I used the banana this time (yay) but didnt find exactly what i was looking for... what exactly is soaking. I know you soak nuts but what do you soak them in...water? and is the reason you soak nuts the same as why you would soak prunes?

Soaking is most times done in water. But there have been recipes where raisins may be soaked in fresh orange juice.
Nuts are soaked to remove enzyme inhibitors while soaking of prunes (or dates, raisins or other dried fruit) is to make softer and easier to blend (or eat I suppose)

Prunes are dried. Soaking rehydrates them for easier digestability. Make sure they are unsulfited and not treated with other chemicals.

Remember to discard the water after soaking nuts (and even change it a few times if you wish) but you can use the water that you have soaked dried fruit in

does it matter if its warm or cold or room temp water

Just use room temperature water, delerium. Since the nuts are going to soak on your counter for 12 hrs or overnight, usually, it'll be room temperature soon anyway. :D
