Dump 5 liter and 3 liter cans into the 8 liter can. Then, fill up the 5 liter container from the 8 liter can. Now, take the 5 liter container and fill up the 3 liter container. This leaves 2 liters left over in the 5 liter can. Now, empty the 3 liter can back into 8 liter can. Take the 2 liters left in the 5 liter can and dump that into the 3 liter can. Now, using the remaining amounts left in the 8 liter can, fill up the 5 liter can again. When the 5 liter can is filled again, dump out the remaining milk left in the 8 liter can. Then, take the 2 liters from the 3 liter can, dump back into the emptied 8 liter can. Then, fill up the 3 liter can again. The remaining amount left in the 5 liter can is 2 liters. You can then dump out the amount the amount filled in the 3 liter can again and take the 2 liters in the 8 liter can and dump back into the 5 liter can. The milk would be served in the 5 liter can.
