Is it possible to be "friends" with an ex if the relationship ended well?

My ex and I broke up a few weeks ago. I assumed we would be friends afterwards because we ended on good terms and we have a few mutual friends. It was her idea to break up and after looking at the situation, while I didn't want things to end, I knew it was for the best for both of us. We both have a lot on our plates right now. She asks our mutual friends how I'm doing, but then when I contact her she's not very friendly. Which doesn't make much sense to me. Is it possible to be friends with an ex? Or will there always be a part of you that views them romantically? Is it possible she still has feelings for me and that's why she's acting this way?

Wow never thought this question would be that popular haha. Thanks for everybody's insight. I guess my follow-up would be, so do you think the break up was harder on her than I imagined? I guess I figured because it was her idea that it was a relatively easy process for her
