The juice cleanse craze has hit a new level. Today, Gilt City began offering a vampire-inspired “Blood Cleanse” tied to the CW network’s new series The Originals.

In anticipation of The Vampire Diaries spinoff, Joulebody created a three-day cleanse that promises to “make you feel like you could live forever,” and “keep you on the prowl morning through the night.”

There isn’t any actual blood in there. In fact, unlike the Mikaelson’s — “the original vampire family of New Orleans” — diet, these liquid meals are vegan.

The selection of five raw, vegan, and gluten-free beverages — made with ingredients like strawberries, beets, and cayenne pepper — are all blood-red, with names like “Kale or Be Kale,” “Heart of Darkness,” and “Blood Sugar.” Each bottle bears the Fleur de Lys of the Bayou, where The Originals is set.

In addition to promoting the cleanse, Gilt also reminds shoppers that The Originals premieres Oct. 3 on the CW. The Joulebody Originals Blood Cleanse (click here to buy it for $119) is on offer until Oct. 1.
