1 cup whole raw almonds (not toasted or roasted, etc) $1.10 per cup (A 3 lb bag of raw almonds is 9 cups and costs $9.75 at Costco)
ETA: The cost for a 3 lb. bag at Costco is now $13.99
4 cups water, more if desired
a pinch of sea salt
honey, to taste
1 tsp vanilla extract
Soak the almonds in some water for 8-12 hours.
After they have soaked, drain the water and blend all the ingredients on high in a blender.

Pour in a glass jar and refrigerate for an hour or so. Enjoy!
