We generally eat more or less the same each day during the workweek, but mix things up on the weekend:

Breakfast and Lunch: Smoothie w/ 1 cup frozen fruit (either berries or peaches); 1 heaping tablespoon flax seeds, 1 heaping tablespoon natural pb, 1 scoop whey protein powder, 1 scoop Amazing Grass ( wfs.

Snack(s) consist of handfuls of almonds

For dinner we'll generally do something simple and vegetable based; e.g: mashed cauliflower, roasted sweet potato, sauteed onions pepper & mushrooms

Most days she'll have a cup of ice cream from TJ's as a desert.

The problem may just be not enough sleep.

I know it sounds strange, but I eat almost entire the same (but no ice cream, and I do have meat when it's offered, but don't make any at home), and am good on about 7 hours of sleep and a 15-20 minute hard workout (either kettlebells or sprint/hill run) each morning
I agree with Amber. It seems like your girlfriend is not consuming much protein or calories, however I don't know what your girlfriend's bodyweight is so it's difficult to tell. I would eat more real food and not rely on whey or Amazing Grass powder. Those powders usually only contain around 110 calories per serving.

I would ditch the ice cream for dessert and replace it with cottage cheese or yogurt/Greek yogurt. All of the smoothie ingredients listed would taste good with cottage cheese or yogurt. IMO
