Ashley & Co’s Choc Banana Mousse with Nutty Crumb



  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 bananas
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • ¼ tsp salt

Nutty Crumb

  • ½ cup macadamia nuts
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • ¼ cup hazelnuts
  • ¾ cup coconut thread
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


  • Before you start, preheat oven to 180°C.
  • Combine all mousse ingredients together in a blender and blend for about 1 minute, until smooth and mousse-like in consistency. Transfer to a bowl, cover and place in the fridge for about 1 hour to set.
  • Place macadamias, almonds, hazelnuts and coconut thread in a blender and pulse a couple of times, until nuts have been roughly chopped. Melt coconut oil in a large heat-proof bowl in the microwave. Once melted, add maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Add nuts and toss to coat.
  • Transfer mixture to a lined oven tray and bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  • Serve mousse with nutty crumb.

Founder & Owner

Ashley & Co. is a modern day scent company. Established over a decade ago by Jackie Ashley, their unique scent style is locally produced and found across New Zealand and worldwide.

Jackie is a Kiwi but has been strongly influenced by a childhood spent in Hong Kong; the heady scents of incense, the rich colours, daily rituals, food and flowers. Along with her love of New Zealand, these rich memories influence the way Jackie crafts scents.

Like an amazing meal, our response to scent can have an indelible, positive influence on our mood. Jackie’s belief in the uplifting benefits of a life filled with scent drives her vision; to refine and revitalise our daily experiences.

That’s why she’s created a range of products that can be used liberally and often. From Body, Hair, Home, Essential Cleaning – and even Pet Care – Ashley & Co. can elevate your everyday in so many ways.
