  • 1 tablespoon key lime zest


  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Spray a 7 inch Springform pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs with butter and sugar.

  • Place one cup water into the bottom of your Instant Pot liner and place trivet (the one that came with it) on bottom.
  • Create a sling using tin foil (or see link above for silicone one) and place pan on top.
  • Lower the pan carefully on top of the trivet.
  • Place lid on Instant Pot and ensure valve is in sealing position.
  • Select manual/high pressure for 25 minutes followed by a 10 minute natural pressure release.
  • After 10 minute natural pressure release, do a quick pressure release and allow pin to drop.
  • Open lid and carefully blot top of cheesecake with paper towel to absorb any excess moisture.
  • Lift sling out of Instant Pot and place on flat surface to cool.
  • Once the cheesecake has cooled, cover top with plastic wrap and place into refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours.
