  • 12 ounces pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup apple juice or cider
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 TBS granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 TBS pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Add all ingredients to the instant pot (3 or 6 quart)*; whisk well to combine. Close the top and seal the pressure valve. Set pot to high/manual pressure for 3 minutes. 

  2. When time is up, allow the pressure to release naturally (don't flip the valve) for 5-10 minutes. Carefully release the remaining pressure, then remove the top. Stir to combine and allow to cool completely.

  3. Store in airtight/sealed containers in the fridge until ready to use. Can be frozen as well (see directions above).

Recipe Notes

*If using an 8 quart instant pot, you must double the recipe as you will not have enough liquid for the size of the pot.

Use homemade pumpkin puree (recipe here) for the best taste, but canned will work as well!

Makes about 12 servings (2 TBS each).
