Step 1 Pour about 3/4 cup milk into the blender and add about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of ice cream. The more ice cream you use, the thicker the milkshake will be. Drizzle in any desired syrups or other flavorings, or drop in berries or maybe a sliced banana.
Step 2 Blend your milkshake until smooth, making sure not to overheat the motor. Add more milk if the shake is too thick or scoop in a little more ice cream if the consistency is too thin for your taste.
Step 3 Pour into a chilled glass and add a dollop of whipped topping.
