On Sunday, say “Be My Valentine” with this deliciously simple coffee drink, which will warm you up—or cool you down, if you add ice cream.

Sweetened condensed milk adds a rich, creamy texture and sweet flavor. Several organic brands should be available at well-stocked natural food stores.

Prep time is only 5 minutes. Cook time is also 5 minutes.

Prepare to receive mocha-flavored kisses!
