  2. Meanwhile, make ice cream shake by adding ice cream of choice and whole milk and mix in blender. Add optional flavorings, if you desire. Pour into cold glass, filling almost to the top.
  3. Spray a generous amount of whipped cream on top. This will be the structure for the accessory toppings.
