It all started when...

Jen created Jen’s Zen so that she can share her delicious desserts with others who desire special treats without dairy.  Jen grew up on rich foods in Iowa and began adjusting her diet when she became lactose intolerant about 20 years ago. Her world changed even more when her son was born with a milk allergy.


Jen had to study the ingredient statement of every product she purchased before sharing it with her son - she couldn’t believe how difficult it was to find desserts that didn’t contain milk derivatives.  After spending her entire career working toward a cleaner planet, she also couldn’t believe how much junk was in our food.


Jen’s Zen is about balancing Jen’s passion for food that is delicious with her commitment to using real ingredients that are clean and organic.
