Shhhh, not really, its actually good for you. Super easy to make the night before and have on hand for a few days. Packed full of glow foods that promote a healthy gut you just cant go wrong here. You can substitute any milk you prefer, and I even make with steel cut oats sometimes, equally as yum.
