Instant Pot Passion Fruit Pie
I am having so much fun concocting pie recipes in my Instant Pot. This time I went Venezuelan and made this amazing Passion Fruit Pie (perfect timing for Valentine’s day).
Passion Fruit, just like citrus is very tangy but it has a very distinctive bright flavor that is delicious in pies, cookies, smoothies, mousses, cakes, etc. I even add a bit to my salad dressing from time to time.
For me, it’s a no-brainer. I grew up with this flavor and every time I see it somewhere, I have to buy it. Just like mangoes.
If you can’t find the actual fruit in your product aisle, theÂ pulp readily available at the frozen section of your supermarket.
Last week I made Instant Pot Key Lime Pie and this time I started wracking my brain thinking what dessert to make, luckily it came to me,Â Instant Pot Passion Fruit Pie. Easy, exotic, citrusy, creamy and delicious.
I topped mine with a passion fruit coulis which is easy to make and only requires 2 ingredients. But you can certainly omit it if you would like to leave it as it is or just pipe whipped cream in a nice concentric circle.
I used a 7â³ inch springform pan instead of the usual 9â³ pan. This size feeds more or less 5-6 people so if youâre doing it for a party, make 2-3 pies. In my house, itâs perfect for a weeknight dessert.
To make this pie, I chose to do it in the pressure cooker, just to avoid turning on the oven. If you don’t own one, simply bake it at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the center jiggles just a bit.
I hope you can try this delicious Instant Pot Passion Fruit Pie at home. If you do, please upload a pic on Instagram and tag me @Livingsweetmoments or use the hashtag #LivingSweet. I promise to repost it.

- 1 cup butter or shortbread cookies (I used Maria)
- 4 tablespoons butter melted
- 4 large egg yolks
- 14 oz condensed milk
- 1/2 cup passion fruit pulp (thaw if frozen)
- 3/4 cup passion fruit pulp (thaw if frozen)
- 1/2 cup sugar
Spray a 7" springform pan with nonstick spray
Ground the cookies in the food processor
In a bowl, mix the cookies crumbs with the melted butter
Press this mixture into the bottom and sides of the springform pan. Freeze while making the filling
For filling: place the passion fruit pulp, condensed milk, and yolks in a blender. Blend on high until combined and creamy
Pour this mixture on top of the prepared crust
Cover the springform pan with aluminum foil
Make a sling with aluminum foil: Break a long piece of foil and fold into 3. The idea is to get a long thin rectangle (helps remove the pie from the instant pot quicker)
Pour 1 cup of water in the instant pot. Place trivet on top
Cook on manual high pressure for 15 minutes (15 MHP)
Let the pie cool for 10 minutes before releasing the pressure (10 NPR)
Remove the pie from the instant pot using the sling and cool and remove the aluminum foil cover. Center should be a bit jiggly
Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or until set
In a saucepan, combine the passion fruit and sugar. Cook on medium-low heat while stirring frequently until the mixture has reduced and become thick.
Refrigerate and when cool, pour on top of the pie.
