I don't know why your coach would say no Vanilla
Ideal Protein uses in vanilla in some of their official recipes
here is one I just copied from my ideal protein:
Chocolate Cake in a Mug
•1 package of Ideal Protein chocolate drink mix
•1 egg white
•1 tsp baking powder
•1 tsp grapeseed oil
•1/2 stevia packet
•A dash of vanilla
•1 tbsp. Walden Farms syrup (raspberry, caramel, or chocolate)
Pour the chocolate drink mix into a large microwave safe mug. Add enough water to bring to a slightly watery pudding consistency. Add egg white, baking powder, olive oil, stevia and vanilla while mixing vigorously until silky smooth. Place the mug in the microwave for three minutes on top of another plate. Carefully remove the mug from the microwave, drizzle with your Walden Farms syrup of choice, and enjoy!
