The Best Instant Pot Rice Pudding

Instant Pot Rice Pudding is one of the easiest ways to make the most delicious and creamy rice pudding!

Seriously, in 30 minutes you are rewarded with rice pudding with perfect texture, sweet, fragrant and Oh! so good!

When I lived in Miami decades ago, I came to love the food.

One of my favorites is Arroz Con Leche (or Rice Pudding).

It is creamy and delicious.

It’s rice pudding. Rice pudding!

It’s the ultimate comfort food. It’s creamy, sweet, perfect.

It’s the dessert that you roll your eyes and sigh as you count all your blessings!

It’s like coming home.

It seems just to warm the soul.

Easy Instant Pot Rice Pudding

After realizing I was only getting to partake of this treat if Abuelita was making it, I took matters into my own hands and asked for the recipe.

I was young and had buckets full of rice after my first attempt, and the hours it took standing in front of the hot stove had me rethinking my love affair with rice pudding.

Things have changed, and now I make Arroz con Leche in the Instant Pot.

It takes about 35 minutes from start to finish and is really easy, yielding the delicious creamy texture I have come to love.

Some like theirs with butter, dates, jam, nuts, maple syrup.

The Spanish use raisins, cinnamon, coconut, and orange zest.

Try pumpkin spice, coconut.

Experiment with different flavors of condensed milk.

Add more sugar or less sugar.

I love mine served with heavy cinnamon and a little brown sugar on top.

When that sugar melts it’s delicious! 

Experiment with different liquids…milk: coconut, almond, whole, skim, or try tea for a different taste.

Don’t use heavy cream; it will curdle.

Yuck!

This easy instant pot rice pudding recipe is a basic recipe.

It is quick to make, and by adding toppings, you can customize it to your own liking.

It makes enough for the four of us to indulge and still have some leftover.

We love it warm.

Trust me; it’s so good warm.

We love it cold.

Please note that when you store it in the refrigerator, it will come back out “dry”…just add milk (or other liquid) and stir back to your desired consistency.

Instant Pot Rice pudding with cinnamon.

I love that the ingredients are my pantry’s basic staples.

Like, seriously…you probably already have everything you need to make this Instant Pot Rice Pudding Recipe.

We love it with generous amounts of cinnamon.

But I encourage you to personalize it with your own flavors.

Try coconut milk or Sweetened Condensed Coconut.

I’m partial to adding coconut manna (about a tablespoon) to the rice before cooking.

Start to finish it’s about 35-minutes. I can wash dishes from dinner and have dessert done at the same time.

When you take the lid off, it will look “mushy.”

Don’t panic

Just start adding the condensed milk and stirring.

It is going to get thicker the longer it sits.

Pressure Cooker Rice Pudding Tips:

  • Don’t use Heavy Cream
  • You can use any type of rice (brown rice you will need to adjust the time). I use short-grain or long-grain white rice. Basmati, Jasmine, work, and are less chewy than traditional white rice.
  • We like it sweet, but you may want to NOT add the sugar the first time and try it with just the condensed milk. 
  • You can use creamy canned coconut milk and sweeten the rice with sugar, and skip the condensed milk for a vegan, lower fat version.
  • If you put this in your refrigerator (or let it sit) the rice will absorb all the liquid. Just stir in warm milk to bring it to the consistency you prefer.

This is the best rice pudding recipe I’ve tried so far! I used almond milk, long grain rice and only about 4 ounces of condensed milk because I didn’t want it to be too sweet. I added raisins at the end which I had plumped in warm water ahead of time and sprinkled cinnamon on top. It is delicious

I just made this rice pudding. It smelled so good when I removed the lid. I used Arborio rice which I really like. It was not soupy just slighty thick. I added only half can of condensed milk because I didn't want it real sweet. I was excited in trying it so I put some in a bowl, added milk to cool it down and some raisans that were soaking in warm water. It was SOOOOOOOO good!!! WOW!

Oh wow!!! I make rice pudding because my son likes it. Until now. I absolutely love the addition of the sweetened condensed milk! I was only mildly a rice pudding fan, but this is now one of my all time favorite desserts. My son put some spoonful of maraschino cherry juice on it just for fun....heaven!!!!

Will almond milk work in this recipe? Is this recipe gluten free?

Yes to both. Almond milk will work and it is gluten free.
