But I'm cheap.
Throw the skins (picture #2) in your compost. Put the peeled almonds in your Vitamix, Blendtec, Ninja, whatever blender you use. Add four cups of filtered water and blend until there are no more audible chunks in there. Pour into your nut milk bag and get to straining! The last picture above is the pulp after lots of squeezing.
Pulp from one cup of processed almonds (skins removed)
2 Tablespoons of maple syrup
2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 Teaspoon of vanilla
Dash of smoked paprika (optional. Don't go crazy here if it is the hot kind. I used 1/4 of a teaspoon and could have used probably 1/2 of that.)
I then rolled them in dry unsweetened coconut that had cinnamon mixed in.
