Milkshake is usually made from milk, ice cream, fresh fruit or chocolate. But for Americans living in neighboring Rhode Island or neighboring Massachusetts, whipped milk is made without ice cream, only milk is shaken with flavored syrup. A milkshake that uses ice cream is called cabinet because it was once made with a shaker machine shaped a small box or cabinet. In the state of New England, shakes made with ice cream are called velvet or frappe. The term frappe has been used since the 19th century for a kind of iced drink.
