Easy Instant Pot Filipino Champorado Recipe (Chocolate Rice Pudding)

Filipino Champorado Recipe featured by top US food blogger Sylvie in the Sky

Filipino Champorado is a beloved sweet dish all Filipino children grow up eating at least once in their life (usually more, because it’s soooo good). What is Filipino Champorado? It’s a chocolate rice pudding or porridge, made with coconut milk, and commonly served for breakfast with a topping or side of bacon or salted fish. My brother and I grew up eating Champorado as a special breakfast, and we cheered (and finished our bowls in 2 minutes) every time. Now as a mom, I’m happy I get to make and share this very same Filipino Champorado Recipe with my own kids. And with my Instant Pot, making Filipino Champorado Chocolate Rice Pudding is faster and easier than ever. Read on for my Chocolate Rice Pudding Filipino Champorado Recipe below.
