I want to make an apricot pie but I want to mix it with another fruit. Does anyone have any ideas?

Peach? Sounds like a yummy combo to me...

Mango? Banana? Apple?
Apricot goes well with a lot of sweeter fruits - I like the combination.

I'd go peach and apricot too! I loved my mum's peach and apricot crumbles! I remember looking around Rawkinlocs' site http://eatlivingfood.com/recipes.htm and seeing a yummy sounding recipe for Peach Cobler;
2 c. nuts of choice (I personally used a combination of almonds and walnuts)
1/4 c. raw agave nectar, honey (preferably raw) or soft, UNsoaked dates (preferably medjool)
1/2 c. ground oat groats or organic rolled oats (grind in Vitamix or coffee grinder)
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. coconut oil (opt. but provides a slight "buttery" taste)
dash or two of cinnamon
5-6 fresh peaches or nectarines (can substitute with apples)
1 c. soaked and pitted dates (drained)
2 TBS. raw agave nectar or raw honey
2 tsp. cinnamon (or to taste)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 tsp. allspice (opt.)
2 tsp. coconut oil (opt. but provides a slight "buttery" taste)
1/2 - 3/4 c. water
Place all crust ingredients in a food processor and pulse until crumbly. Move from processor to a bowl and set aside.
Process all filling ingredients except the peaches (apples) into a creamy sauce using either a blender or food processor and adding small amounts of the water at a time to help it blend and get the desired consistency. Set aside in a bowl. Wash, peel and chop the peaches into desired size (cubes or slices) and mix with the sauce in the bowl. If using apples, peel and core the apples. Optional step: Allow to marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 hours (overnight or 24 hours is even better!) This step (marinating) is optional, but makes the peaches soften up and absorb the flavors of the sauce better...but you can make this all at once without marinating and it's still good!
Sprinkle half of the crumbly crust mixture into the bottom of pie dish or pan of choice. You can either leave it crumbly or press it down into the pan or not even have any crust on the bottom but rather just on top!
Spoon the filling on top of the bottom layer of crust evenly. Sprinkle the remaining crumbly crust on top of the filling. At this point, you can either (if you have a dehydrator with removable trays that allow tall items to fit) put the whole dish into the dehydrator for an hour or two OR you can serve right away. Keep any leftovers in the refrigerator. You can also spoon out single servings onto dehydrator proctective tray (teflex, parchment paper, etc.) and warm in the dehydrator!
I havent made it..yet! But it sounds delicious :)
