Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes Recipe | NO drain, NO chop, NO Heating Milk

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes are very simple, creamy and fluffy in 30 minutes in one pot recipe. No drain, no cutting potatoes into small chunks and no heating up milk separately. Simply the best way to make mashed potatoes!


I am truly obsessed with Instant Pot. If you visit my blog you will see I post 1-3 Healthy Instant Pot recipes per week. It saves me so much time to put dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes active cooking time.

I own 2 Instant Pots and 1 Cosori. In this video is 6 Quart Instant Pot Lux I also have 8 quart Instant Pot DUO which is excellent for larger recipes with leftovers love soups, stews and yogurt.

Thaw on a counter for 4-5 hours or in the fridge overnight. Warm up on the stove on low with a splash of milk.
