Rice pudding is a dish made from rice mixed with water or milk and other ingredients such as cinnamon and raisins.

Why I Love My Instant Pot

I love that you can even make instant pot desserts in the Instant Pot. It is pretty much magic!

Do you remember the first time you used a crockpot?! I do! I thought I could leave it for the whole day when I was at work and have a home cooked meal when I got home. It turns out, I worked too many hours for a slow cooker to work for me. The meat was overdone, and I realized that takeout is the only thing possible for someone who works 7 am to 7 pm. Gone are those days of 7 to 7 out of the house, but I still long for a quick meal.

“I Love My Instant Pot” Recipe Book

When the publisher of ‘I Love My Instant Pot’ emailed me about reviewing their cookbook, I was all for it. I was dying to learn more about what I can make with my Instant Pot!!

Today, I am sharing an Instant Pot Dessert recipe from The ‘I Love My Instant Pot’ Recipe Book for Instant Pot Rice Pudding. This pudding is just what I have been looking for! It’s something semi-sweet, but not super fattening!! I just need a couple of spoons of sweetness per day to make sure that I don’t dive into a cake during a random sugar craving. Feel like taking your Instant Pot baking up a notch, try out this Instant Pot Flan.

What makes this Instant Pot Rice Pudding Deliciously Wholesome?

It’s made with organic short grain brown rice. That’s a big title! Let’s break it down a little.

Organic rice is rice that is certified by an independent body, to have been grown and processed according to set “organic” standards. Short grain rice indicates grains that are less than twice as long as they are wide. When cooked, it will be chewier and stickier than its longer grained counterparts. Brown rice is unpolished rice with only the husk of the grain removed.

Tools and Supplies for Making Instant Pot Rice Pudding

For this easy Instant Pot Rice Pudding, the supplies were very minimal. I used my favorite measuring cups and measuring spoons. You’ll also need a good mixing spoon like this one. I like to serve the pudding in these cute little mason jars. See what else we are loving in this Ultimate Kitchen Tool and Equipment Guide.

  1. I must try this. I tried making brown rice pudding with long grain brown rice, with disastrous results. Absolutely inedible! So I am eager to try this recipe (but without raisins. I don’t do raisins!)

  2. I just made this and it turned out fabulously. I used currants instead of raisins as raisins are nasty. I doubled the recipebut not the honey and it was sweet enough. I did not have cream as i live out of town. I did use powered milk and was fine. I will definitely make this again.
