With each new year comes a host of new food trends which are likely to take over your diet (and your Instagram feed). With this in mind, a new Waitrose survey has predicted which food fads are likely to win over British consumers in 2017, with watermelon juice, Hawaiian Poké and vegetable yoghurt leading the way.

Waitrose's annual survey was based on millions of transactions made in store and online. This information was then combined with a poll of 2,000 adults of all ages and a number of focus group sessions. The results looked at which food trends made the most impact in 2016 and predicted what we will be eating when the new year comes around.

The survey identified seaweed, cactus water, churros and Asian steamed buns as some of the biggest food trends of this year and also noted, unsurprisingly, that consumer interest in creating photogenic dishes saw a huge spike.

With this in mind, Waitrose predicted that these six food trends were most likely to win us over in 2017.

1. Watermelon juice

Made with watermelon flesh, rind and lemon, the juice is already very popular in America with Beyoncé even buying a stake in a watermelon water company in May of this year.

2. Polynesian food

Or more specifically, Poké, a Hawaiian salad made up of raw fish that has been marinated with lime, soy and sesame. If you want to get your fix early, there are already a number of Poké bars to be found.

3. Vegetable yoghurt

Scary as it may sound, this strange trend is already very popular in the States. Think carrot, beetroot and tomato-flavoured yoghurt which apparently tastes rather a lot like sour cream.

4. Perfume-inspired cocktails

Waitrose has predicted that fragrance-led cocktails will become the new nighttime drink of choice.

5. Foodie meal kits

Gourmet meal kits which have pre-measured and pre-prepared ingredients look to be on the up as our lives get even busier.

6. Freakshakes

And more occasional extreme indulgence. While most food trends of late tend to be health-driven, there is an appetite for the occasional delicious binge, for example the Australian "freakshakes" which look set to be big (again) in 2017.
