bottle includes about 3.3 pounds of fruit.
Some of the juices, like spicy lemonade with raw agave and cayenne, and the apple-sweetened green juice are part of their standard collection. The milk shake-esque cashew drink is the only standard flavor not stocked at Whole Foods. But I favor the seasonal juices, especially one made with cold pressed pineapples, apples, and fresh mint. There's just enough mint to give a lift, and the tang of the pineapple is balanced with sweet apples. I don't drink it to "cleanse," I just like how it tastes.
