Pressure Cooker Piña Colada Rice Pudding with rum soaked pineapple and triple coconut will make you feel like you are on a tropical island.
You will feel like you are on vacation, enjoying the Tropics with this creamy Piña Colada Rice Pudding. If you have kids around, skip the Coconut Rum, altogether, or just soak half the pineapple in rum. If you prefer a regular traditional rice pudding, you might like my Cinnamon Raisin Rice Pudding. Chunks of pineapple and three different types of coconut make this a very refreshing dessert. If you love coconut, try my Pressure Cooker Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding, made with three types of coconut.
I find that Arborio Rice makes for a very creamy Rice Pudding. If I can substitute white sugar for Florida Crystals Demerara Sugar, I do, as it gives the Rice Pudding a more intense flavor, rather than a cloyingly sweet flavor, but white sugar is fine to use in a pinch. The pudding won’t be white, however. If you don’t have Arborio Rice, use a short grain, starchy rice. The Crème de Coco really gives this pudding a fresh coconut taste.
Any time you use rice, make sure to wash it well with cool water. I have seen real honest to goodness rice washing baskets, but I use my regular ole vegetable strainer, and it works just fine and dandy.
First cook the rice with water and salt.
Yes, I went there. Soak the pineapple tidbits in some coconut rum!
While the rice is cooking, add two eggs to the milk and whisk together very well.
After the short cook time and the pressure has released, add in the coconut milk, sugar and vanilla and stir to combine.
Let the rice pudding cool and then stir in the coconut and pineapple, or, top each individual serving with coconut and the rum soaked pineapple.

- Temper the eggs by adding a Tablespoon of the hot rice pudding into the milk/egg mixture and then slowly pour the milk/egg mixture into Pressure Cooker cooking pot, stirring as you go.
- Select the Sauté or Browning function and allow pudding to come to a slow boil, stirring constantly. Continue to whisk for one minute only.
- Remove cooking pot from Pressure Cooker.
- Allow to cool.
Top each serving with Pineapple Pieces and Toasted and/or Sweetened Coconut and a dollop of whipped cream and a cherry, if desired.
Rice Pudding will thicken as it cools, so if you prefer a thinner pudding, use more than 1/2 cup of milk.
Chill in refrigerator.
For a firmer rice texture, cook rice just 3 minutes.
For a virgin Piña Colada, leave out the Coconut Rum.
