I think the best option is to run that detector (both the amplifier side and the LED side) from a regulated 5V supply. However, the readings you are getting appear to be roughly ratiometric with the supply voltage. Therefore, if you feed the output into in analog input of an Arduino that is powered from the same 5V supply, then the ADC will approximately compensate for supply voltage variation.
