I started using the water from young coconuts for the liquid in my almond milk
years ago and it is just the yummiest almond milk I've tasted yet:
Ingredients that you will need:
1/2 cup whole raw organic almonds
2 cups water (to soak the almonds)
3 young coconuts
1 Tbls honey (or to taste)
dash of vanilla
additionally you will need:
soak half cup almonds in water for at least four hours or until the skins come off easily
remove the skins with your fingers
put the skinless almonds in the blender with the water from 3 young coconut (about 6 cups)
if the coconut water doesn't all fit in the blender, just add enough to blend up the almonds and add the rest after blending
Add while still blending 1 Tbls honey or to taste
Add a dash of vanilla for taste (optional)
Strain through a very fine cloth or cheese cloth and there you have the yummiest almond milk around.
Additional things you can do with it are:
You can freeze it in ice cub trays and either put it through a juicer and make ice cream (you may want to add more honey and vanilla)
or you can put some of the frozen almond milk into the blender and add fresh almond milk to it and make a milk shake!!
Let me know what you discover with this recipe. It is my favorite that I have ever made up so I am curious to know what you do with it.

Question: is it good to skin all nuts or just almonds really?
And that sounds great! I've used coconut water for soaking nuts, too, for recipes, and in raw soups... Drinking the coconut soak water for cashews was divine!
