Instant Pot Rice Pudding RecipeInstant Pot Rice Pudding is one of the easiest ways to make the most delicious and creamy rice pudding you have ever tasted! Seriously, this rice pudding rocks my world! It reminds me a lot of my childhood and of the endless, fun summers spend at my grandparents. I was always excited to eat some sticky and creamy rice pudding. As a self proclaimed milk hater (I know, weird) I actually love rice pudding, its the epitome of comfort food! I would happily eat it under a blanket rewatching favorite movies.

Here is a fun, 1 minute, step-by-step video of how to make this recipe!

The Instant Pot Rice Pudding is so easy to make, that now I may be in trouble and make it a few times a week. Seriously, in 30 minutes you are rewarded with a rice pudding with perfect texture, sweet and fragrant from the cinnamon and nutmeg. I love mine served with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon and a little brown sugar on top. When that sugar melts, mmm OMG, my taste buds explode! Do yourself a favor and make this!

Recommendation for best Instant Pot Rice Pudding Recipe:

  • I used white, long grain rice in this recipe. Basmati or sushi rice will also work well.
  • I haven’t added any sugar, because at the end, I stir in the condensed milk and I feel that it adds enough sweetness.
  • I highly recommend using nutmeg and cinnamon, it will take your pudding from good to wow.
  • You can also mix in walnuts and raisins. I prefer to add them at the end to preserve most of the crunchiness and chewiness.
  • You can use creamy canned coconut milk and sweeten the rice with sugar, and skip the condensed milk for a vegan, lower fat version.
  • This is my Instant Pot – I use it all the time, either the Pressure Cooker function or the Slow Cooker function. I also like that I can just sauté / brown the meat and veggies directly in the pot using the Sauté function.

Recipe Notes

*Full fat coconut milk works great too, I also tried it with soy milk and it turned out good.

*A Natural Pressure Release means that the pressure is released gradually. For a Natural Pressure Release, you click on Keep Warm, and wait 10 minutes, after which you open the valve and let any leftover pressure to release. Another option is to Turn Off/Unplug the pressure cooker, wait 10 minutes and after that open the valve. A natural release is usually used when cooking soups, meat in a large amount of sauce, pasta or steel cut oats. This method prevents for any foam from the dish to shoot out through the valve, which can happen during a Quick Pressure Release.

  14. Did you use the Rice cup from the instant pot kit or a regular cup?

  15. I made this and it was beautiful and delicious and I put it in the fridge to save until the potluck I was going to 6 hours later. When I pulled it out of the fridge it was super thick. I added milk but it seemed to make it more bland. What do you usually do after you put it in the fridge?

    • Hi Jobie, I am sorry you comment went into the spam folder, I just rescued it. Preferably you would serve the rice pudding right away, but to answer your question: heat it up on the stove adding the milk a little at a time and if you feel like it get bland, add 1/4 cup of condensed milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

  17. Can I use 2% milk instead?

  18. Pingback: Instant Pot Chocolate Peppermint Rice Pudding – Chicago Jogger

  19. Can I use 2% milk? I never buy whole milk, so don’t have it on hand!

  20. Wishing this recipe for the 3qt IP?

  21. I found it a little too sweet with the recipe as written. I am not sure what the size of the can of condensed milk you used was, but I found a full can (300 ml) to be too much. I think I would use half of that next time. But otherwise, it was excellent.

    As with porridge, I used 2 cups of water in the Instantpot, then placed the rack under a stainless steel bowl in which I placed the ingredients. I found this to take away any chance of burning the bottom.

  22. If I wanted to include raisins in this (how my Grandma used to make it), how/when would I do that? Thanks!

  23. I just bought a 25 pound bag of jasmine rice. Would this work as well?

  24. If don’t have pressure cooker. What else could I do for cooking?

  25. BeforeI got my IPot, I would precook my rice, add the milk and 2 beaten eggs and seasoning then bake on a 350 oven for about 45 minutes.
    I am trying this recipe this morning. Can hardly wait!

  26. If I double the rice to 2 cups, do I also double all of the milk and water? Sometimes I’ve seen recipes that don’t necessarily double all ingredients.

  27. I have an XL power pressure cooker, no porridge button, unless you mean soup button? Thanks

  28. Anybody try this with 1% or even sim milk?

  29. I tried the recipe tonight and it was great! I used 1% milk and put in 3/4 of the can of condensed sweetened milk. Still found it a little sweet so I will use 1/2 a can next time.

  30. When I look at other recipes they incorporate eggs and yours does not I’m confused I want to make a good rice putting recipe but I’m not sure which one to follow can you answer my question why some people incorporate eggs

  31. I don’t have a Insta pot can you make this on the stove top? If so what would the cooking time be?

  32. I am uncertain about how to use coconut milk with this.

    Can I sub coconut milk for the whole milk and completely omit the condensed milk.

  33. I accidentally put in the condensed milk and vanilla before cooking. Will it still work or do I need to start a new batch?

  34. I had used 3 cups left over rice from the Chinese restaurant, omitted the water and cooked for 10 Mins since I wasn’t cooking the rice. Also I accidentally added vanilla and Condensed milk before cooking Ooops. but turned out great! one kid said it was a lot sweeter then in the restaurant but ate it all anyways. THANK YOU!
