English term or phrase: but with no added cream or milk
I have a last minute addition to a brochure text already translated by another translator, but unfortunately he is on holiday now.
The English says "XXX is the new drink everyone was waiting for - a white Amaretto, the latest in the growing ranks of creamy, sweet liqueurs with a low alcohol content, but with no added cream or milk."
It is the last seven words which have been added. The Greek reads "ένα λευκό Amaretto, η απάντηση στην ολοένα αυξανόμενη ζήτηση για κρεμώδη, γλυκά λικέρ με χαμηλή περιεκτικότητα σε αλκοόλ." Could someone very kindly please add the cream or milk?

Since everybody agrees that I always use one word too many, and they\'re definitely right, I\'ll correct it to:
\"αλλά χωρίς προσθήκη κρέμας ή γάλακτος\"

agree  Daphne Theodoraki: Correct, but preferably without the article: αλλά χωρίς προσθήκη κρέμας ή γάλακτος// Ναι, είδες, είμαι των λακωνικών απαντήσεων ;-) (απλώς μου ακούγεται καλύτερο χωρίς το άρθρο)
