Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Filling

One of my main reasons for having an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker is how much easier it can make your life when cooking. For me the attraction with the Instant Pot is one pot cooking and cooking quicker.

Making Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Filling is another one of the great examples of this.

You start by cooking Instant Pot Pumpkin Puree and once the Instant Pot has finished steaming you add in the extra ingredients to turn it into a delicious and addictive Instant Pot pumpkin pie filling.

There is very little washing up as everything happens in the Instant Pot.

Making this Instant Pot recipe today, also perfect if you want to make some Instant Pot Pumpkin Puree for your baby, or for a soup, you can then pick of choose what you add in and what part of this recipe for Instant Pot Pumpkin that you follow.

My inspiration today, was all about showing you how simple cooking pumpkin is in the Instant Pot and how easier it can make meal prep.

But before we jump in with the Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Filling let me tell you a secret. This is a secret that needs sharing with mums, aunts and grandmas around the Instant Pot community.

Pumpkin is fantastic for hidden veggies for kids. Have kids that HATE vegetables than make our pumpkin puree and blend it with your favourite seasonings and load it into a pasta dish and the kids will never know just how much pumpkin they just ate.

You will have a smile on your face for weeks afterwards, when you remember all the compliments you received for your pasta dish and how many times, they begged you for leftovers!

Instant Pot Pumpkin Chunks

I always start off with just diced Instant Pot Pumpkin Chunks. I always have a good stash of them in the fridge as they are also perfect for me to cook in my air fryer.

You can then load your Instant Pot Pumpkin Chunks and use them in a whole range of dishes. Such as my Instant Pot Beef & Pumpkin Stew.

With a lot of Instant Pot pumpkin recipes, they will call for chunks of pumpkin, so once you have chopped your pumpkin into chunks the hard work is already done.

Instant Pot Pumpkin Puree

I loved weaning my little ones onto solids. It was a fun experience with a lot of baby bibs that were covered in bright coloured mess.

I watched as Sofia started her addiction to broccoli and carrot and how much Jorge loved pumpkin or butternut squash.

The wonderful thing about the Instant Pot is how fantastic it is for creating any type of fruit or vegetable puree. You can also use it as a base for any soup in the Instant Pot as well as vegetable sauces and so much more.

If you want to make pumpkin puree in your Instant Pot it is simple as this:

  1. Place your diced pumpkin into the Instant Pot inner pot.
  2. Add in a cup of water and any extra seasonings. For example, we added ginger to ours.
  3. Pressure cook for 4 minutes and manually release pressure.
  4. Drain and using your favourite hand blender, blend until smooth.

It really is that simple and a great use for your Instant Pot.

Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Filling ingredients

To turn your pumpkin puree into pumpkin pie filling you’re just adding in extra ingredients at the end.

All those favourite ingredients that you associate with a delicious pumpkin pie go in and get mixed well with a hand mixer. Such as:

  • Double Cream
  • Brown Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg

I have a hand mixer that I bought by Philips and it does an amazing job. It’s the same hand mixer I use when I make Air Fryer chocolate chip cookies or if I am making a dessert with my favourite soft cheese.

How To Make Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Filling?

Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Filling step by step

Making Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Filling is easy. To keep myself organised and to make it even quicker to make my own homemade Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Filling I will separate the process into stages.

  • Stage #1 – Chop the pumpkin into pumpkin chunks and cook with ginger in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. By adding ginger to your pumpkin pie filling makes it more flavoursome and then you don’t need dried ginger in your pie.
  • Stage #2 – While the pumpkin is cooking in the Instant Pot, I will get the rest of the pumpkin pie filling ingredients ready. If I am making a homemade air fryer pie crust, I will make it at this point to save time.
  • Stage #3 – I will drain the pumpkin thoroughly as pumpkin holds a lot of water and if you have too much water it makes the filling harder to set.
  • Stage #4 – Add in the rest of the ingredients to make the pumpkin pie filling. The great thing here is that it can all be mixed in the Instant Pot saving you a lot of time on washing up.

Though if you would like to run through the process of making a homemade pie crust through to cooking your pumpkin pie, I recommend you check out our Air Fryer Pumpkin Pie recipe.

Ingredients

Instant Pot Pumpkin Puree:

Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Filling:

Instructions

  • Make your pumpkin puree first. Dice your ginger and pumpkin and place it into your Instant Pot. Add a cup of cold water and set the valve to sealing and cook for 4 minutes. Manually release pressure and drain your pumpkin puree well. If just using this recipe for puree and not pie, blend now.
  • Turn your pumpkin puree into pumpkin pie filling. Add in the rest of the ingredients apart from the dairy. Mix well with a hand mixer. Then slowly add in the cream and the milk.

Notes

I have split the pumpkin pie filling recipe above into two. That way if you just want to puree your pumpkin you can just follow that, or you can carry on through to making a delicious Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Filling.
It is important that you drain any excess water from your pumpkin. A pumpkin holds a lot of water and I recommend you drain, leave it to rest for 5 minutes in the Instant Pot and drain again as you will see more water appearing in the bottom if it needs a second drain.
This Instant Pot Pumpkin Pie Filling is enough to make a homemade pumpkin pie to feed 8 people.
