To begin making this Instant Pot Strawberry Rhubarb Cheesecake I sprayed a 7″ springform pan with cooking spray.  Then I dumped some gluten free graham crumbs and melted margarine into a small mixing bowl.

Graham crumbs and melted margarine.

After stirring them together well, I pressed the crumbs into the bottom of the springform pan.  I placed the pan in the freezer while I prepared the filling.

The graham crust.

For the filling I dumped some dairy free cream cheese and some granulated sugar into a mixing bowl.

I used an electric hand mixer to beat the cream cheese and sugar together until they were smooth.

Next I dumped in some Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce, vanilla extract and some corn starch.

Make up a batch of Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce and have it on hand to create many new desserts.

Then I added 2 eggs, one at a time, stirring after each addition.  Do not over mix.

I removed the base from the freezer and placed it on a piece of tinfoil.

Next I scraped all the cheesecake batter onto the graham crumb crust.

Then I placed a piece of paper towel over the cheesecake.

I wrapped the cheesecake up well with tinfoil to prevent as much moisture as possible from getting in while it was cooking.

After adding some water to the Instant Pot I used the trivet to lower the cheesecake down into the Pot.

Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 38 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to do a Natural Release for 10 minutes before turning the steam release handle to the venting position.

Then I removed the cheesecake and unwrapped it.

I let the cheesecake cool for about 30 minutes before covering it with plastic wrap.

This dessert needs to be chilled for at least 6 to 8 hours so I normally make it a day ahead and leave in the fridge over night.

Strawberry Rhubarb Cheesecake is tasty on its own but you can kick it up a notch or two by topping it off with more Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce.

Mound it in the center or spread it out evenly over the cheesecake.

This delicious sauce adds flavour and a burst of colour to your menu.

Strawberry Rhubarb Cheesecake is a nice, light ending to any meal.

You and your guests will love this seasonal dessert.

Every mouthful is loaded with creamy cheesecake, rhubarb and strawberries.
