SWEET tooth connoisseurs will be licking their lips in anticipation of a healthy, taste-bud tempting Homegrown Festival event.

The Sweet Treats Swap workshop is not to be missed for anyone who knows their trifle from their tiramisu but wants to stay healthy at the same time.

Workshop host and nutritionist Gemma Clark said the hands-on event would teach people how to enjoy sweet foods while not compromising health.

“The workshop shows people they can still enjoy treats, desserts and sweet things without compromising their health, showing them alternatives they can make at home to feel like they’re not missing out,” she said.

“It also to give them healthier options, which nourish them as well as feel like a guilty pleasure.”

The event also discusses the importance of reducing sugar intake while finding nutritious alternatives to the most popular sweetened products.

Ms Clark promised the dishes participants would get the chance to road-test (including a berry cheesecake and homemade chocolate) were low on sugar, but also “dad proof”.

“All my recipes have gone to dad and if dad doesn’t realise they’re healthy, it gets the tick of approval,” she said.

Sweet Treats Swap takes place on March 14 from 5.30-7.30pm at The Agonis in Gosnells. The event is free, but registrations are essential.
