The Phillips Avenue Diner is one of the most popular spots for Instagram photos in Sioux Falls. Why? Their classic shakes. Bring Instagram-worthy treats home with these two recipes. But, really, if it wasn’t taken at the malt-shop-inspired restaurant, did it happen?
1 Spoon Graham Crackers
3 Scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
2 Oz. Milk
1 Swirl Hot Fudge
1 Spoon Mini Marshmallows
1 Maraschino Cherry
Put all of the ingredients except the marshmallows into a shake mixer.
Add more milk if you want a thinner shake.
After adding marshmallows to the top, toast at discretion. Top off with cherry.
“It has a campfire smell to it and is a nostalgic dessert.”

“I had never heard of it before. I love quick bread, but I never thought of frying it or grilling it, and I love the mix of the hearty and the sweet.”
