Let's say your were eating a delicious ice cream at your house. Initally, you had 3 scoops of ice cream and you put them into a cup and ate them all. Then, because of the mouthwatering taste of ice cream, you unwittingly made/had another round and you say:

"What the... did I just made another scoop of ice cream?"

Or

"What the... did I just have another scoop of ice cream?"

It has been a confusing thing about this 'made' usage, but my answer here is made. Still, I doubt it, shed some light guys, thx.

    "Did I just make another scoop of ice cream" - sounds like you can make ice cream on your own. "Did I just have another scoop of ice cream" - sounds like you ate another scoop. – shin Mar 6 '18 at 5:14

Had is the correct word. Making would imply you are actually taking the cream and flavor and churning it. Had means you consumed it, or possessed it.

Ex:

I had a nice dish of ice cream

Vs.

I made myself homemade ice cream, then had a scoop of it.
