Fresh fruit of almost any variety such as bananas, apples, pears, berries, mango, pineapple or oranges, protein powder, flax seed, nuts, yogurt and even sometimes chocolate nibs and decaf coffee.

Veggie smoothies are just as flavorful and certainly healthy but not as sweet unless you use grapes or pinapple with the greens, carrots and cucumber, etc. There are many great recipe blends to try online.
If she likes anything with a tomato sauce base like spaghetti, lasagne, enchiladas or chili, add as many minced veggies as you can, like carrots, celery, onion, cabbage, squash, etc. If you use them in moderation, the sauce will be thicker but very tasty, much like she expects it to be.
Lastly, chopped salads also work well if she favors them. The addition of cottage cheese, avacado, seeds and nuts (minced fine in a chopper) pickled beets, boiled eggs, organic tofu, chopped or minced meats, potatoes and her favorite dressings can also be good for you and for her.
