That’s right, if you ever wondered “Can you make pudding in the Instant Pot?” The answer is YES!

How to Make Instant Pot Rice Pudding 

Instant Pot Rice Pudding is a family favorite, so let’s start with this Instant Pot pudding recipe. This recipe is super simple. As a meal hack, anytime we make rice for dinner – we make extra. Also,  if you aren’t making rice in your Instant Pot, make sure you read our post: How to Make Instant Pot Rice  – seriously best rice ever. Anyways, here is our family recipe for Instant Pot Rice Pudding.

Instant Pot Rice Pudding

We use leftover rice for this recipe. Since we typically use Japanese white rice, this is what is used with this recipe.  Make sure to try the add-ins to customize the rice pudding to be as unique as you!

Here is our favorite Instant Pot Rice Pudding recipe. It’s super simple and delish!

  • 2 Cups White Rice (We prefer Japanese sticky rice)
  • 1 Packet Vanilla Pudding
  • 1.5 Cup Milk
  • 1/2 Can Sweet Condensed Milk (You can adjust this to make it sweeter, or less sweet)
  • 2 Tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tbsp Nutmeg (Optional)
  • 1/2 Tbsp Vanilla (Optional)
  1. Make rice in the Instant Pot. Check out our how to make rice recipe if you haven’t made rice in the IP before.

  2. Mix your vanilla pudding mix with the milk in a side mixing bowl. 

  3. After your rice is finished, mix in the sweet condensed milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and then your vanilla pudding mix. 

  4. The rice pudding will be nice and gooey. Add more milk if you desire a thinner pudding. 

  5. Enjoy! We like to top our’s with more cinnamon. My husband likes to add in raisins to his rice pudding, but I don’t – so am not including that in this recipe 🙂 

This Instant Pot rice pudding recipe is super simple and easily adaptable. You can customize with various options. We like to use this dessert after making Instant Pot rice – we will make extra just for making rice pudding. 

Here are a few ideas for customizing your rice pudding:

  • Chocolate chips and marshmallows
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Caramel
  • Cream cheese that is mixed with sugar and vanilla (this makes a cheesecake rice pudding!)
  • Raisins – my husband includes boiled raisins. I’m not a fan, but hey – to each their own.

 Best Rice Pudding Ever

My favorite Rice Pudding in the world is Rice to Riches. If you are ever in New York, or want to drop a nice amount of money for delicious rice yumminess delivered to your door – make sure to check them out! One of my besties, Mel had this huge cooler delivered to us last year. It was amazing and I am pretending it had zero calories. On our last adventure to New York, our 2 oldest kids were little (3 years old and 9 months.) It was November, FREEZING cold and we had no idea how to get around the city. BUT where there is a will, there is a way and we found our way to Rice to Riches and it was absolutely the best rice pudding ever.
