What’s In Pressure Cooker Chocolate Rice Pudding?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Arborio Rice: classic risotto rice. It’s a thick short rice that soaks up a LOT of liquid, making the pudding super creamy without adding any dairy. Make sure you use classic arborio rice for this recipe – jasmine or basmati rice will work but not be as thick and creamy.
  • Milk – I used unsweetened Almond Milk for my version of this recipe.
  • Raw Cacao Powder: this raw unsweetened cacao powder is a good addition. Make sure you use a raw cacao powder and not sweetened baking cocoa… it makes a huge difference.
  • Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
  • Maple Syrup:  I really like using this raw organic agave syrup because it’s a natural.
  • Coconut Milk: I use unsweetened full-fat coconut milk, which I’d definitely recommend over lite coconut milk. The flavor makes this dish super rich and creamy without any dairy.
  • Vanilla Extract: it’s super important to use real pure vanilla extract, and not artificial baking vanilla flavor.

Instant Pot Dessert Recipes for Meal Prep Treats!

Of all my kitchen appliances, and I mean ALL of them, my Instant Pot pressure cooker is my most-used! I cook everything in it from beans and legumes, to soups and pasta dishes.

You can get Instant Pots in many sizes, but I like my 8-quart model, which is ideal for batch cooking and meal prep. It also has a quicker pressure-release feature which saves me even more cooking time.

I love that everything can cook in one pot, which makes for way less dishes and hands-off cooking. The Instant Pot is hands-down my favorite kitchen appliance, and actually makes my life so much easier.
