Best Instant Pot Rice Pudding Recipe – Step by Step Guide: One of the easiest ways to make the best and creamiest rice pudding you’ve ever had is with an Instant Pot. I mean it: this rice pudding rocks my world! There are many memories of my childhood and fun times spent with my grandparents in the summer.

I always looked forward to eating sticky, creamy rice pudding. Even though I say I don’t like milk (I know, I’m weird), I love rice pudding; it’s the perfect comfort food. It sounds great to me. I’d love to eat it while watching favorite movies over and over again.


Best Instant Pot Rice Pudding Recipe – Step by Step Guide

Recipe tips:

  1. In this dish, I used long-grain white rice. You can also use sushi rice or basmati rice. Please keep in mind that Arborio Rice will be the most chewy and that Jasmine and Basmati rice will be the least.
  2. I haven’t put any sugar either because I think the condensed milk adds enough sweetness at the end.
  3. You should use nutmeg and cinnamon in your dessert; it will go from good to WOW.
  4. You can also add figs and peanuts. I like to add them at the end so that most of the crunch and chewiness stays.
  5. For a vegan, lower-fat version, you can use creamy canned coconut milk, add sugar to the rice, and leave out the condensed milk.
  6. My Instant Pot. I use it all the time, either on the Pressure Cooker or the Slow Cooker setting.
  7. Also, I like that the Sauté mode lets me brown the meat and vegetables right in the pot.

Q1. Why make rice pudding in the instant pot?

  • I might be in trouble if I make the Instant Pot Rice Pudding more than once a week. It’s that easy. Seriously, after 30 minutes you’ll have perfect rice pudding that smells great thanks to the cinnamon and spice.
  • I like mine with a little more brown sugar and cinnamon on top. When that sugar melts, my taste buds go crazy! Make this for yourself!

Q2. How to serve rice pudding?

It’s just our taste, but we like our rice pudding warm or hot. A lot of our guests, though, like this tasty dish cold. This means that it will taste great either way. If you want to serve it cold, put it in the fridge before you do so. If you want, you can also add some raisins to it.

Q3. How to refrigerate instant pot rice pudding?

Make sure to let it cool all the way down before putting it in the fridge. After that, put it in a jar that won’t let air in and put it in the fridge for up to three days. If the pudding gets too thick before you serve it, just add some cold milk and stir it in until it’s the right consistency.
