Here are my favorite 21 Day Fix Instant Pot freezer meals for you to work into your next meal plan. You’ll have some leftovers so plan to work those in on the weekends or for lunches throughout the week!
What do I need to get started with Instant Pot freezer meals?
Start with an Instant Pot, some 21 Day Fix containers, or measuring devices, containers to freeze your meals, and be sure you have space in the freezer for all of your meals! If you’re on the fence about which Instant Pot to get, check out my handy guide right here.
I’ve found that these supplies help with this process:
If you are planning to do this on an ongoing basis I would highly recommend you get these items. Having sealing rings, freezer tape, storage containers, and multiple inner pots for the Instant Pot are a game changer for making the freezer meals meal prep cycle easier and quicker.
- Freezer tape for making labels
- Instant Pot (or multiples if you want, find your best model here)
- Large storage containers or bags if you will be using the recipes fairly quickly.
- Extra Instant Pot inner pots so you switch quickly between recipes and prep for the next one if you are doing recipes back to back
- Extra sealing rings for Instant Pot to help with different odors / flavors. Check this post out for more info on that subject.
21 Day Fix Instant Pot Freezer Meals to Make and Freeze:
These are all recipes that you can cook and freeze in advance. All of these tasty meals will make life simple and easy on those nights when you don’t have time to prep and cook a whole meal!
I set these out to thaw for a bit (to help with the liquid needed in the post), or add 1 cup of water at the bottom and then heat for half the time called for in the recipe. Your pot will take a bit longer to come to pressure, but cook time doesn’t change.
If by chance your meal isn’t heated thoroughly when your IP timer is done, hit the saute button and warm it that way.

Tips for reheating 21 Day Fix Instant Pot freezer meals without the Instant Pot:
- For freezer meals that have a lot of liquid like soups, stews, and chili you’ll want to submerge the frozen meal in hot water in the sink and then once it has a chance to thaw most of the way you can put it in a saucepan or into the microwave to finish heating!
- Casseroles and pasta dishes I recommend giving them at least 24 hours to thaw in the refrigerator before reheating so they don’t dry out and over cook during the reheating process.
- Having some stock/broth on hand to add to your meals as you reheat them can help get them back to the most perfect consistency!
